Anya graduated from Dublin City University in 2004 with a first class honours degree in International Business, and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2008.

Anya joined Deloitte Corporate Finance in 2004, and spent 7 years working as part of the M&A advisory team, primarily focused on acquisitions and disposals in the mid-market sector. While with Deloitte Anya also advised on a number of large equity and debt raisings, restructurings, strategic and financial reviews. Her clients included Irish and international companies operating across a range of industry sectors and with a particular focus on healthcare and support services.

Anya joined Cavendish in 2011, and has since worked on a number of disposal and capital raising transactions. Within her role this has included detailed business and industry analysis, financial modelling, valuations, the preparation of information memoranda and overall deal management.

Anya became a Partner at Cavendish in October 2014.

‘Cavendish took on the challenge of selling Robert Dyas against the background of a very difficult environment for retailers in general caused by the current economic downturn. However, they were undaunted by this and found a buyer that allowed existing shareholders to exit and for the Robert Dyas business to have a new owner who wants to expand and develop the business.’
