Kroll star Pepper jumps ship for Hilco

Kroll partner Andrew Pepper takes up COO role at Hilco

One of Kroll’s most high-profile partners, Andrew Pepper, has left the
restructurers to join Hilco UK as chief operating officer.

Pepper,
interviewed
by Accountancy Age eighteen months ago
, has worked on some of the
highest profile business insolvencies in recent years, including roles at
Allders, Unwins, Slug and Lettuce chain SFI, Red Letter Days and MVC.

He also takes up the role of CEO of Hilco’s newly created arm Hilco
Commercial.

The group invests in distressed retail business across Europe and
restructures then sells them. Purchases have included stores from Ciro Citterio
and Somerfield.

Pepper will look for purchases outside of the retail space.

‘This is an exciting time for the firm and I look forward to working with the
team as it grows its investments across Europe beyond the retail sector,’ said
Pepper.

Paul McGowan, chief executive of Hilco UK, said, ‘Andrew Pepper has an
excellent reputation in the restructuring industry and, having worked with him
several times over the last few years, I know he will be a valuable addition to
our retail group as well as a first class Chief Executive of the new non-retail
investment business.’
