Business recovery specialists Begbies Traynor has announced it has made two senior promotions in its Preston office. Ian McCulloch, previously Insolvency director, has been promoted to Partner and Chris Lawton, previously Insolvency manager, has been promoted to Director.
McCulloch joined Begbies Traynor in 2008 and has handled a variety of high-profile administrations and restructuring cases across the North West; many of which have resulted in going-concern sales, jobs secured, and significant recoveries for creditors. He became a licensed insolvency practitioner in 2010.
Lawton joined Begbies Traynor in 2016. He has worked in corporate insolvency for over a decade – predominantly in the Lancashire region – and passed his insolvency practitioner exams this year.
Paul Stanley, North West regional managing partner at Begbies Traynor, said “Ian and Chris have an excellent understanding of Lancashire businesses and they have built between them a strong network of lenders, investors, and other professional advisers. Both play a key role in our Preston office which has gone from strength to strength in recent years and these promotions are richly deserved.”
