A force in the industrials M&A realm, Chrisanne Corbett has worked on deals such as Polypipe Group plc’s (LON: PLP) purchase of Nuaire and Dexter Axle’s acquisition of Al-ko Axis Inc.’s assets.

“Most of my deals have gone strategic,” Corbett says. As for private equity, the “volume of deals in the second half of 2015 has been for add-ons.” A few private equity firms considered buying Nuaire, which makes and designs ventilation systems, but the deal ultimately went to Yorkshire, U.K.-based plastic pipe manufacturer Polypipe in a transaction that closed in August 2015.
