Our Panel

Adara Partners crosses competitive boundaries and brings together some of the most senior leaders in the corporate advisory industry who jointly lead engagements as Adara Panel Members. Undiluted access to these individuals working collaboratively on a mandate is not otherwise available in the market.

Collectively our Panel Members have advised over 90% of the ASX 100 and have worked on many of the largest and most transformative transactions in Australia’s corporate history.

The Panel Members are supported by an experienced team of corporate advisory professionals.
