I am an experienced restructuring professional, providing advice to trustees of defined benefit pension schemes on the covenant provided by the scheme’s sponsoring employers and on the implications to schemes from group restructurings. I also advise mid-market and SME businesses, and their key stakeholders, who are experiencing distress.

I am both ACA and JIEB qualified and have over 14 years' experience working with businesses in different sectors who are experiencing cash flow difficulties, under-performance issues or looking to refinance.

My extensive experiences include assisting trustees in negotiations with sponsoring employers, advising both the trustees and Pension Protection Fund (PPF) on the on-going support and restructuring of a long-standing employer, acting on the administration of Covpress Limited that achieved the sale of the business to protect approximately 750 jobs and saw the pension scheme transfer to the purchaser of the business and many other distressed scenarios.

When not providing pragmatic advice to stakeholders of distressed businesses, I enjoy playing golf, watching Formula 1 and football, coaching my son’s football team and generally spending time with my young family.
