RSM Tenon partner to become IPA president

Mark Sands takes deputy vice-president role at Insolvency Practitioners Association, and will serve as president in 2015

RSM TENON’S head of personal insolvency Mark Sands has been appointed deputy vice president at the Insolvency Practitioners Association.

The move means that Sands (pictured) will serve as president for one year in 2015/2016 before sitting on the licencing body for insolvency practitioners’ council for a further two years.

Sands qualified as a practitioner in 1991 and before serving at RSM, he worked at KPMG for nearly 20 years, joining in 1989. Prior to that, he spent three years in corporate recovery at Grant Thornton.

Sands said: “At RSM Tenon we are always keen to invest in our people. For my part, the IPA has played an integral role in the development of my career, so I am honoured to devote some of my time to this important membership body.

“Over the past five years, the number of people choosing to use the IPA for their licensing has increased in an environment where the number of insolvency practitioners (IPs) has remained fairly static. I look forward to helping the IPA build on its success.”

IPA CEO David Kerr added: “Mark has long been a contributor to the IPA, through its various committees and council, and council has chosen an experienced practitioner who will serve the association well over the next three years and beyond.”
