BM Advisory adds new partner
Insolvency and restructuring firm BM Advisory has announced the hire of Rich Keley as partner.
Joining the firm from Australian-based insolvency and corporate restructuring firm McGrathNicol, Keley has 14 years of experience within the UK and Australian insolvency industries.
Keley said: “I am delighted to join the young and ambitious team at BM Advisory and I look forward to assisting Andy Pear and Mike Solomons in continuing to expand and drive the practice forward.”
Having qualified as a chartered accountant with Deloitte in 2002 and qualified as an insolvency practitioner in 2006, Keley has recently relocated back to the South East of England from Australia where he spent the last six years.
Andy Pear, partner at BM Advisory, said: “Over the past three years, BM Advisory has gone from strength to strength. The business has expanded organically, as the number of high level appointments have increased. In 2013 we further extended our geographic reach with the merger of a successful and well-established South East-based business recovery and insolvency business.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Rich to BM Advisory. His complimentary skills in the insolvency and restructuring arena and his extensive network of contacts are an excellent fit with the group and his extensive knowledge and expertise in this field will further enhance our increasingly comprehensive offering to our clients and introducers.”
