FRP Advisory has appointed Ben Stanyon as the new director of its restructuring advisory team.
The firm said Stanyon “advises businesses across all stages of the corporate life cycle”, in a range of sectors including leisure, real estate, construction, retail and manufacturing.
He also has supported SMEs and owner managed businesses on a variety of restructuring situations, and will lead both advisory assignments and formal insolvencies, focusing primarily on supporting clients in Kent and the wider South East market.
He joins FRP’s 85-strong restructuring advisory team in London and the south east, having recently led the administration of a plastic polymer manufacturer, successfully securing a buyer for the business while protecting the roles of all employees.
Geoff Carton-Kelly, partner at FRP, said: “While the UK economy has rebounded in recent weeks, many businesses across the South East continue to exhibit signs of financial stress. Our clients rely on us to provide the guidance to both alleviate and avoid those pressures which is why we look to welcome and invest in experienced advisers like Ben.
“I’ve no doubt he’ll continue to prove a valuable asset for business leaders in Kent while growing our presence in the wider region.”
Stanyon added: “FRP has developed an outstanding reputation in recent years, generating a high-profile client base via a team of widely-recognised industry figures. I’m looking forward to working closely with the team as well as advising our clients as they look to navigate the challenges and opportunities of running a business in 2020.”
