Insolvency and restructuring firm expands presence in Bristol

Insolvency and restructuring firm CVR Global is expanding its presence into Bristol with the opening of a new office and three new appointments.

The company has moved into Broad Quay House in the city centre and added to its partner team with the appointment of Steve Ramsbottom.

Ramsbottom joins CVR with more than 28 years of restructuring and insolvency experience including spells with Moore Stephens, Deloitte and KPMG.

Jess Jennings has also joined CVR Global’s Bristol office as associate director, along with Tanja Waack who has joined as senior executive.

The firm was formed in 2015 following the management buyout of the business recovery division of accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott.

Richard Toone, managing partner at CVR Global, said: “We’re delighted to have opened the new office and to welcome Steve, Jess and Tanja to the firm, who have all have worked together in the past and have an in-depth knowledge of Bristol’s business community.

“The firm has grown considerably since the launch in 2015 – both around the UK and overseas – and our move into Bristol marks our first foray into the South West of the UK as we look to grow the business even further.

“Steve is a highly experienced insolvency practitioner who we have known for some time and he will play a key role expanding our operations in Bristol and the wider South west region.”

Ramsbottom added: “This is a very exciting time to be joining a firm with genuine ambition and growth plans.

“It is a major advantage for CVR’s Bristol office to have an established team in place from the start who have worked together for many years, and have extensive experience in helping underperforming businesses within the local market place.

“The Bristol and South West area is a thriving economy with an abundance of opportunities, but faces challenges ahead in the medium term due to Brexit-related  issues and rising interest rates.

“Our people are ideally placed to provide assistance and advice to these enterprises at such a critical time in their development.

“We are very much looking forward to integrating with the national CVR team who have an enviable reputation in the SME sector.”
