The new office in Queen’s Gardens, Aberdeen will focus primarily on corporate and personal insolvency. It will be headed by Neil Dempsey, 33, who joins Begbies Traynor after five years with KPMG where he was a manager in corporate recovery and insolvency.
“Joining an ambitious and progressive firm such as Begbies Traynor and working with professionals who have such a wealth of experience is a fantastic opportunity, particularly with the added stimulus and challenge of opening a new office,” said Mr Dempsey, who was born in Dundee and lives in Aberdeen.
Partner Ken Pattullo said: “In light of the tremendous growth and development of Begbies Traynor over the last couple of years we feel it is very important for us to have a presence in all the major UK cities. We’re very excited about the move into Aberdeen which underlines our determination to develop as a major force in insolvency, turnaround and related professional support services.”
Ken joined the Glasgow office of Begbies Traynor in 2003, before overseeing the firm's expansion into further offices in Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Belfast. He previously worked at KPMG, Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers in Scotland. He has a broad range of experience in Corporate Rescue and Recovery, as well as in turnaround and restructuring, corporate and personal insolvency, investigations and IBRs.
