Insolvency Service appoints two new directors

Peck will lead the agency’s largest directorate, overseeing the administration and statutory investigation of bankruptcies and compulsory company liquidations, whilst Lupton oversees the agency’s criminal enforcement and civil litigation legal work

The Insolvency Service has announced the appointment of two new directors to its Official Receiver Services and Legal Services directorates.

It revealed Rob Peck returns to the agency as director of Official Receiver Service after 6 years at the Home Office. Peck first joined the Insolvency Service 29 years ago and has served as an examiner before being the official receiver for its Croydon and Brighton offices.

At the Home Office, Peck led 550 staff handling appeals against asylum and immigration decisions and more recently served as head of Appeals, Litigation and Administrative Review.

According to the service, Peck will lead the agency’s largest directorate, overseeing the administration and statutory investigation of bankruptcies and compulsory company liquidations.

The service also said Jonathan Lupton has been appointed director of Legal Services. Lupton qualified as a solicitor in 1999 after he completed his training contract at a specialist firm of solicitors and licenced insolvency practitioners in Yorkshire.

Throughout his career, Lupton has specialised in personal and corporate insolvency and is also a qualified insolvency practitioner, where he has held a number of personal and corporate insolvency office holder appointments.

The firm said he has been a partner of a law firm heading up their Insolvency and Business Recovery team and an associate director at a leading Insolvency Litigation Funding Company, before joining the Insolvency Service in January 2019. Lupton has responsibility for overseeing the agency’s criminal enforcement and civil litigation legal work.
