Corporate recovery specialist Duff & Phelps has continued its 2019 recruitment spree with the appointment of a new Managing Director in its Birmingham presence. Tyrone Courtman joins a growing team of senior professionals at the firm as Duff & Phelps continues regional expansion in the Midlands.

Consulting firm Duff & Phelps is a global provider of advisory services that aims to help clients protect, restore and maintain the value of their company; as such, the firm is often called upon to perform corporate rescue work. While the consulting firm is also responding to rising demand in its compliance offering, restructuring work takes up the lion’s share of the headlines concerning Duff & Phelps, particularly as the number of insolvencies in the UK has exploded since 2016. 

In that context, the firm has worked to bolster its team of experts significantly at the start of 2019. Earlier in the year, it hired Andy Murray as a new Managing Director for its compliance and regulatory practice. Close to that, the firm also appointed Ben Collett as a new Managing Director in its restructuring practice.
