Corporate recovery and restructuring firm Buchler Phillips has promoted Larry Jobsz to managing partner, where he will lead significant assignments for clients and assume day-to-day responsibilities for running the firm.
In his new role, he will be working closely with chairman David Buchler and the firm’s partners to direct the group’s growth strategy.
Since joining Buchler Phillips in 1994, Jobsz has been “particularly successful” in working with troubled companies to establish best-practice internal disciplines in the areas of compliance and crisis management, according to the firm.
In 1996 he built a department within the firm that operated as an internal auditor, as well as a means to progress logjams of insolvent estates to closure.
In addition, he has also developed an expertise in the insurance industry over the last 30 years, and has led Buchler Phillips in a number of high profile assignments with reinsurance companies in the London market.
Jobsz first began his accountancy career at Deloitte in 1989, where he spent eight years working on several insolvency projects in the Airline Industry. These included the Liquidation of Laker Airways, where he was responsible for compiling the statutory closure for the Laker Airways Group of companies.
David Buchler, co-founder and chairman of Buchler Phillips, said: “Larry has been a huge part of our firm’s history and now has a pivotal role in guiding its future. He is a superb practitioner, a valued Partner and a great manager, so I’m delighted to be able to hand him the reins of day-to-day control.
“This promotion will help Buchler Phillips to manage its expansion amid significant demand at present for our services in restructuring, turnaround, administrations and insolvency, working with both corporates and individuals.”
