Trillium Partners Expands Senior Team With Appointment Of Andrew Zelouf

We are delighted to announce that Andrew Zelouf has joined the firm as a Director, where he will provide strategic advisory services to clients with regard to mergers, acquisitions and disposals and debt and equity capital raising.

Most recently, Andrew was Group Head of Corporate Finance at Guardian Media Group plc, one of the UK’s leading media groups, where he worked for eight years. He was involved in most of GMG’s major acquisitions and disposals during that time and worked closely with GMG’s private equity and other partners in the creation and development of its joint venture interests. He has a strong understanding of digital businesses and witnessed the transformation of Trader Media Group, GMG’s most financially successful investment, from a largely offline business to an overwhelmingly digitally focused group.  He was also responsible for the development of GMG’s capital structure and concluded a number of debt fundraisings. Andrew also was part of the creation and continuing management of a £200 million investment fund, designed to diversify GMG’s portfolio, which significantly outperformed benchmarks.

Prior to that, Andrew spent more than five years in investment banking at Deutsche Bank, where he was responsible for the execution of UK and cross-border transactions in a range of sectors. Andrew qualified as a solicitor during five years with Lovell White Durrant (now Hogan Lovells) and worked on a variety of public and private transactions in its Corporate department. He has an LLB from King’s College, London.

Philip Mastriforte, Co-Founder of Trillium, commented:
“We are delighted to have found someone with Andrew’s corporate advisory skills and track record and deep understanding of the Media sector to join our team. Having worked with Andrew before, I am confident he will make a great impact with our clients, strengthen our execution capabilities and make a handsome contribution to the wider development of the firm.”

Andrew Zelouf added:
“Trillium has established a great reputation for unconflicted corporate advice in relation to mergers, acquisitions, disposals, institutional fund raisings and restructurings, predominantly in the Media sector. After several years on the client side at Guardian Media Group, I understand the benefits of the independent corporate finance advisory model and am looking forward to helping my new colleagues build the firm.”
