PwC has continued to strengthen its Deals team in the North East with a senior appointment. 

Dean Stoyanov, a senior manager in the Debt and Capital Advisory team, has recently joined PwC’s North East Deals team where he will be supporting local businesses that are looking to raise new debt finance, refinance their existing facilities or are going through a financial restructure.

Dean is a qualified chartered accountant with over 7 years of deals experience as both an adviser and a banker, having previously worked in the leveraged finance team at HSBC across Yorkshire and North East. Dean has extensive experience in working with businesses across the spectrum from private equity backed to owner managed SMEs, as well as, through various stages of their life cycles.

The appointment further boosts both the size and scope of PwC Deals offering in the North East.  The PwC Deals team now consists of 19 professional staff, all of whom are based out of its Newcastle office, and who operate as a single team working across Corporate Finance, Business Restructuring, Transaction Services and now Debt and Capital Advisory services.

Dean’s appointment caps a strong finish to 2019 in which the PwC Newcastle Deal team has advised on a number of high-profile transactions, including advising iamproperty to secure minority investment from LDC and a transaction involving Anchor Hanover as the new operator of care homes from Hadrian Healthcare following acquisition by Aviva.

Jonathan Greenaway, the Newcastle Office Senior Partner commented:

“Dean’s appointment highlights our ongoing commitment to not only invest in and grow our Deals capability across the North East but also to bring in additional expertise to enhance our existing offerings to better serve our clients.” 

Dean Stoyanov added:

“I am delighted to be joining the Newcastle Deals team and I am looking forward to working with the wider deals community across the North East.  

The North East region has always been a very buoyant market with plenty of activity and across the team we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to be able to deliver the right advice to our clients”
