Targets Pan European and global transactions activity with appointment of David Evans as a Managing Director
Leading global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), continues to expand its Transaction Advisory Group with the appointment of David Evans as Managing Director and a European Practice Leader.
Mr. Evans joins A&M’s London office, where he brings over 20 years of experience in transaction service engagements. His primary areas of concentration are buy side and sell side due diligence for private equity and large corporates. Mr. Evans has worked with clients across a range of industries, and has deep expertise in the TMT sector.
Mr. Evans started his career with Arthur Andersen and then Deloitte where he was a partner for 13 years – the last five years of which he spent leading the transaction services team in London. He has worked on over 150 successful transactions in both the UK and internationally and spent three years in Deloitte’s New York office between 2003 and 2006.
Mr. Evans will be working alongside Managing Directors Adrian Balcombe, Age Lindenbergh and Juergen Zapf who are based in the UK, Netherlands and Germany, respectively. The four will now comprise the executive leadership committee of the Transaction Advisory Group Europe practice and will continue to grow the business by establishing new client relationships and hiring and developing talented individuals.
“We are excited to welcome David to the team. The outlook for transaction volumes in Europe is strong and David has acted as lead advisor on numerous deals for major private equity firms and a string of blue-chip corporates. His appointment demonstrates the continued expansion of our Transaction Advisory Group and our commitment to offering high quality advisory services to clients,” said Paul Aversano, Managing Director and Global Practice Leader, with A&M’s Transaction Advisory Group.
David Evans said, “Alvarez & Marsal has several unique attributes that are very attractive to senior candidates like me that may have previously worked for a Big Four firm. I wanted the opportunity to join a fast-growing, global entrepreneurial team offering unique and integrated services to the market, both pre and post-acquisition, and to assist clients with the active implementation of their M&A strategy.
The A&M Transaction Advisory Group I have joined is already a multi-award winning team and I hope to be able to add to the firm’s trophy cabinet going forward by growing the practice, particularly with major sponsors in the TMT sector, by offering clients a truly pan-European team of hands-on senior advisors to service their needs.”
Mr. Evans earned a law degree from the Edinburgh University and is a UK Chartered Accountant.
