Interpath Advisory has announced the appointment of two senior hires to its fast-growing advisory business. Chris Hall joins as a Managing Director, while Tom Rawlinson arrives as a Director.

Mark Raddan, head of Advisory at Interpath, said, “We are delighted to welcome both Chris and Tom to our UK Advisory business. Their arrivals mark the start of a new wave of further investment as we seek to scale our advisory offerings further, both here in the UK and overseas.”

Since Interpath Advisory launched in May 2021, the firm has grown from 43 managing directors and 507 staff to a team of 57 managing directors and circa 620 staff. In addition, it has expanded its global footprint into BVI, Cayman Islands and Anguilla with the acquisition in July 2022 of Kalo; as well as opening offices in Ireland and Northern Ireland, with the hire of a number of senior restructuring and advisory practitioners from Deloitte and KPMG.

Interpath’s advisory practice has been no exception to this exciting period of growth. Offering a broad range of services to clients including debt, M&A and regulatory advisory, as well as transaction and valuation services, the business has grown to 18 managing directors and over 100 people, advising clients on a wide range of issues and opportunities.

Chris Hall joins the debt advisory team as Managing Director. A former EY professional, most recently he spent seven years at Wyvern Partners, a debt advisory boutique, where he worked closely with mid-market private equity houses and leveraged corporates on a wide range of transactions spanning acquisition finance, refinancing, dividend capitalisations and sell-side lender education. Working alongside fellow Managing Director John Miesner, he will be tasked with leading the firm’s efforts in the private equity and leveraged finance space.

Hall remarked, “I am delighted to be joining Interpath, whose scale and experience gained as part of the Big Four, coupled with its independence and agility, means it is ideally placed to help clients navigate these testing conditions. These are really interesting times for the debt markets. Economic volatility and interest rate rises are meaning lenders are being more selective about where they deploy capital and also the terms on which they’re prepared to lend. Therefore, working with an experienced debt advisor is more important than ever when structuring new facilities, identifying potential lenders and negotiating the best possible terms.”

Tom Rawlinson meanwhile arrives as a Director, and will lead Interpath’s transaction services offering in Scotland. Joining the firm from FTI Consulting, Rawlinson brings over 12 years of experience specialising in buy-side and sell-side financial due diligence, primarily for large and mid-cap private equity clients. This previous experience has seen him involved in numerous buy-outs advising both private equity and corporates in sectors such as TMT, consumer goods, business services, healthcare and education.

Rawlinson added, “I’m really proud to have been asked to lead Interpath’s transaction services offering in Scotland. I am particularly excited about the opportunity to broaden our deals capability across Scotland, linking with colleagues so that we can bring the very best of Interpath’s experience and expertise across transaction services, M&A, debt advisory and Tax to bear.”
