“It goes without saying that I’m delighted I’ve been promoted to Partner. Begbies Traynor is a fantastic place to work, and I am grateful to have been supported by an enthusiastic and hard working team. I’m very much looking forward to this new challenge.”
Francesca has worked across a variety of industry sectors, particularly with SME’s, and has broad experience in all aspects of insolvency involving both corporate and personal insolvency work.
