Pugh has over 20 years of refinancing, restructuring and insolvency experience, holding a long-term position at mid-tier accounting and consulting firm RSM UK, where he was an associate director in the restructuring advisory team. During this time, Pugh established himself as a trusted advisor to businesses across the North West.
In his new role at Quantuma, Pugh will work with the firm’s growing North West team, developing and managing relationships with accountants, lawyers and lenders, helping to further cement the firm’s offering in the region.
This news follows the appointment of Jeremy Woodside at the beginning of 2021 and promotion of Frank Ofonagoro to managing director last month. Since Quantuma opened its Manchester office in 2019, the team’s headcount has grown consistently and is expected to continue to grow in the next 12 months.
Gareth Pugh said: “The pace at which Quantuma’s North West team has grown and the way in which it has established itself as a leading advisory firm in the region since opening its doors in 2019 is really impressive. Robert and the team have gone from strength to strength, and I am excited to be joining them to further the success achieved.”
Robert Parry, managing director at Quantuma added: “In what is an incredibly challenging period for businesses in the region, the need for a trusted advisor that can bring a professional, strategic and problem-solving approach has never been more crucial. Gareth brings this and more, with a blend of restructuring, insolvency and banking experience, making him a valuable asset to the firm and to our clients.”
