Begbies Traynor Group plc strengthens Northern advisory offering with appointment of new partner


Begbies Traynor Group plc strengthens Northern advisory offering with appointment of new partner

Leading business recovery, financial advisory and property services consultancy Begbies Traynor
Group plc has appointed restructuring and corporate finance specialist Martin Barron as a partner in
its BTG Advisory team in Leeds.

Joining Begbies Traynor Group from Grant Thornton where he was a partner and led the firm’s
restructuring team across Yorkshire and the North East, Martin is a qualified accountant with more
than 20 years’ experience advising businesses and stakeholders. Previously, he spent 16 years with
Deloitte LLP working within the firm’s restructuring services teams in Leeds and Newcastle.

Martin has worked across a wide range of sectors and organisations from small owner managed
businesses to large corporates and public sector bodies. His areas of expertise include cash and
working performance improvement, capital optimisation, turnaround planning, distressed debt
advisory, financial and operational restructuring.

In his new role, Martin will strengthen Begbies Traynor Group’s advisory offering in the North,
working under the BTG Advisory brand and supporting organisations, their owners and funders,
through periods of strategic, operational or organisational change.

Julian Pitts, regional managing partner for Begbies Traynor in Yorkshire, said: “Having such an
experienced advisory partner join the team will help us further grow our advisory offering,
particularly within the North. Martin is a highly ‐respected figure with a wide network of contacts
and will be able to provide vital insight into funding and refinancing options for a whole range of
organisations and stakeholders.”

Martin comments: “BTG Advisory has established an excellent reputation for adding value in difficult
and complex situations, particularly in the area of business under performance. As well as offering
high levels of client service, I have also been impressed by the strength of BTG Advisory’s
relationships within both the business and professional community.

“Given the uncertainties faced by businesses from both the current economic conditions and the
wider political debate, having the ability to effectively manage change will be key to the success,
survival and growth of organisations as they move forward. I believe both Begbies Traynor Group
and BTG Advisory are well‐positioned to provide the skills needed by businesses in these turbulent
times and look forward to working with the team to develop the firm’s advisory services regionally
and nationally.”
