Philip Campbell-Wilson was one of Grant Thornton’s key partner admissions for the FY17/18 year. He began his role yesterday, and the deal was done to recruit him in late July.
His appointment to the newly created role of insolvency and restructuring partner follows the departure of two executives in the last 15 months, including partner Andrew Sallway, who is now at BDO, and partner Gayle Dickerson, who is now at KPMG.
Grant Thornton continues to eye growth in this division, and is “actively” looking at recruiting another four members to the restructuring team, a spokesperson told Accountants Daily.
“It’s an exciting time for the team and we are delighted to have someone of Philip’s calibre join us,” said lead partner of the firm’s restructuring advisory arm, Said Jahani.
“As we all continue to experience significant disruption in the insolvency and restructuring industry, it’s important we have the right mix of talent and depth of expertise in order to meet changing client demands,” he said.
Mr Campbell-Wilson will be working closely with Mr Jahani as well as associate director for financial advisory John McInerney.
