Milsted Langdon welcomes first female insolvency practitioner

Rachel makes company history 17 years after starting at firm

MILSTED LANGDON has appointed its first female insolvency practitioner.

Rachel Hotham made company history this month after formally taking on the role, some 17 years after she started at the South West firm’s Taunton office as a part-time insolvency cashier.

In 2005, she started working in the Bristol office, gained her Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency which enabled her to study for the Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB)

Rachel said: “I got a non-appointment taking licence in 2012 and then earlier this year I decided to convert to an appointment taking licence. My first appointment as a Joint Administrator was in March 2014.

“The funny thing is that I didn’t set out to be an insolvency practitioner! When I was growing up I never envisaged working for a firm of chartered accountants, but if I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
