Moore Kingston Smith has announced the appointment of partner Ian Robert to Chair of Moore Recovery UK – the recovery sector group with members from across the Moore UK network.

Robert takes over from Duncan Swift, following the group’s recent annual conference. Robert is Head of Corporate Recovery at Moore Kingston Smith Licensed Insolvency Practitioners and has 30 years of insolvency experience. His expertise is drawn from helping clients in financial distress spanning the full range of industries, including most recently entertainment software, pension administration, property and media.

Ian Robert said “I am honoured to be appointed chair of Moore Recovery UK and look forward to building on all the good work led by Duncan. The rebranding to Moore earlier this month marks a new era for the Moore group. With the economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit, business confidence is low and recovery experts are needed to support stakeholders in challenging times.”
