We’re pleased to announce the appointment of John Potts as Business Development Partner.
John has more than 25 years’ experience and joins from one of the UK’s leading asset recovery specialists, where he was a Director. He has also held several senior business development roles within the financial services sector, having worked at notable firms, including a leading bank.
Throughout his career, John has advised banks, borrowers and asset-based lenders across the UK’s mid-market, and in his new role he will work closely with our growing Restructuring Advisory team to seek out new business opportunities and help to develop existing client relationships.
He will also support our Corporate Finance and Debt Advisory teams within FRP Corporate Finance, helping to grow the firm’s client base. He will be based in our London office.
Commenting on his appointment, John said: “Having spent most of my career in the financial services sector, I’ve long been aware of FRP and the brilliant work the team does. FRP is going from strength to strength and it’s a great time to be joining as there is a real opportunity to support the firm’s continued growth journey. I can’t wait to get stuck in and am looking forward to getting out and meeting the teams and their clients.”
John’s appointment comes amid a strong period of growth for FRP, which has seen us open new offices in Sunderland, Cambridge, Glasgow, Leigh-on-Sea and Southampton in recent months. We also announced a series of annual promotions in May, which saw us promote a total of 66 people across a wide range of seniority and specialist roles.
Jeremy French, Chief Operating Officer at FRP, added: “We pride ourselves on our honest, clear and considered approach, and this is reflected through our client relationships and is a fundamental part of how we do business. As we grow, it’s vital that we don’t lose sight of this and I’m confident that with his track record of developing long-lasting partnerships, John will be a real asset to the firm.”
