Melanie Clark, named at one of the ICAS Top 100 Young CAs 2019, shares her thoughts on her career and what it takes to be a leading CA.
Assistant Director – Hall Morrice Corporate Finance
We set up HMCF in April 2017
HMCF covers a wide range of CF services, from running a sale process for a company whose shareholders wish sell all or part of the company, to providing financial due diligence to Private Equity Houses, and on to building financial models to assist companies with their forecasts.
Since university, I knew I wanted to work in corporate finance as it was the aspect of finance that interested me the most.
I enjoy building client relationships. Selling a business that you have worked to build up over a number of years is a life changing event: we support our clients throughout the full process and knowing we are providing invaluable advice during this time to get the best value for the client is really rewarding.
All the hard work is worth it!
I think you have to be very determined and willing to put in the hard work.
I’m delighted. It is a massive honour to be a member of the Institute and to be recognised by them for all my hard work is fantastic.
Varied. Rewarding. Satisfying.
Going forward, we are focussed on continuing to grow the HMCF business. Since starting HMCF in 2017, we have built up a client base of exciting, fast growing businesses and our focus will be to support these clients as they take the next steps with their business with internationalisation and acquisition and growth strategies.
