He joins after six years with Grant Thornton where he was responsible for the firm’s forensics in Scotland and prior to that was with PwC in both London and Edinburgh.
“I’m delighted to be joining a specialist firm which is free from conflicts of interest and one which for that very reason is demonstrating significant growth in Scotland and the UK as a whole,” he said.
Senior partner Ken Pattullo said: “We are delighted that someone of Peter’s experience and calibre in forensic accounting has joined Begbies Traynor. He will play a key role in meeting the ever increasing demand from clients for someone of his expertise in what is an expanding area of work amid the recession.”
Begbies Traynor has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee.
David joined Begbies Traynor in 2004 originally working in one of their regional offices. In 2006 he moved to the London office to help set up a specialist team focusing on creditor side assignments in the guise of Independent Business Reviews and Independent Solvency Reviews. David has 18 years’ experience in the accounting profession and prior to joining Begbies Traynor has worked in a number of Top 50 London based partnerships.
