Begbies Traynor Group is delighted to announce the launch of new advisory practice, BTG Advisory. BTG Advisory is a multiservice offering, bringing together the Group’s various non-insolvency specialities. Headed up by Mark Fry, the new venture is a highly specialised boutique advisory and consultancy practice staffed by leading professionals to support clients with the professional services they require.
The new unified partner-led business provides expert advice, guidance and innovate strategic solutions to companies, investors, lenders and other stakeholders. Encompassing BTG Financial Consulting, as well as areas including corporate finance, litigation support, forensic consulting, and restructuring and turnaround, BTG Advisory has coverage across the full spectrum of professional services.
With a truly national presence, BTG Advisory will operate from six strategically placed UK offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Bristol. International clients can also be served, and this will be done through BTG Global Advisory, the worldwide arm of BTG Advisory.
Mark Fry, Head of Advisory at BTG Advisory, said:
“We are extremely excited to announce the launch of BTG Advisory, bringing together a specialist team of experts offering a boutique, partner-led advice service.
“As well as our established national network in the UK, we also have the capability to undertake significant international assignments through our global alliance, BTG Global Advisory, advising many leading banks, law firms, private equity and other funds, bankruptcy debtors, creditor committees and operating companies, across all continents and multiple offshore centres.”
Mark is an experienced insolvency practitioner, with over twenty years experience. Originally a founding partner in Taylor Gotham & Fry, a specialist boutique practice in the corporate recovery sector, he later sold this practice in 2005 to Begbies Traynor. Mark is now the Regional Managing Partner for the company, responsible for London and the South East. During his time at Begbies Traynor he has developed a separate but integrated restructuring and banking practice; this part of the business has worked in both debtor and creditor led turnaround situations. He also holds several directorships of trading companies outside the financial sector, which assists his awareness and understanding of the issues found by business managers and owners.
Mark is a Counsel Member of the Insolvency Practioners Association and a member of their Membership and Authorisation Committee, as well as the Education and Training Committee. He has also served as a member of the General Technical Committee for R3, the Association of Business Recovery Professionals.
