Harsh Maheshwari named new Global Head of Corporate Finance
The appointment supports the network’s strategy to create a truly global corporate finance capability
Baker Tilly International has announced the appointment of Harsh Maheshwari as the Global Head of Corporate Finance for the network. Based in Singapore, Harsh has been with the network for nearly four years, working with the Asia Pacific region’s leadership in the role of Regional Director.
In a new role for the network, Harsh will provide a range of support for the network’s advisory services in line with its global strategy, primarily focusing on corporate finance. Working alongside regional leaders, Harsh will focus on continuing to build the network’s advisory capabilities as well as grow the corporate finance service line, business development and building relationships with private equity firms / strategic buyers to identify new deal opportunities.
Harsh is a qualified Chartered Accountant and has a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Delhi University. His work experience includes leading the corporate finance practice of a Top 10 accounting firm in Singapore, as well as over a decade working in the advisory service line within leading accounting firms in India and Thailand.
Speaking on the appointment, Francesca Lagerberg, CEO of Baker Tilly International said: “Although globally transactional activity in 2022 dipped, after a record previous year, due to global macro-economic and political uncertainties, our advisory teams remained busier than ever, offering clients a powerful blend of global reach and local understanding across a range of sectors and disciplines. The next 12 months will likely produce similar challenges alongside plenty of opportunities. I am confident that Harsh is the right person to lead our efforts to capitalise on that potential.”
Harsh added: “I am excited to be taking on this role at such an important time in the implementation of our network strategy and showcasing our strong advisory capabilities to our clients, both new and old. Our corporate finance and advisory teams in many of the 148 territories in which Baker Tilly International operates are well placed to offer services to a wide mix of clients – large and small – as they face a variety of financing and transactional issues.”
