Paul Graham joined Christie & Co's Corporate Medical team in 2014 and was appointed Director in 2017. Paul has spearheaded the brokerage side of the business, driving a number of significant high profile transactions across Scotland and the North East of England, most notably the sales of Caledonian Dental Care in Perth, a landmark deal of a 19-surgery dental practice with over 40,000 registered patients, and Avsan Holdings, a group of sixteen mixed income practices located across England & Scotland.
Paul Graham comments, “The UK dental market is a unique and dynamic sector which has seen significant growth and investor activity over recent years. Christie & Co has been at the forefront of this growth, working alongside a wide range of operators, banks and investors on a vast array of projects. In the last 12 months, we have sold and advised over £600m worth of practices. The dental landscape is positive, and I am excited to lead the team as we move into the next phase of our expansion in the sector.”
Paul will work closely with an expanding multi-disciplinary team of agents and advisers throughout the UK.
Joel Mannix, who joined the Edinburgh office as Business Agent at the end of 2018, will continue to work alongside Paul in growing Christie & Co’s presence in the Scottish dental market.
Jonathan Watson, Director, will lead the team’s activity across the Midlands and North, working closely with Business Agents Steve O’Connor and Olivia Allison based in the Birmingham and Manchester offices. The team in London has also expanded with the recent appointment of Tony Walker as Business Agent, who will work alongside Oliver Snowden, Director, and Steve Darbon, Associate Director.
Simon Hughes, Managing Director – Medical at Christie & Co, will continue to drive the company’s activity at the corporate end of the market and as well as growing Christie & Co’s activity in wider alternative and complimentary medical sectors.
Simon Hughes comments, “Since we launched into the practice sales market in 2013, our dental brokerage team is now established as a leading provider of quality services to practice owners of all types. As we continue our ambitious expansion in the sector, I’m delighted that Paul has agreed to lead our day to day dental brokerage business.”
