Insolvency and business recovery expert Andy Wood has joined Wilson Field to strengthen its nine-strong team of insolvency practitioners and 90 staff.
Andy, who was previously employed at The P&A Partnership for 17 years as a licence holder and appointment taker and has been an insolvency specialist for 23 years, joins as an associate director.
He brings to Sheffield-based Wilson Field a wealth of experience advising corporate entities of all sizes from small owner-managed businesses to large companies with multi-million pound turnovers.
Andy said: “I have principally been involved with corporate restructuring and insolvency work since 2003. I believe the key to success is treating all businesses, large or small, equally and with the same respect.
“Empathy is one of my strengths and I like to ensure time is taken to understand how a business operates and what are the root causes of the issues faced. Relationships and trust are key.
“I always like to start at the point – can this company and/or the business be saved? This is the ideal solution for interested parties, including the creditors who are owed money by the business.”
Andy served on the R3 regional committee for Yorkshire and Humberside, the trade association for insolvency practitioners, for more than 10 years until stepping down in 2011. He served as Regional Chairman from 2008 to 2010.
He has operated principally in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the North Midlands through referrals from accountants, solicitors and banks and finance houses as well as direct contact from business owners.
Nick Wilson, managing director of Wilson Field, said: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the team and look forward to his support in helping us take the company to the next level.”
Andy added: “Wilson Field is a young, evolving team which is embracing change and is dedicated to preserving businesses which in turn gives optimum results for all concerned – clients, creditors and employees. Part of my remit will be to develop that team further.
“I look forward to contributing to the ongoing business progression at Wilson Field.”
