Partner promotions bolster Cowgills’ rapidly growing business recovery team
Business advisory and accountancy firm Cowgills has promoted two more team members to its partnership group.
Insolvency practitioners Ben Cowgill and Jimmy Fish both work within the company’s business recovery team. The 25 strong team includes six qualified insolvency practitioners operating across Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, and Yorkshire and is now one of the largest in the North.
Ben Cowgill, commented: “I’m extremely proud to join the partnership group during an incredibly busy period given the number of businesses experiencing financial difficulties. The business recovery team has been instrumental in advising stakeholders of distressed businesses throughout the UK, and I’m excited to continue to have the opportunity to make a real impact in the market. The invitation to Jimmy and I to take this step is reflective of our positive contribution to both growth and, importantly, the Cowgills culture.”
Jimmy Fish who also specialises in corporate restructuring and insolvency joined the firm just two years ago as part of a Cowgills acquisition. He added: “I’m thrilled for Ben and I to be joining the partnership team. We’re determined to continue to provide high quality technical and commercial advice in our market, which appears to be increasingly in demand as a result of the issues businesses face in these turbulent times.”
Head of business recovery Jason Elliott added: “I am delighted to welcome both Ben and Jimmy to the partnership. They have already contributed significantly to the growth of the practice. Their promotions to partner are well deserved and I look forward to working alongside them and the other partners as we continue to build the Cowgills brand.”
Commenting on the promotions, managing partner Paul Stringer said: “Ben and Jimmy have proved themselves to be valuable and experienced advisors and are very much rising stars within our business. They both have a strong work ethic, combined with commercial acumen and a key understanding of the needs of stakeholders of distressed businesses, very much reflecting Cowgills’ core values and ethos.”
He added: “As a business we strive to recognise and nurture talent in our people at every level. We know that Ben and Jimmy will continue to provide invaluable support both internally to their colleagues, and externally in the world of corporate restructuring and insolvency over the coming years.”
