Restructuring and corporate finance specialist Martin Barron has been appointed as a partner at Begbies Traynor Group’s BTG Advisory team in Leeds.
Mr Barron joins from Grant Thornton where he was a partner and led the firm’s restructuring team across Yorkshire and the North East.
Previously, he spent 16 years with Deloitte LLP working within the firm’s restructuring services teams in Leeds and Newcastle.
In his new role, Mr Barron will strengthen Begbies Traynor Group’s advisory offering in the North, working under the BTG Advisory brand and supporting organisations, their owners and funders, through periods of strategic, operational or organisational change.
“Having such an experienced advisory partner join the team will help us further grow our advisory offering, particularly within the North,” said regional managing partner Julian Pitts.
“Martin is a highly -respected figure with a wide network of contacts and will be able to provide vital insight into funding and refinancing options for a whole range of organisations and stakeholders.”
Mr Barron added: “Given the uncertainties faced by businesses from both the current economic conditions and the wider political debate, having the ability to effectively manage change will be key to the success, survival and growth of organisations as they move forward.
“I believe both Begbies Traynor Group and BTG Advisory are well-positioned to provide the skills needed by businesses in these turbulent times and look forward to working with the team to develop the firm’s advisory services regionally and nationally.”
