Begbies Traynor names new lead for Staffordshire operation

Michaela Daly has gained a ‘wealth of experience’ having had the opportunity to work alongside companies such as Port Vale Ltd and Wedgwood Museum Trust Ltd.

Experienced insolvency practitioner, Michaela Daly has been appointed to lead the Begbies Traynor operation in Staffordshire from this month following Diane Dunion’s retirement from the business.

Since last year, the firm said Daly has been running the office alongside Dunion and has played a “pivotal role” in growing the Staffordshire practice since it was acquired by Begbies Traynor in 2019.

The team has grown “significantly” in Staffordshire in the past three years, and continues to expand from its dedicated offices at Lymedale Business Park.

According to the firm, with a career spanning almost 25 years, Daly has gained a “wealth of experience” having had the opportunity to work alongside companies such as Port Vale (Valiant 2001) Ltd and Wedgwood Museum Trust Ltd. In addition, she has a “high level” of experience with personal insolvency, dealing with both bankruptcy and trading Individual Voluntary Arrangements.

Daly said: “Diane built a strong practice under the Dunion and Co brand, which has continued to expand since the acquisition by Begbies Traynor just three years ago. I feel proud to take on the mantle and continue to build the business, providing support and guidance to companies when they need it most.

“Our mantra will continue to be ‘early intervention’ because we know that we can make a positive difference to the future of a business if they call on our services in the initial stages of financial difficulty.”

Dunion added: “It has been a privilege to build this practice here in Staffordshire and I know it will be in very safe and experienced hands with Michaela leading the team. She has a real passion for helping businesses to work through times of distress, always focussed on finding the most positive outcome.”
