FINANCE advisory specialists Hutcheon Mearns have appointed Peter Stuart as Non-Executive Adviser, as part of ambitious plans to accelerate the company’s growth nationwide.
Peter draws upon over 40 years of experience in the international oil and gas industry, having worked in several operational roles and latterly focussing on Mergers and Acquisitions – both in the UK and overseas.
Commenting on his new position, Peter said: “Hutcheon Mearns is an ambitious company with a compelling reputation in its field. Since its inception six years ago, the team have continually tailored their service offering to address the key concerns of the industry and have adapted to meet changing market demands.
“I’m looking forward to joining this dynamic team and working with them to help to meet the goals and the needs of their clients.”
For the past 14 years, Peter has been a member of the International team with oil and gas sector private equity firm SCF Partners, which has included spells as acting CEO of portfolio businesses. He is currently an Operating Partner with the company, and also sits as a non-exec director of their Score Group investment.
Peter has also been a board member of Montrose Port Authority for six years, where he is currently serving as Chairman. In addition, he is also the Chief Executive of Montrose Football Club.
Managing Director, Craig Hutcheon, added: “Peter brings a high level of international business experience to the role thanks to his energy sector experience.
“We’re delighted that he will be joining us as we look to further expand our offering across the UK and internationally this year.
“We have worked on M&A transactions across multiple jurisdictions globally and have completed more interim projects and placements out with our home city than any year since founding the company. Peter’s international and growth-oriented pedigree will be instrumental to our long-term strategy.”
Hutcheon Mearns’ team of finance specialists provide people and business advisory services – from business strategy and M&A advice to finance resource solutions – on a permanent or interim basis.
The news follows announcements earlier in 2021, which saw Hutcheon Mearns unveil plans for national growth as well as a new corporate brand identity.
