Quantuma appoints Alistair Dickson as managing director to Glasgow office
Cross-border advisory firm, Quantuma, has appointed seasoned restructuring advisory professional Alistair Dickson as a managing director in its Glasgow office.
With over 30 years of industry experience, Mr Dickson, a chartered accountant, will join the firm from his previous position as the director and head of Scotland at a regional accounting firm.
His career trajectory includes key roles at several mid-tier and boutique professional services firms in Scotland. Before that, he spent 12 years at National Australia Bank, directing UK restructuring, distressed lending and leveraged credit teams.
Armed with an extensive background in sanctioning leveraged debt and assisting businesses with financial concerns, Mr Dickson is poised to aid enterprises showing early signs of distress.
Working alongside managing directors Ian Wright and Scott Milne, his arrival is anticipated to fortify the firm’s restructuring advisory practice and contribute to the team’s growth in Glasgow.
Mr Dickson said: “I am delighted to have joined Quantuma to support further growth in Scotland as the firm accelerates its already impressive expansion.
I was attracted by the quality and profile of work the Quantuma team undertakes, as well as the collaborative approach the firm encourages for its client engagements. The firm’s drive and ambition are very impressive and I am pleased to be playing an active role in its expansion.
“I am looking forward to further developing the Glasgow-based Restructuring Advisory team and to supporting our business clients across Scotland in this challenging economic climate.”
Quantuma CEO, Carl Jackson, said: “As we look to accelerate our growth story, having just surpassed our tenth anniversary and following recent investment from the European arm of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., I am delighted to welcome Alistair to the firm, who joins us to further enhance our Restructuring Advisory capabilities.
“We have built a highly regarded multi-disciplinary team in the UK, and I am delighted that Alistair has chosen to join us.
“I look forward the contribution he will make in developing and growing our Glasgow-based Restructuring Advisory practice.”
