Phillip Travis  

Phil became a partner at TMG in 1997 after joining the practice in 1995 from KPMG's Manchester office.

Phil has a substantial connector base from which he maintains an up to date awareness of funders’ appetite for transactions.   In addition he has developed a successful policy of deal origination activity where quality M&A opportunities are sourced for clients directly; such is the success that this has become a prime area of focus for the whole practice.

Phil has recently advised on a number of high profile transactions in the building products and services industries and continues to provide strategic advice to these clients.
