Dave Fenn (pictured), managing partner at Wilkins Kennedy, said: “Louise is a highly experienced insolvency specialist and will be an asset to our growing insolvency department. We would like to wish her a warm welcome to the firm.”

Wilkins Kennedy, ranked 21 in the 2013 Accountancy Age Top50+50 table, has revenues of £31.5m. The firm has recently expanded, having merged with Hampshire-based CW Fellowes last month and Southampton-based Matthews Mist in May.
