Going for Gold – Benchmark International Achieves Medal Worthy Positions on Pro-Manchester’s ‘Most Active Advisers’ List

It may be the bleak midwinter for some, although for others it marks a four year long wait for the Winter Olympics which, for 2018, is being held in PyeongChang, South Korea, between the 9th February and 25th February.

It just so happens that this has coincided with the annual Corporate Finance Review for 2017, presented by Pro-Manchester, the largest business development organisation in the North West that represents business communities across the region, in association with Experian MarketIQ – a UK business database provider.

The review’s aim is to give insight into Manchester’s corporate finance market, examining the deals that Manchester-based advisers have worked on. This has shown that Benchmark International is giving Team GB a run for its money with it gaining all three medal table positions in the (cool) runnings for Manchester’s ‘Most Active Financial Adviser’ of 2017.

In gold place was Peter Kelly, who advised on a remarkable 25 deals in 2017. In second place, and gaining the silver medal, was Nick Hulme; and in joint third place was Roger Forshaw, who brought in the bronze for Benchmark International.

Benchmark International Completes Sale of Fast of Florida, Inc to Southern Air & Heat Holdings

International M&A specialist, Benchmark International, has successfully negotiated the sale of its client, FAST of Florida, Inc. (“FAST”) to Southern Air & Heat (“Southern HVAC”), a portfolio company of MSouth Equity Partners, an Atlanta-based private equity firm.

Based in Clearwater, Florida, FAST is a leading provider of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), plumbing and electrical sales, installation, and maintenance services to the residential and commercial markets. In 1972, the company was established as a small air conditioning repair shop by Eddie Vaughan. Eddie’s wife, Melissa, joined the company in the early 1980’s, assisting with administrative duties and bookkeeping. As the company grew, FAST evolved to expand its service offerings in order to remain competitive and add additional revenue streams. In 2005, Mr. Vaughan passed away after a long illness, and Melissa assumed ownership of the business. Under Mrs. Vaughan’s leadership, FAST has continued to experience tremendous growth while continuing to offer the same level of quality service the company was built upon. Today, the company employs nearly 50 people serving Pinellas County, Florida and the surrounding markets.
