So farewell Dan Dunkley, The Sunday Times deals reporter who Betaville has had the pleasure of working with at several different publications.

Some of Dan's memorable M&A scoops include revealing: the detail of Mediclinic's bid £1.3 billion bid for Spire Healthcare; Aveva's merger Schneider Electric; and unveiling Li Ka Shing's attempt to buy O2 from Telefonica for £9 billion.

I have pasted the links to Dan's scoops below:

Dan's heading off to New Zealand for a while and joining the motley crew of global freelance hacks looking for work (Betaville is also a member).

But don't expect the intrepid reporter to hang up his M&A reporting boots altogether. And you never know, perhaps one of Dunkley's M&A scoops will one day make an appearance on Betaville.....
