Quantuma opens office in Eastbourne, 6th in the South East

22 November 2018 Authored by Consultancy.uk

Business advisory firm Quantuma has strengthened its South East presence with the launch of a new office in Eastbourne. The new facility will be led by Partners Maxine Reid and Sean Bucknall, and will offer corporate finance, commercial funding, restructuring, investigations, forensic accounting and litigation support to clients in the region.

Corporate recovery and business advisory firm Quantuma has seen a busy 2018, as a number of previously up-and-coming UK businesses have floundered amid difficult trading conditions. Kicking on from its recently celebrated  fifth anniversary, the firm reported a strong financial performance, with turnover for the year to 31 March 2018 having risen to £10.4 million, an increase of 10% on 2017 levels. With offices in London, Southampton, Bristol, Marlow, Watford, Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Ringwood and Weymouth, in July 2018, the firm also opened two new international offices in Cyprus thanks to heightened demand.

Quantuma has been expanding at home as well as abroad, however. Having been tapped to oversee the turnaround of BCF Plumbing, administration of British-based mobile phone maker WileyFox, and the sale of Chelsea Apps Factory, the consultancy has been working to expand its headcount and bolster its capacity to meet the expanding expectations of its clients. In October this saw the firm add to a growing list of new arrivals with two new Partners in its London headquarters.

Now, Quantuma has added to its UK capacity with the opening of its twelfth presence in the country, and its sixth in the South East. Opened in November 2018, the new office is located at The Old Printworks in Eastbourne’s town centre. According to a release from the firm, the facility will provide a full range of services, including corporate finance, commercial funding, restructuring, investigations, forensic accounting and litigation support.

The Eastbourne office will be headed by Partners Maxine Reid and Sean Bucknall. Reid joined Quantuma earlier in 2018, following a six-year stay with Kreston Reeves, where she was most recently a Restructuring & Recovery Partner. Bucknall meanwhile has been with Quantuma for five years now, and became a Partner in 2018.

Maxine Reid said of the news, “Our new Eastbourne base is part of our long-term strategy to grow our presence across the UK, as well as globally. As a whole, the South East is the fastest growing area after London and is home to the second largest regional economy in the UK. As a team, we have in-depth understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing businesses across the region. We look forward to continuing to provide first-class restructuring solutions and wider advisory services to the local business community.”
