Steven Harper 

Founder & Managing Director

Steve spent over a decade in the corporate trenches, where he worked on over 100 M&A and restructuring transactions for a listed financial services group in South Africa. During this time he gained in-depth buy-side transaction experience (including business case development, valuations, due diligence, deal structuring and transaction agreements)... and also developed a passion for financial modelling!

In 2015, Steve moved his family to the countryside and started his own freelance advisory business. He now focuses on financial modelling, M&A advisory and growth projects.

Details of Steve's experience can be seen by following the link below:
