We are pleased to announce that Andrew Tate, Restructuring Partner at Kreston Reeves, has been elected to take the reins as President of R3, the trade association for insolvency practitioners, in 2016.
Andrew has recently been elected as R3 Deputy Vice President and will become Vice President in 2015. Andrew has been a member of R3 for many years and was elected to R3 Council in 2012. Andrew currently chairs the Smaller Practices Group of R3, supporting members in smaller firms.
Andrew also previously chaired the Joint Insolvency Committee which is a regulatory board for insolvency practitioners and this has given him a full appreciation of the regulatory system for insolvency in the UK. He has already participated in the debates regarding the insolvency profession by giving evidence to parliamentary select committees and appearing on BBC’s Newsnight.
Andrew said “There are a number of fundamental changes to the insolvency market at present through the economic conditions and legislative changes which are being introduced. This is an exciting time for the insolvency profession and I am thrilled to be part of the leadership team at our trade body so that I can participate in shaping the future of the industry”.
