Nik Askaroff has been named the South East’s top dealmaker for an amazing third year in a row.

Nik scooped his latest award at Insider’s 11th annual South East Dealmakers Awards 2017 dinner at the Copthorne Effingham Hotel, near Gatwick.

The judges described Nik as “the outstanding and most influential dealmaker in the region,” adding, “he not only consistently wins new business and gets results for his clients but also contributes hugely to the business and professional organisations in the South East.”

On a tumultuous night for EMC, we also featured in three other categories at the awards – Deal of the Year, Corporate Finance Team of the Year and Corporate Finance Advisor of the Year (Michael Pay).

It rounded off a tremendous 12 months for EMC which saw us complete a record 17 deals in 2016, many of them coming after the June Brexit vote which was expected to herald a big fall-off in M&A activity.

Nik said: “Obviously I am personally delighted to have completed a hat-trick of wins at the Insider awards which are widely seen as the ‘Oscars’ of the dealmaking industry. But I was equally thrilled that the outstanding work of our whole team was also given due recognition.

“I am very lucky to be surrounded by a body of very dedicated, highly experienced people who have helped us and our clients to achieve so much over the last year.”
