PATRICK BRAZZILL steps up as president of the Insolvency Practitioners Association.
Brazzill (pictured) is a director at Ernst & Young, with more than 25 years experience in corporate restructuring. He joined E&Y in 1986, having recently worked at the Insolvency Service, as an examiner for four years. He is currently head of E&Y’s liquidation and strategic exit practice.
He succeeds Carl Faulds who will continue as a council member at the licensing body.
Brazzill said: “It is an honour to be appointed President of the IPA particularly in this its 50th year. I would like to thank Carl Faulds for his work over the past year and his assistance in preparing me for the year ahead.
“As president of the IPA, I recognise that regulation of insolvency is very much on the current agenda of parliament. It is important that the IPA continues to engage with government in ensuring that regulation of insolvency practitioners is seen to be fair and transparent and that the IPA continues to play a leading role in setting the agenda for the future of the profession.”
