One of the north-east’s top deal makers will address the future of the region’s mergers and acquisitions market at a P&J event next month.
Mike Beveridge, managing director of Simmons Energy, will take one of the top spots at the paper’s M&A business breakfast, sponsored by Deloitte on February 20.
The event, at the Chester hotel, will explore whether a renewed optimism in oil and gas could be just the ticket to driving M&A activity forward in 2020.

Over the years Mr Beveridge has acted as lead adviser on multiple buy side, sale side and finance-raising transactions for a diverse range of clients across the entire spectrum of the energy services industry.
