Business development director with LSE experience to drive corporate growth at Hawksford


Hawksford has appointed a corporate business development director with over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry, most recently focussing on clients within the corporate finance and equity capital markets arenas.

Danny Curran (pictured), who will be based in the UK, will be responsible for securing and developing new business in Hawksford’s corporate services division by identifying and evaluating new client and market opportunities in the UK, Europe and Asia. He will work closely and collaboratively with the corporate services team on the strategic development of the offering. 
Before joining Hawksford, Curran worked at Equiniti (a FTSE250 financial services provider) heading up their boardroom business development team. Danny provided support and guidance to some of the most high profile flotations listing on the London Stock Exchange, whilst leading successful business development campaigns to attract blue chip clients.
‘As a results driven individual, I’m looking forward to expanding the current portfolio and services offering at Hawksford. My industry expertise, particularly within the corporate finance and equity markets, will help build on the current impressive client base and support Hawksford’s strategic growth plans,’ says Curran.
‘Hawksford’s independence, entrepreneurial attitude and ambition has really impressed me. The direction the business is taking is very exciting and I am relishing being part of the next stage in its journey.’
Michel van Leeuwen, CEO of Hawksford, says: “Danny is an excellent addition to the corporate services team. With his extensive background in business development and experience advising LSX listed companies, he will be able to drive the generation of new business with a core focus on our key markets of UK, Europe and Asia.”
