Benchmark International is delighted to announce that it has won Mid-Market Corporate Finance Team of the Year at the Insider Media North West Dealmakers Awards 2023.

The event celebrated the achievements of the North West's top corporate financiers, accountants, bankers, funders, lawyers and M&A professionals. It was held last night at Manchester Central and compered by Russell Kane.

The judges said Benchmark really was the benchmark and stood out with 46 deals. They said it was clear that the firm has long-term partnerships with its clients.

The submission saw Benchmark International prove itself through transactions such as the sale of James Hamilton Group Limited to Zeus Packaging Limited and the sale of Gottlieb Packaging Materials Limited to MacFarlane Group plc, amongst others. An unprecedented year for the team, it has achieved several growth records in comparison with previous review periods.

Benchmark International also highlighted what makes it stand out from the crowd, from the fully qualified team, including ICAEW-qualified directors and its amazing reputation, which includes excellent feedback from clients.

Nick Hulme, Managing Director at Benchmark International Manchester, said this about winning the award: “We have such a fantastic team here in Manchester, where everyone is professional and driven. This massive award gives the Manchester Transactions Team the recognition they deserve. My amazing Transaction Directors, Roger Forshaw & Jim Robinson, my Transaction Leaders and the whole team – well done guys!

“But this award is for everyone, from the shareholders to Origination & Central, each of whom deliver for us year after year.

“So it’s time for us all to celebrate!”
