Business and finance adviser Grant Thornton is building on its Midland recovery and reorganisation business with the recruitment of four new members to the team.
Paul Addison, director, joins from Grant Thornton’s Cambridge office with significant experience in restructuring and advisory work including a 19-month secondment with HSBC; Rob Dawes, associate director, joins from Grant Thornton in Melbourne, where he spent two years on secondment in an advisory role after working with PwC and KPMG; James Lewin, assistant manager, joins from Cooper Parry in the East Midlands and Sunil Prabhaker, executive, joins from Ernst & Young in Manchester.
David Bennett, Birmingham-based restructuring partner, said: “As a result of the growth of Grant Thornton’s R & R practice in the Midlands and market demands, we have needed to invest in recruiting additional specialist restructuring professionals to add to the team’s skill base.
“In addition to traditional recovery work we are seeing an increasing demand from clients for wider advisory services including financial and operational restructuring and accelerated mergers and acquisitions. Several of the team have corporate finance backgrounds, which brings an added dimension to our work with both companies and finance providers.”
Grant Thornton’s recovery and reorganisation team in the Midlands is currently 14 strong, and is part of one of the largest dedicated teams in the UK, with 54 partners and directors and over 600 staff.
