Meanwhile, Matthew Blum has been appointed Associate Director in the national Business Restructuring practice, based out of Melbourne. An insolvency specialist with 15 years of experience, Blum previously spent five years at Deloitte, latterly as a Director, and before that he worked for Rodgers Reidy, BDO in his first spell at the consultancy, and PwC.

Andrew Fielding, the National Leader of BDO’s Business Restructuring practice, said that the addition of Blum is part of a larger expansion drive in the restructuring space. “We anticipate a wave of insolvencies when the government support ceases, which will grow demand for our business restructuring services. We are bolstering our team to meet this demand.”
