Moses to head insolvency body
The effort to solve the Insolvency Practitioner Association's regulation headache will be lead by prominent insolvency specialist Maurice Moses, after he was appointed the body's new president.
The IPA is controversially considering regulation of its members from outside – possibly by the ICAEW – and meets this month to identify its ‘preferred option’.
Moses, who heads the business recovery section at Numerica, said: ‘It is a real privilege to be asked to lead the IPA at this time. Insolvency regulation is all about enhancing the reputation of the profession in the eyes of the general public.’ ‘This can only be achieved by a combination of our members’ professionalism and an efficient system of regulation that examines not just detail compliance but also the ‘qualitative’ aspects of our work.’ A final decision on regulation will be made on 23 July.
Moses has more than 20 years of experience spanning accountancy, UK and international banking advisory, insolvency, and restructuring.
