I am a licensed insolvency practitioner with almost 20 years of experience in providing strategic level financial advice to corporates and their stakeholders on all forms of corporate insolvency. I have built a reputation for quickly developing an excellent commercial understanding of a situation, allowing me to identify what is required to add value.

As a director in our Yorkshire and North East advisory team, I specialise in restructuring and debt advisory. I'm also a member of our asset based lending (ABL) advisory team. I have a deep understanding of ABL facilities and the funders within the sector and work with management teams to advise on working capital management and optimising ABL facility usage.

One of my specialisms is advising management teams on funding structures. I have led a range of refinancing exercises leading to improved funding structures and additional funds for businesses. I am enthusiastic about working with management teams and their stakeholders in challenging situations to align their business with the right funding solution. In many cases, this involves restructuring the business to provide positive trading prospects.

Lenders regularly engage me to advise on opportunities and challenges they face with clients. Through a refinance process or where additional funds are requested, I provide comfort to lenders through pre-lend reviews and bespoke assignments such as cost-saving evaluations.

When not at work or spending time with my family, I can usually be found either on the golf course or playing rugby. I am also a keen Leeds United fan.
