THE Insolvency Practitioners Association has appointed Mark Sands as its new president for the coming year.
Sands, a personal insolvency specialist at Baker Tilly Creditor Services, takes office with immediate effect, and serves as the association’s figurehead and chairman of its board of directors for the next 12 months.
He qualified as an IP in 1991 and has specialised in personal insolvency, professional practices and investigating fraudulent transactions for the past 15 years.
Commenting on his appointment, Sands said: “The IPA has played an integral role in the development of my career, so I am honoured to devote some of my time to this important membership body.
“Over the past seven years, the number of people choosing to use the IPA for their insolvency licensing has increased in an environment where the number of insolvency practitioners (IPs) has remained fairly static. I look forward to helping the IPA build on its success and to serving its members.”
