Lumina Capital Advisers Limited, a Dubai-headquartered, specialist mid-market M&A firm, has announced the strategic appointment of John Martin St.Valery to the board to support the firm’s services for UK-inbound transactions. St. Valery’s addition to the board follows the appointment of Executive Chairman Rick Pudner, ex-Emirates NBD Group CEO, in May 2018.
“John’s appointment significantly strengthens our linkage with trade organizations between the UK and the Middle East through the British Business Group, Department of International Trade, UK Export Finance and other organizations. I am delighted to welcome John to the board and work with him through this key phase in our growth,” said Pudner.
St.Valery said: “These trade relations between the UK and the Middle East are of key importance to the future of UK companies. I am excited about working with the team at Lumina to further support our UK members and clients in this key strategic area.”
