Leading Yorkshire accountancy firm BHP has scooped five accolades at the South Yorkshire Dealmakers Awards 2022, including Dealmaker of the Year.

The firm’s Corporate Finance team was named Corporate Finance Advisory Firm of the Year for the second year running.

BHP won the Mid-Market Deal of the Year for its part in the Acquisition of 3G Truck and Trailer Parts, and the team also triumphed in the Deal of the Year (£10m+) category with the acquisition of Hydro-X by Marlowe.

Partner Don Gray was named Dealmaker of the Year, while BHP Consultant David Forrest was recognised for his 30+ years’ experience in the industry and presented with the Lifetime Achievement award.

BHP’s Joint Managing Partner Hamish Morrison said: “It was an amazing night for our Corporate Finance team at the Dealmakers Awards and we’re delighted to have won across five categories.

“It’s a testament to the quality of work that the team delivers day in day out for our clients, and the awards highlight their dedication to carrying out incredible industry-leading work.

“I am so pleased to see both Don and David being recognised for their individual contributions. Their commitment to the Corporate Finance team over the years has been exceptional. It was fantastic to see David winning the special Lifetime Achievement award; David has been a colleague for many years, and I know how much commitment he has put into his time at BHP and his career, which has spanned over 30 years.

“As Joint Managing Partner with Lisa Leighton, we could not be prouder of Team BHP. We have an outstanding firm with a brilliant group of hard-working people, which continues to grow and expand.

“This achievement would not have been possible without the help of our Translink Corporate Finance colleagues around the world. Since joining and becoming a shareholder in Translink we have gained, in our opinion, an unrivalled ability to identify and have high quality dialogue with key decision makers at potential purchasers wherever they’re located in the world”
