Chief exec's death leaves IPA in shock

Insolvency Practitioners Association chief executive Nick Sabin has died suddenly while on holiday in France with friends

Sabin, who served the IPA for six years, has led the debt management industry
towards self regulation through the Debt Resolution Forum, with the IPA acting
as its watchdog.

He also oversaw the IPA’s monitoring of its members following the end of the
joint monitoring unit agreement with the ICAEW.

The IPA said Sabin’s death left a ‘large, difficult’ gap to fill in its
organisation, the Debt Resolution Forum and the IVA Forum.

‘Nick combined inspiration with perspiration and purpose,’ said IPA director
general Peter Joyce. ‘A ready ability to see the big picture with what seemed to
be inexhaustible energy and patience to achieve.’

Sabin, 58, led a detailed review of the debt and solution industry in 2005,
which led to the formation of the Debt Resolution Forum, to develop standards
among many of the leading debt management businesses. His funeral arrangements
have yet to be announced.
