Begbies Traynor expands Sheffield office with new partner appointment

Begbies Traynor has appointed Kris Wigfield as a partner in its Sheffield office.

Joining the firm from Wilson Field, where he acted as its Sheffield-based national head of sales for five years, qualified accountant and insolvency practitioner Kris will focus on growing Begbies Traynor’s presence within South Yorkshire and will work alongside fellow Begbies Traynor partner Gareth Rusling and directors Joanne Hammond, Ashleigh Fletcher and Claire Dowson.

Julian Pitts, regional managing partner for Begbies Traynor in Yorkshire, said: “We are really pleased that Kris is joining the firm at an exciting time of strategic growth and development for us in Sheffield. He brings a wealth of experience of the regional market and will be a valuable resource for our clients in and around the city who require advice on restructuring, refinancing and insolvency.

“Kris’s role will complement Gareth Rusling’s work on expanding our offering in Lincolnshire and I’m delighted to say that we expect to be able to announce the opening of a new Begbies Traynor office in Lincolnshire very soon.

“In addition our commercial finance team under Karl Hodson continues to grow with the recent appointments of Charlotte Davison and Richard House.”

Gareth Rusling said: “We have great plans for expansion at our Sheffield office and we welcome the opportunity to boost that growth and our presence here still further with Kris now on board. His experience is the perfect fit with our team and he will be a great asset to the firm.”

Kris Wigfield commented: “This is a really exciting time to be joining Begbies Traynor, which is going from strength to strength and is the largest national independent rescue and recovery firm in the city.

“As one of the UK’s historic manufacturing heartlands, Sheffield is facing a period of economic uncertainty as we prepare to leave the EU, and it’s essential that businesses know where to turn for sound advice, whether that’s on commercial finance or consulting, advisory and restructuring work.”
