“As well as working in the insolvency sector Chris will be helping us to unlock early intervention credit management and cash flow advisory work to help businesses try to recover from a wealth of issues.”
Chris agreed: “This is a good time to be talking to businesses, now facing creditor reckoning, cost of living and energy price hikes, and bringing expertise to their situations – whether it’s debt recovery, debt security or simple good habits with credit control. It makes a big difference to business success and funder confidence.”
When he is not working Chris enjoys watching his 11 year old son play football, coaching football himself and long walks with the dog whenever he can.
