TWO NEW MEMBERS have joined PKF Cooper Parry’s restructuring team. The additions make the team one of the largest in the East Midlands.
The appointments of Paul Addison and Steve Butler bring the number of employees working on restructuring assignments at the business advisory and accountancy firm to 20.
Addison, who served with Grant Thornton for 20 years, spent the first 15 years of his career working in London before moving to the Midlands. He joins PKF as director of restructuring.
He said: “I’m thrilled to have joined PKF Cooper Parry and excited to bring my expertise to the table. As the economy improves, directors will gain confidence to invest in their business to take advantage of new opportunities.”
Butler joins PKF as a senior administrator, after 12 years working for a mid-tier accountancy firm and one of the top four accountancy firms. He will be responsible for managing a portfolio of cases at the firm, with involvement in various restructuring assignments from commencement to conclusion.
“I was attracted by the strong reputation of PKF Cooper Parry, particularly its modern, forward-thinking approach,” said Butler. “I already feel part of a great team.”
Tyrone Courtman, partner and head of restructuring, said: “Paul and Steve are fantastic additions to our team. It is a very exciting time for the firm, with our move to the new office and a bank of innovative and creative plans for the future of our business.”
