Insolvency Practitioners Association set to elect Deborah Manzoori as youngest female president in its history

THE Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) is set to elect the youngest female president in its 54-year history, the membership body and regulator for insolvency practitioners said.

Deborah Manzoori of Insolvency Consultancy has been selected as the IPA’s next deputy vice-president. She will take up the office from the date of the annual general meeting on 29 April 2015, and is expected to become IPA president in April 2017.

Mark Sands, partner at Baker Tilly, is currently president while Mark Fry of Begbies Traynor serves as vice president.

Manzoori, a regulatory, compliance and technical expert with over 20 years’ experience in the field of insolvency, has been a member of the IPA since 1995 and will be its third female president.

“The IPA plays a vital role not only in raising standards within the insolvency profession and in providing a range of services to members, but also in widening knowledge and understanding of the value of the work of insolvency practitioners,” Manzoori said.

“It’s important that members play an active role in working within the professional bodies that shape policy, and I look forward to contributing to the IPA’s future success.”
