BTG Advisory has appointed restructuring and corporate finance specialist Martin Barron as a partner in its advisory team in Leeds.
Joining from Grant Thornton, where he was a partner and led the firm’s restructuring team across Yorkshire and the North East, Martin is a qualified accountant with more than 20 years’ experience advising businesses and stakeholders. Previously, he spent 16 years with Deloitte LLP working within the firm’s restructuring services teams in Leeds and Newcastle.
Martin has worked across a wide range of sectors and organisations from small owner managed businesses to large corporates and public sector bodies. His areas of expertise include cash and working performance improvement, capital optimisation, turnaround planning, distressed debt advisory, financial and operational restructuring.
In his new role, he will strengthen BTG Advisory’s offering in the North, supporting organisations, their owners and funders, through periods of strategic, operational or organisational change.
Mark Fry, head of BTG Advisory, said: “Having such an experienced advisory partner join the team will help us further grow our advisory offering, particularly within the North. 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.”
Martin comments: “BTG Advisory has established an excellent reputation as a firm able to deliver a broad range of professional support, acting as a one-stop shop for business solutions. As well as offering high levels of client service, whatever the size of the business, I have also been impressed by the strength of its relationships within both the business and professional community.
“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 BTG Advisory is well-positioned to provide the skills required by businesses and look forward to working with the team to develop the firm’s advisory services regionally and nationally.”
