GRANT Thornton UK LLP has named Trefor Griffith as the new head of the firm's food and beverage division. The company said the new appointment has been made in response to the increasing demand the sector has seen for M&A, restructuring, profit improvement and other professional advice as a result of increasing cost and consumer pressures. A corporate finance specialist, Griffith has extensive experience across the F&B sector, particularly within mergers and acquisitions, company sales, MBOs and refinancings. In his new role, Trefor will head up a nationwide team including around 20 partners and directors with specialist experience in the industry.
