experience 

Prior to joining Benchmark International, Jack worked on the corporate finance team of an international bank based in London. Specifically, his role involved raising finance for and advising on cross-border M&A transactions with typical deal value in excess of $100 million. He wanted to join an independent firm that had its own individual approach and structure, but also had a global presence, leading him to move to Benchmark International. Understanding different viewpoints is an important part of his role and for successful transactions. He enjoys working with clients to prepare forecasts or financial models as required throughout the process and takes pride in delivering results that exceed our clients’ expectations.

passion

Mr. Redwood recognises that, for most business owners, deciding to embark on the process to sell their business is a huge decision to make. He feels proud knowing that he is part of the wider Benchmark International team that is so well equipped to assist throughout this important chapter in their lives.

achievement 

Outside of work, Jack's biggest achievement is training and competing as part of the Team GB Rowing Start Programme.

About

Mr. Redwood is a Transaction Leader, therefore is responsible for assisting clients on a daily basis throughout the transaction process, dealing with anything from running buyer/client meetings to analysing offers and handling deal negotiations. His focus is to take on the process-related work for our clients and to make the journey go as smooth as possible for them. He makes contact with potential acquirers to have detailed discussions about our on-market opportunities. He only puts the best potential acquirers in front of clients, and analyses all offers received in order to negotiate the best deal imaginable. He always tries to go the extra mile to add value wherever possible for the client, whether through creating a competitive bidding environment, finding and sourcing the best quality of buyers, or handling tricky buyer negotiations. He is motivated to deliver fantastic results that positively impact people’s lives.

Success

Jack would attribute his main success at Benchmark International to a fantastic cross-border deal that gave the client exactly what he wanted and more in terms of value, deal structure and future involvement.

conscientious

Jack took excellent care of the sale of Device Access UK to the IGES Group. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with someone so young and enthusiastic who gave the deal the upmost attention to detail, ensuring that the project moved as quickly as possible and responded in a lightning fast time to all enquiries along the way during and outside of office hours. One of the most impressive skills Jack has is the maturity to listen hard and absorb information. Jack has an outstanding future ahead of him and I would wholeheartedly recommend him and Benchmark International for help in selling your business
