Duff and Phelps has appointed Chris Coley as its managing director for its Global Restructuring Advisory practice.
Coley, who will be based in London, joins Duff and Phelps after nine years at FTI Consulting within the firm’s Corporate Finance and Restructuring practice, in both London and Singapore. He had previously trained within the corporate restructuring practice at EY.
With 15 years of experience in financial and business advisory services, specialising in providing restructuring and turnaround advice to creditors, lenders, corporates and other stakeholders, Duff and Phelps said Coley will bring “considerable restructuring advisory expertise and skills” to the firm.
David Whitehouse, MD and head of UK restructuring advisory, said: “Chris has been involved in a number of high-profile restructuring assignments over the years, ranging from mid-market transactions to large complex financial restructuring engagements, with a strong focus on business reviews, liquidity management and corporate advisory across a wide range of industries and jurisdictions.
“This expertise will bring considerable strength to the team, not only in London but across the Global Restructuring Advisory practice.”
Coley added: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Duff and Phelps and look forward to contributing to the continuing development of the practice. I believe I have joined the team at an incredibly exciting time where I can continue to focus on the mid-market in a major advisory role as the firm continues to grow in the UK and Europe.”
