Begbies Traynor Group has announced that Scott Kippax has been promoted to partner at the firm’s Exeter office.
A seasoned insolvency practitioner with over 20 years’ experience in corporate restructuring and insolvency, he joined the firm in October 2020 and works with businesses across Devon and Cornwall.
He offers a “comprehensive” suite of rescue, recovery and restructuring services and is fully licenced by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
The move extends the team’s overall numbers in Exeter to eight, and comes after long standing office head, Ian Walker, stepped down from the role in May this year.
Kippax said: “It’s a real privilege to take on the office head role from such an accomplished and respected practitioner as Ian.
“As we tentatively come out of the final phase of lockdown, we are seeing increasing enquiries from companies across the South West who are actively reflecting on their post pandemic position and we’re looking forward to working with more businesses as they prepare for what are likely to be a challenging and unpredictable number of months ahead.”
