PWC’s business recovery services team has appointed four new partners across its London and regional practice, bringing its total number of partners to 51.
Mike Moffett has been appointed as a partner in the operational restructuring team, which collaborates with management teams to bring stability and drive rapid change to businesses seeking to optimise cash, cost and operational efficiency quickly. Moffett has advised clients in this area for over 15 years and he has most recently advised on some of the largest operational restructurings in the last few years across UK, Europe and the Middle East.
Victoria Tillbrook has been appointed as partner in the pensions credit advisory team, which offers corporates with significant defined benefit pension schemes and their trustees assistance in achieving a consensual and commercial outcome that benefits all stakeholders. Over the last ten years her expertise has included assisting trustees and companies through complex negotiations relating to scheme funding and corporate transactions.
Damien Ashford has been appointed as a partner in the government and public sector restructuring team with a specialism in healthcare. Ashford’s background in private and public sector restructuring and turnaround has meant he has helped organisations and their stakeholders through some of the most challenging situations. Ashford’s ole will be national with a base in the North, as part of the firm’s continued investment in the regional practice.
Richard Siddall has been appointed as a partner leading the debt and capital advisory team across the North, Midlands and Scotland. Siddall advises corporates looking to raise debt and capital to support growth and/or acquisitions as well as to refinance existing debt facilities. Siddall and the team have worked on 40 cases with £1.5bn of debt over the last year, closely with the management and shareholders of a number of private businesses as well as local private equity.
Ian Green, head of business recovery services, said: “Congratulations to all of our new partners. This year, we have increased the number of new partners, underlining our commitment to supporting our clients both in London and the regions. We’ve continued to see strong demand for our services this year, and this is reflected in the investment of new partners across a range of our teams.”
