The UK’s leading telephone answering and outsourced switchboard specialist, Moneypenny, has hired an M&A and Strategy Director as it targets new acquisition opportunities.

The business, which recently moved to a bespoke headquarters, has appointed Mark Finlay from multi-national professional services firm Ernst & Young.

Finlay has 11 years’ experience in corporate finance, including eight years at EY having spent time in the Manchester and Sydney offices, as well as three years at Pricewaterhousecoopers.

In his role, he will identify, transact and integrate value enhancing acquisitions in support of the company’s strategy to diversify the services it currently provides its clients and consolidate its market leading position in the telephone answering sector both in the UK and the US.

Mark said: “Moneypenny has ambitious plans to double the size of the business in the next three years and acquisitions will form a vital part of this strategy. The company already has a fantastic and long-established reputation for providing exceptional service levels for their clients and we are continually looking at ways in which we can enhance this.”

Following the completion of its new headquarters, Moneypenny is entering an exciting period of growth. The appointment of an M&A and Strategy Director is the latest move the company has made to strengthen its management team following the appointment Ceri Henfrey as Head of Operations and Martin King as Head of IT.

Moneypenny answers in excess of 10 million calls a year either on an overflow or fully outsourced basis for both small and large businesses. Founded in 2000, the company currently employs over 500 people with plans to double this within the next few years and has offices in the UK, US and New Zealand.
