Mike Norrie is retiring after almost fifty years in the accountancy profession

Castle Corporate Finance - Our window on the world.

Since founding Castle Corporate Finance in 2007, Mike has been instrumental in shaping and growing the business we see today. Mike leaves after one of Castle’s most successful years of deal completions and will remain as the company Chairman. The business will continue to be led by directors and owners, Stuart Stepney and Victoria Ansell.

During his award-winning career as a corporate finance specialist, Mike has led on many of the region’s notable deals and is a trusted adviser to a range of private companies.

Stuart said: “While we are undoubtedly sad to see Mike officially step back, his legacy is core to the Castle business. Mike embodies our values – a driven, dedicated, insightful and charismatic individual whose advice and support has helped propel us to our present position in the industry.

We wish Mike the best for the future and of course look forward to celebrating together!”

Mike now has more time to enjoy his interests outside of corporate finance including fly fishing, fine dining and following rugby and cricket, along with spending time with his grandchildren.
