Azets promotes dealmaker to Partner

Azets has bolstered its corporate finance team in the North East with the promotion of a prominent dealmaker to partner.

Lee Humble has extensive experience gained across 15 years of working in finance.

He has held a number of roles in banking and corporate finance, both in London and in the North for MHA Tait Walker, which recently became Azets.

“My promotion to partner in such exciting times for the company is one I am delighted with,” said Humble. “As Azets, we have the opportunity to continue helping clients work their way through the tricky market that we are presented with currently.

“Azets’ national reach has opened up new opportunities for the corporate finance team and our clients. We are now surrounded by multiple peers, with an extended influence across all regions, meaning we have like-minded individuals in every corner of the UK.”

Corporate finance manager Mike Williams has also been promoted to the role of associate director.

“Mike’s move to associate director is well deserved and further strengthens our goal to deliver a highly valuable and personalised service to our clients,” added Humble.

“I’m lucky to work within a dynamic team that always have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace and are able to adapt to a troublesome economy with ease and professionalism.”

The corporate finance team celebrated a record year in 2021, following completion of more than £100m worth of deals for businesses in the North East and beyond.
