RSM Tenon bolsters London restructuring team

RSM TENON has recruited senior team members into its transactions and restructuring team in the London office.

Accountancy Age revealed in August 2011 that Andrew Hosking would leave Grant Thornton. Hosking had been at the top five firm for nearly a decade as insolvency partner and prior to that spent eight years in a similar role at HLB Kidsons, (prior to its merger with Baker Tilly).

He has been serving as a consultant with RSM Tenon for the last 12 months and will now work as a partner in the transactions and restructuring team, focusing on large cross-border insolvencies.

Hosking is joined by Simon Bonney and Sarah Batchelor which will bring the number of partners on the RSM Tenon team to nine.

Bonney was previously at Vantis which collapsed in 2010. He joined RSM when it acquired some elements of the London office.

Batchelor was recruited from Baker Tilly and has more than 20 years’ experience in the advisory field. She has worked as a manager at Ernst & Young before joining RSM Robson Rhodes where she left as senior manager after four years. She then joined Baker Tilly as director making partner after three years.

Head of restructuring at RSM Tenon Chris Ratten said: “For some time we have considered how we can enhance our service offering to clients in the London market with a view to both formal and restructuring services.

“With these recent appointments, we now have a team with a great mix of expertise and experience who will significantly enhance our offer in restructuring and complex and international insolvency and really take the firm forward.”
