Recovery and restructuring group Begbies Traynor has appointed its sixth partner in Scotland with the promotion of Jenn Stewart from director to partner in its growing team.
Jenn leads the firm’s Dundee office. She joined Begbies Traynor in 2004 having previously worked as a senior insolvency administrator for an accountancy firm in Edinburgh and as a global financial analyst before that. With more than ten years’ experience in insolvency, Jenn was appointed as director with Begbies Traynor in January 2010.
Jenn has extensive experience in insolvency and restructuring with particular expertise in the hospitality and agricultural sectors. She specialises in personal insolvency advice and the Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS).
“Over the years, I have gained experience in advising and supporting those with debt issues; from full debt write off to negotiating with creditors for time to pay the debt off,” explained Jenn.
“I have worked with individuals, businesses and limited companies to help them find solutions to their particular circumstances and can advise on formal insolvency as well as non formal solutions.”
A member of the Insolvency Practitioners Association, Jenn has achieved the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency and is currently working towards passing the Joint Insolvency qualification.
She also manages Begbies Traynor’s relationship with the Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB) in terms of the Debt Arrangement Scheme Payment Distribution Panel.
“As head of our Dundee office, Jenn has made a significant contribution to building our presence in the region as well as to the success of the Scottish practice as a whole,” said Ken Pattullo, managing partner.
“This promotion is a reflection of the key role she has played and we are confident that she will continue
to help us to grow our Scottish practice.”
