Business advisory firm Quantuma has promoted corporate recovery specialist Paul Zalkin to partner in its London office.
Paul has spent two years at Quantuma, having joined the firm’s insolvency and restructuring practice as a director in 2016. He has almost 20 years’ experience in mid-market corporate recovery, working across a wide range of industry sectors, including care homes, property and hospitality and leisure. In addition, Paul holds accreditations from the Joint Insolvency Examination Board and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

Most recently, Paul has been leading the restructuring of a £100m turnover chemical distribution and manufacturing group, dealing with the disposal of a £20m commercial property via an administration process and, as trustee in bankruptcy, investigating the whereabouts of £25m dissipated in a series of failed offshore investments schemes.

During his time at Quantuma, Paul has spearheaded the firm’s focus on the fintech and alternative finance markets, building several key relationships. He was part of the team responsible for establishing Quantuma’s relationship with a range of alternative finance platforms as well as championing Quantuma’s associate membership to the Peer to Peer Finance Association, the UK’s self-regulatory body for peer to peer lending. This saw the firm become the first restructuring business advisor to be admitted to the organisation.

Paul will continue to focus on developing existing relationships in key markets, as well as building on his practice as an appointment-taking insolvency practitioner.

Carl Jackson, managing partner at Quantuma, said: “In the two years that Paul has been with us, he has demonstrated his ability to generate the best returns for our clients, as well as building meaningful relationships and driving new business.

“The promotion is just reward for his accomplishments, not only in developing his personal practice, but the progress and initiative he has shown in promoting the wider firm in the alternative finance and fintech spaces.”

Paul Zalkin, partner at Quantuma, said: “For a mid-market restructuring and insolvency adviser there can be no better place to build a practice than at Quantuma – a uniquely dynamic and energetic firm with a fantastic range of complimentary services and a collaborative culture which adds real value to clients.

The firm’s services, values and people are a pleasure to work with and I’m proud to be a partner contributing to a great success story”.
