Andrew Poxon appointed head of North & Scotland region at Leonard Curtis
Andrew Poxon has been appointed head of the North & Scotland division for Leonard Curtis which includes offices in Glasgow, Bury, Manchester, Preston, Chester, and Liverpool.
The move is part of a new management structure that has been put in place to accelerate and promote a focus on growth.
Leonard Curtis is the largest privately-owned professional services provider of corporate restructuring and insolvency in the UK employing over 250 people across 21 offices including Manchester, London, Birmingham, Leeds as well as the Channel Islands.
Mr Poxon’s appointment will be instrumental in the delivery of strategic goals for the Group - which recently announced its plans to double in size in the next three years.
Reporting to the executive board, Mr Poxon will be joined by three other regionally-based colleagues looking after restructuring and insolvency across four UK territories and two divisional heads looking after funding and legal services.
Andrew Poxon commented: “I am very pleased to be part of such a well-positioned firm and working with an excellent team in our Northern heartland and fast-growing Scottish market. We aim to provide the very best advisory support for business owners across multiple sectors focused on restructuring and insolvency, funding and legal services. There has never been a more important time for businesses to have access to the skills and experience at Leonard Curtis to map out their recovery strategies.”
Confirming the new structure, CEO, Dan Booth, added: “I am delighted to be working with such an experienced leadership team and looking forward to seeing what we can all achieve. We are confident we can significantly scale this business and now we have clarity - by region and division - on how we will achieve it. Our plans for growth and development will be delivered by applying our key principles of confidence, commitment, and consistency.”
Demand for the firm’s services has been increasing rapidly as businesses look for solutions after the pandemic and face challenging economic conditions currently.
COO Jon Mercer said: “Growth will undoubtedly come from our current three pillars of expertise – legal services, restructuring and insolvency, raising finance - and we will also be looking to add on complementary skills - like M & A or tax consulting where the synergies align very well.”
