Max Perry ACA

Max Perry ACA

Senior Manager

After achieving a Masters in Globalisation, Max researched acquisition opportunities in Australia for a FTSE 250 Plc, before joining Deloitte’s Manchester practice and gaining an ACA qualification. Max worked in Audit and Advisory with a wide range of companies from small Owner Managed Businesses to large PLCs.
 

Away from work, Max spends his time looking for his lost golf balls in spiky hedges, successfully butchering new recipes and trying to avoid the Hull City score lest it put him in a bad mood. After a 6 year absence from cricket, he’s also recently rediscovered his love for single-figure scores and dropped catches.

“We’re grateful to Max for his hard work and persistence in bringing this process to a successful conclusion. His expertise was invaluable throughout the process, but particularly in the latter stages of the deal." Nigel Pincher of Truflow

Adam Cottam ACA

Adam Cottam ACA

Corporate Finance Manager

Adam has a degree in Mathematics from Durham, and is ACA qualified. He spent 11 years prior to Camlee working for an advisory firm specialising in the motor retail sector, performing a number of roles.  Directly prior to joining Camlee, he managed transactions in the corporate finance department, overseeing five deals directly in only his second year.
 
Outside of work, Adam enjoys cooking (and eating), weight training, a round of golf and playing football.  A keen follower of all sports, Adam is in the desperately unfortunate position of being a Blackburn Rovers supporter, attending games whenever he gets chance.

“Among all people I have ever worked with, Adam is one of the best. He is one of the most dedicated professionals I have worked with, he is organized and always ready to put all his energy into getting the job done. I strongly recommend working with him because he is ambitious and professional.” Jay Varsani, Motor Trader Award winner
