We are delighted to announce the appointment of experienced banking and advisory specialist, Martyn Shakespear, as our new Head of Banking & Finance.

Martyn joins us with over 40 years’ experience of providing funding advice to SMEs and corporates.

When asked about Martyn’s appointment and what it will mean to Streets and their clients, the firm’s Chairman, Paul Tutin, said: “We are especially pleased to welcome Martyn to the firm. For a number of years we have provided clients with funding advice and we are keen to ensure we respond to the growing need for this by recruiting a dedicated specialist.

In particular Martyn is experienced in raising finance, including working capital solutions, invoice finance and asset-based lending, commercial loans and mortgages, together with foreign exchange strategies.

“This is a significant appointment for us as we pride ourselves on being more than just accountants. The specialist expertise that he brings will prove invaluable for our clients and colleagues, as clients are increasingly looking at their funding arrangements as we emerge from the pandemic.”

In recent times I have got to know a number of the partners, staff and clients and cannot wait to build the banking and finance service offering across the whole of practice as I am passionate about the value this will bring.”

In his new role Martyn will provide banking and funding advisory services on a firm wide basis, covering all 17 of our offices throughout the Midlands, East of England, Yorkshire, London and the South East.
