Matthew Melhuish, the former CEO of publicly listed marketing services company Enero, has joined PCB Partners in Australia as a Board Advisor.
The marketing industry veteran brings over three decades of experience working across the UK, Europe, US and Australia to the firm. At PCB Partners, he will focus on supporting the identification of targets, providing buy-side and sell-side advisory services, delivering transaction support and bringing together entrepreneurs and investors.
PCB Partners was founded in 2018 by Ben Doltis and Tim Farazmand, after they met during the process of Doltis selling his first consulting business. Farazmand was Managing Director at LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Bank – and although Doltis decided not to sell his firm in 2013 to LDC, the duo kept contact and teamed up to launch their M&A advisory. PCB Partners specialises in the technology and business services sectors, with a focus on the mid-market segment.
As an entrepreneur, Melhuish founded BMF, an Australian creative agency which grew to 250 employees. After selling BMF to Enero, he became CEO of the group. In the role, he led the firm’s buy-and-build strategy and more recently the successful turnaround of the services business.
Melhuish concluded his Enero role in this year, and also serves as a Board Director of coffee company Campos. He also acts as an independent consultant to various businesses in the football, footwear and private wealth management sectors.
Commenting on his role at PCB Partners, Melhuish said: PCB Partner’s entrepreneurial spirit and empathy for the entrepreneurial journey really sets them apart from others in this space. I’m excited to be joining them and look forward to bringing their very different approach to the Australian market.”
The appointment comes shortly after PCB Partners bolstered its team in India with Animesh Parihar, and in the UK with PwC veterans Julian Brown and Peter Jacobs.
