Montpelier enters turnaround market with Armitage Jones purchase

Montpelier aims for turnaround market with Armitage Jones acquisition

Acquisitive accountancy firm
Montpelier
has announced a move into the turnaround market with the purchase of Armitage
Jones.

Montpelier has set up Montpelier Business Reorganisation, which will
incorporate the Yorkshire acquisition – managed by its partner Chris Jones, Tony
Armitage and Simon Padgett.

The trio provides remedial advice at board level to struggling businesses. It
has a team of eight staff and generated seven-figure levels of fee income in its
first full year of operating.

The team will relocate to Montpelier’s existing Leeds office which will
become the new company’s first UK location.

Montpelier founder Watkin Gittins said: “We have been looking for the right
expertise to bring a business restructuring and reorganisation offering to our
clients, and we have been impressed by the rapid growth of Armitage Jones into a
formidable player in the market in less than two years.

“This move isn’t a plain turnaround or insolvency launch, it fulfils the
demands for a new take on this market which is necessary due to the
unprecedented economic changes arising from the banking crisis.”
