He has been responsible for managing some of the largest client portfolios in the UK, providing all types of unique alerts to support his clients and their customers.

In his new role at Quantuma, Beat will be based in the firm’s London office, with a UK-wide remit. He will take on a hybrid role, building relationships with accountants, lawyers, and asset-based lenders, as well as working directly with businesses in sectors such as utilities, and telecommunications, in addition to providing support to Quantuma’s creditor services team.

In the last year, Quantuma has experienced staff growth of 45 per cent, boasting a 273-strong team, up from 188 in 2020. Recent senior hires in the UK have included Managing Director appointments for its growing Forensic Accounting team, David Bell and Kate Hart as well as Ben Hammerton to lead its eDiscovery offering. 

The firm has also expanded its international presence with the hire of Poland-based Managing Director Adam Markiewicz and with the opening of its first base in the Middle East, led by Managing Director Yaser Dajani in Dubai.

The firm is at an exciting moment in its journey as it expands into key locations across the globe.”
