Begbies Traynor Celebrates Five Years In Plymouth With New Appointments

Gilbert Lemon began his career in Plymouth as a Marine at 42 Commando before moving into the world of Insolvency in the eighties. Gilbert spent 16 years at KPMG as a senior manager in the Corporate Recovery Division. Immediately prior to returning to Plymouth he was at Bishop Fleming accountants in Bristol.

Simon Hicks worked as an accountant in Nottingham for two years before moving into the insolvency sector with Midlands based practices FA Simms and BRI. He brings 10 years of experience to Begbies Traynor. He is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Says Gilbert Lemon: “The company has had five very successful years in Plymouth. The new appointments signal the next phase in our growth and reflect increasing demand for our services. This is driven both by the current challenging economic climate and growing recognition that, if called in promptly when businesses spot warning signs, professional advisors can often assist in finding ways to continue trading or at least in minimising the impact of insolvency on directors and creditors.

Ian Walker, Regional Senior Partner added: “This is also an exciting time for Begbies Traynor because, as a group, we are expanding the range of services offered alongside business rescue. These now include providing independent professional advice and solutions to businesses, financial institutions, the accountancy and other professions and individuals in areas of finance, recovery, investigation and risk management, specialist financial advice and commercial finance.”
