Begbies Traynor Group has strengthened its advisory offering in the Yorkshire and Humber with the appointment of experienced business and finance expert Mike Day.
Mr Day, who joins as director in the BTG Advisory division, has spent almost 25 years with Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance in a number of roles, including senior client manager and area director, before moving to Bibby Financial Services for seven years, latterly in the position of head of sales.
In his new role, he will focus on Begbies Traynor Group’s growing offices in the Humber region including Hull, Grimsby and Scunthorpe as well as working across Yorkshire.
He will complement the firm’s established BTG Advisory team which provides a wide range of services including fund raising and acquisitions, disposals and sales ledger management, alongside debt restructuring and review, and also supports the Group’s Eddisons property and Ernest Wilson business disposal and insolvency divisions.
“With his strong commercial acumen and solid track record in operational roles, Mike will be an invaluable addition to our BTG Advisory team,” said Andrew Mackenzie, partner for Begbies Traynor Group in Yorkshire.
“We are confident that he will be able to use his vast business and finance experience to further enhance our offering and commitment to providing value added services to our clients in the Humber region and across Yorkshire.”
Mr Day added: “Having worked in financial services for over 30 years, I am well aware of Begbies Traynor Group’s strong reputation and the growth of its business support services.
“Having been born and bred in the Humber region and now living in Doncaster, I am passionate about supporting local businesses and look forward to working alongside Andrew and the advisory team to provide funding expertise.”
