Insolvency and business recovery expert Andy Wood has joined Wilson Field to strengthen its nine-strong team of insolvency practitioners and 90 staff.

Andy, who was previously employed at The P&A Partnership for 17 years as a licence holder and appointment taker, joins the Ecclesall Road-based firm as an associate director.

He has 23 years experience as an insolvency specialist and his acquisition has been described as a ‘real coup’ by company bosses.

He said: “I have principally been involved with corporate restructuring and insolvency work since 2003. I believe the key to success is treating all businesses, large or small, equally and with the same respect.

“Empathy is one of my strengths and I like to ensure time is taken to understand how a business operates and what are the root causes of the issues faced. Relationships and trust are key.

“I always like to start at the point - can this company and/or the business be saved? This is the ideal solution for interested parties, including the creditors who are owed money by the business.”

Andy served on the R3 Association of Business Recovery Professionals regional committee for Yorkshire and Humberside for more than 10 years until stepping down in 2011. He was regional chairman from 2008 to 2010.

Nick Wilson, managing director of Wilson Field, said: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the team and look forward to his support in helping us take the company to the next level.”
