Robinson, a licensed insolvency practitioner of nearly 30 years’ standing, takes over as R3’s president from Gareth Hughes, a partner at Ernst & Young. His appointment, from 22 April, is for a fixed term of 12 months.

Robinson said: ‘It’s a great honour to be elected president of R3. My principal aim over the next 12 months is to carry on where Gareth left off in furthering R3’s reputation as the profession’s leading voice on insolvency and business turnaround issues.’

He added that dealing with individuals in financial difficulty will continue to be an area of ‘major challenge’ for the insolvency profession, while there are warning signs from economists that more businesses could be set to struggle in the near future.

As part of R3’s succession plans, Robinson spent the last year as its vice president, and the year before as deputy vice-president.

BDO’s Tony Supperstone steps up from deputy vice president to vice president, but a new deputy VP has yet to be confirmed.
