Three partner promotions in Machinery & Business Assets and ABL Valuation & Advisory Teams

Neil Simpson / 12 Aug, 20

We have recently made a trio of partner promotions in our asset-based lending and machinery and business asset teams across our Leeds and Manchester offices.

They are Chris Brooke (Asset Based Lending), Mark Rowlands and Stephen Jepson (both Machinery and Business Assets).

The promotions follow another strong quarter of trading for the teams that, despite the Covid-19 Pandemic have not only maintained their service offering but continued to build upon their existing client base as well.

Stephen Jepson is one of the firms longest serving members having started working with us in March 1983. During Stephen’s 37years’ of service his unrivalled disposal experience has proved invaluable to our machinery and business assets team and in recent years he’s worked across a variety of large sales in all manufacturing industries and all other assets including ex-military vehicles & tanks, narrow boats and even a factory full of Christmas decorations.

Chris Brooke is a debt and working capital management specialist that joined us in 2016. Chris brought with him a wealth of experience, having previously worked at BDO and PriceWaterhouseCoopers and enables us to offer a complete asset advisory service, including valuation, advice and management across all asset classes.

Mark has 20 years’ experience working in the machinery and business assets sector having completed work in the UK, across Europe and the UAE. Mark has regularly provided valuation and disposal advice for insolvency, asset-based lending and asset transfer purposes and has gained his ASA accreditation.

“Chris, Mark and Stephen have consistently demonstrated their ability to deliver independent valuation appraisal and disposal advice of the highest quality, build strong client relationships and have become invaluable members of the team over their time at SW.

The pandemic has undoubtedly been a challenging time for all businesses, not least the real estate and business assets industry. Throughout this difficult period we have continued to invest and develop the business and these promotions further demonstrate our commitment to growth as we look forward to the coming period”
