Diane is a Partner at Begbies Traynor Group and is jointly responsible for the Stoke on Trent Office. Diane’s career in insolvency began in 1990, when she joined the Insolvency Service as an examiner. She remained with the Insolvency Service for 10 years, before moving to Barringtons Insolvency Practitioners in 1999, qualifying as an Insolvency Practitioner in 2002. Between 2005 and 2008, Diane worked as an Insolvency Practitioner in Manchester where she handled a high volume of Individual Voluntary Arrangements. In 2008, Diane returned to Stoke on Trent in order to establish and grow her own practice, which was acquired by Begbies Traynor Group in March 2019.
Drawing on experience gained from her time at the Insolvency Service and also from being sole director of her own company, Diane specialises in assisting small to medium sized businesses. Whether a Sole Trader or a Company Director, Diane will carefully consider the position, before giving practical, ‘no nonsense’ advice as to the best way forward.
Diane is licensed to act as an Insolvency Practitioner by the Insolvency Practitioners Association and served on her regulator’s Investigation Committee from 2011 to 2018. She is currently a member of the Regulation and Conduct Committee.
