In September 2017, Kris joined the Sheffield office of RBR Advisory – part of Begbies Traynor Group - as managing partner. He specialises in financial restructuring and turnaround, with over 15 years’ experience in the field.
Kris graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in Business Management. In 2000, he began working for an independent financial services firm in Sheffield, quickly taking up the role as manager within the administrations and receiverships team. During his time here, Kris completed his ACCA qualification.
In 2007, Kris founded Finance7 Ltd which specialises in company turnaround, business rescue, insolvency and financial restructuring, becoming a market leader in generating insolvency work. Through the business, Kris advised directors undergoing pre-pack administration on raising finance.
In 2011, Kris successfully passed his JIEB exams (Joint Insolvency Examination Board), becoming a licensed insolvency practitioner. In 2012, he took the role of national head of sales at Wilson Field, an insolvency firm specialising in advising companies looking to raise finance or restructure. He helped maintain Wilson Field’s top position for corporate appointment of UK independent practitioners.
As Kris grew up in Sheffield, the city is close to his heart. He believes that in a period of economic uncertainty due to Brexit, it is essential that businesses in Sheffield receive sound advice, whether this is on commercial finance, consulting or restructuring work.
