Ben joined FRP in 2013 as a Partner in the Restructuring Advisory team at our Manchester office. He is a Chartered Certified Accountant and Turnaround Professional with over 20 years’ experience, and has been taking advisory and formal insolvency appointments since 2007.
More recently Ben’s primary focus has been advising mid-market, owner-managed companies and their stakeholders – including banks, asset-based lenders and private equity – at times of change and distress. He has led and project managed assignments in construction, retail, manufacturing, engineering and the regulated financial sector.
Ben’s previous experience includes leading a team of reporting accountants and debt advisory professionals in reviewing a distressed large civil engineering business, avoiding insolvency and securing re-finance; and being appointed administrator over an FCA-regulated debt management and individual voluntary arrangement business which had been the victim of fraud, leading to a two-year investigation and reconciliation.
