FORMER BEGBIES TRAYNOR director Andrew Watling has taken a similar role at rival insolvency firm Quantuma
Insolvency practitioner Watling, has more than 20 years’ experience in advising businesses and held positions at firms such as Knights & Company and Middleton Partners before he took the Begbies Traynor role. He has also served in the business support unit at Lloyds Bank.
Carl Jackson (pictured), head of Quantuma, said: “Andrew’s experience will be an asset to the growing Quantuma team both in Southampton and in our recently opened Brighton and Marlow offices.
“He has all the right skills, experience and a vast array of knowledge to help expand our growing business and ensure it continues to expand.”
Jackson, a former RSM Tenon head of restructuring, created Southampton-based Quantuma alongside fellow ex-RSM Tenon partners Paul Goddard and Kelly Mitchell.
Formed just one year ago, the firm bought two former RSM Tenon practices in Marlow and Brighton in December from its then new owners Baker Tilly. The sale included the business and assets from both offices, including staff and cases.
Listed firm RSM Tenon was sold to Baker Tilly in September last year via a pre-pack administration.
