Boutique restructuring consultancy Cathro & Partners has appointed Mark Cook as a director.

Founded in 2021 by industry expert Simon Cathro, Cathro & Partners specialises in restructuring, turnaround, personal and corporate insolvency, safe harbour, secured enforcement, government advisory, and pre-lending services.

The addition of Mark Cook bolsters the firm’s senior team – he brings around two decades of experience in forensic accounting, fraud investigations, corporate restructuring advisory and insolvency to Cathro & Partners.

Founder Simon Cathro said Cook’s track record and experience will provide invaluable advice to the firm’s growing client base, with insolvency and fraud on the rise across the economy.

“We’re seeing an increased need for specialist expertise in forensic accounting and fraud investigations. While insolvency numbers are back at pre-Covid-19 levels, we’re predicting demand will spike as the country faces further rate hikes and a tough economic environment.”

Cook said he is pleased to join the growing consulting firm and looking forward to helping the firm’s clients preserve business value – or if too late – with their insolvency dealings. “I’m pleased to be joining a firm of Cathro & Partners’ calibre and reputation in market and working alongside an already stellar team.”

The appointment follows Cathro & Partners’ introduction of a personal insolvency service line last month to complement the firm’s work for corporate and government clients. The offering helps individuals across bankruptcy, controlling trustee and personal insolvency agreements.
