New partner appointment to head Begbies Traynor Preston office

Dean Watson has been appointed as partner in charge of the Preston office of the UK’s leading independent business recovery and insolvency practitioner Begbies Traynor.

Dean, a qualified accountant and licensed insolvency practitioner with over 25 years’ experience of advising businesses, joined Begbies Traynor in the North West in 1999. In his new role he will oversee the 25-strong team, who have been based at the firm’s Preston city centre offices in Chapel Street for more than 23 years.

“I’m really pleased to be taking on the role of leading the long established Preston office,” said Dean. “It’s a dynamic team that’s going from strength to strength and offering the full range of Begbies Traynor’s services across a really wide and diverse geographic area.

“We work with businesses across every sector and in a variety of situations, sometimes growing and sometimes facing challenges, and we have a very broad range of expertise to call upon within our teams here in Preston, across the region and nationally.”

He added: “I’m looking forward to working with the firm’s existing - and many of them longstanding - clients as well as welcoming new ones as we step up our business here in West Lancashire, with several key hires planned over the coming months.”

North West-based Begbies Traynor, which its head office in Manchester, is listed on AIM and offers corporate recovery and restructuring services, as well as corporate finance, forensic accounting and investigations services from its 37 UK offices.

The firm’s Preston office provides services for clients across the whole of Lancashire as well as throughout Cumbria to Barrow in the West and Carlisle in the North.
