BAKER TILLY’S insolvency partner David Hudson is leaving the firm.
Hudson, who has worked on administrations such as Buddha Bar and Southampton Leisure, joined the business two years ago from Begbies Traynor.
He will leave Baker Tilly next year to set up a fund which will invest in businesses.
“The opportunity of setting up a fund, which will invest in various business and sectors, presents a very different opportunity from my career so far in insolvency,” he said.
“However, the experience I have built up thus far, particularly during my time at Baker Tilly, has been invaluable. The team is great, hardworking and always supportive and I am privileged to have worked alongside them and continue to do so until my departure.”
Hudson joined Taylor Gotham & Fry in 1991 which was acquired by Begbies Traynor. He took up a partner role at Baker Tilly in the latter half of 2009 in its restructuring and recovery practice.
He claimed if he was to return to insolvency he would rejoin Baker Tilly.
The head of division Tracey Callaghan has said the firm is currently seeking a successor.
