BHP strengthen due diligence offering

Martin Athey and Charlotte Ellerby

A senior appointment has strengthened BHP Corporate Finance’s specialist due diligence offering.

Charlotte Ellerby joins as Assistant Director from EY’s Transaction Services team in Leeds, where she gained seven years’ transactional experience after joining them as a graduate.

The appointment is the next step in BHP’s continued development of its specialist due diligence offering, following the appointment of Martin Athey (Transaction Services Partner) in August 2019.

The firm has now accelerated its recruitment plans after a successful period working on numerous deals for a variety of clients, including corporate acquirers and funders.

“We are continuing to build the due diligence offering at BHP, bringing strength in depth and experience as well as flexibility and adaptability,” said Martin Athey, Transaction Services Partner at BHP.

“Having expanded quicker than expected in the last six months we are thrilled to have taken on Charlotte.

“Attracting someone with Charlotte’s experience and background is testament to the culture of the firm, its client base and our reputation in the market.”
