Insolvency Practitioner Association director general Peter Joyce retires after seven years at the licensor

Peter Joyce, an insolvency regulation expert, is retiring from licensor
Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) as its director general.

Joyce, who advised the IPA on policy and legislative matters, started out his
career in the official receivers office (OR). He latterly became head of the OR
offices for Croydon, Guildford, Kingston-upon-Thames and Tunbridge Wells.

A certified accountant Joyce later took on the chief executive role at the
Insolvency Service in the early 1990s.

During his 50-year career he was pivotal in the creation of the International
Association of Insolvency Regulators, and became its first chairman. At the
request of the World Bank he chaired its international working group which
sought to develop principles around international insolvency regulation.

He steps down from the IPA after seven years.
