JDC opens new office and strengthens ties with the Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge business communities

JDC Corporate Finance, the leading independent corporate finance and advisory business in the East of England, is pleased to announce the official opening of its new office near Chelmsford. Located within 15 miles of Stansted Airport, Bishops Stortford and Chelmsford, it is the company’s second office in the region.

The expansion was driven by the increase in deal activity JDC has been experiencing in Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire and the company’s belief that its clients want their advisers to be part of the local business community.

Opening the new office, Jon Dodge, Managing Director of JDC Corporate Finance, said:

“It’s my pleasure to open our new office which represents the latest milestone in our growth strategy. Over the last four years we have expanded our team from seven to fifteen professionals and our own growth is testament to the quality of our people and as a result of recommendation to other companies by a growing list of satisfied clients who have placed their trust in us.

Christian Schosland, a director of JDC Corporate Finance said:

“We were encouraged to open the office by the local business community and we have been delighted by their support. We are excited by the prospect of working with some of the first class businesses that are nearby.”

Chris Adlam, a director of JDC Corporate Finance added:

“The new office increases our capacity to work collaboratively with banks, funders and advisers across Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire and strengthens our ties with many of the businesses that are based here. We can also give our clients the opportunity to meet us in a professional and confidential environment, which they value highly.”
