“I work collaboratively with clients to make the complex simple”

Ashok Thomas is a Corporate Finance Director. Based in our Belfast office he works with clients to achieve successful business outcomes, no matter how challenging they are. Whether its clients who are looking to acquire or sell their business, assisting with re-organisation or transformational projects, feasibility studies on large projects, attending mediations for corporate financial dispute resolution or commercial appraisals for governmental agencies.

As a Corporate Finance Director, he leads our Corporate Finance team across the island of Ireland. Providing support and guidance to the team as they undertake new projects, ensuring that high quality project delivery is the priority for each and every team member. Ashok works very closely with other teams across our growing Group including Business Advisory Services, Virtual Finance, Audit and Tax to build strong internal relationships and provide a better quality of service to our clients.

Amazing service is our priority

“One of the most important aspects of working in Corporate Finance is closely collaborating with the team and clients as we strive together towards a shared objective. A solid collaboration relies on a strong foundation of trust and effective communication.

We frequently collaborate across functions throughout the entire organisation, enabling us to provide wide ranging service to our clients. As their trusted advisor, we support them in all areas of their business, no matter how complex or challenging they may be.

Creating bespoke solutions

“The aspect of work that I enjoy the most is to bring actionable solutions to the table. Part of my role is to leverage my knowledge and experience as well as data-driven insights to drive growth and create value for my clients.

Gold standard of service

“Our aim is to consistently deliver the gold standard of service to our clients. This involves exceeding expectations by fulfilling our commitments and, whenever possible, going the extra mile. Regardless of the client’s needs, it is important to me that we successfully complete the job, add value, and leave the client satisfied with both the service and the outcome of our work.

That process starts with truly getting to know our clients, their businesses, what they’re trying to achieve and the part that we can play. If we don’t truly know them then how can we provide a service that goes above and beyond? I want the best for my clients so I will always go above and beyond and help them to make the right decisions that will help them to achieve their goals.”
