FRP marks latest round of national promotions

We have appointed three new Directors as part of our latest round of promotions across the UK.

Alex Sargeant has been promoted to Director within the firm’s Corporate Finance team, while Rachel Heighington and Ben Jones both take up the role within our Restructuring Advisory team.

Alex, who is based in our Bristol office, has more than 10 years’ experience and joined the firm in 2017 having previously specialised in financial due diligence in his former role. He specialises in buying a business and selling a business, primarily for business owners and private equity investors.

A qualified insolvency practitioner, Rachel has been a part of FRP’s Manchester office since 2010. She specialises in corporate restructuring and personal insolvency, working across a range of sectors including leisure, construction, manufacturing, retail and professional services.

Also working as part of our Restructuring Advisory team, Ben joined the firm’s Birmingham office in 2017. He regularly advises owner-managed businesses and has extensive knowledge of personal insolvency issues, having received a national award from the Joint Insolvency Examination Board for his paper on the subject.

Jeremy French, Managing Partner

In addition to the Director promotions, Shelie Gallagher from our Manchester office and Patrick Donnan from our London office have been promoted to the role of manager in our Restructuring Advisory team.

Commenting on the promotions, Managing Partner Jeremy French, said: “At such a critical juncture for the future of the UK economy, clients across the country continue to trust and rely upon the sound support and guidance provided by our team of specialist advisers. We will always look to attract and develop the best talent, and it’s extremely rewarding to see the personal progress of those involved in this latest round of promotions. Their success is testament to the dedication and high quality of service they provide to clients and I look forward to seeing them continue to deepen those relationships further in the future.”
