Duff & Phelps has promoted five new Managing Directors across its London operations. Dan Nolan, Kristina Isert, Paul Nash, Ioan Peters and William Rimington have been elevated, as the firm prepares for a new era of growth.

Amid the current Covid-19 lock-down, and the market slump which it has exacerbated, one of the few areas of business which seems to be booming is restructuring. Specialist consultancies such as Duff & Phelps are subsequently seeing a spike in demand for their insolvency-related services, something which means they seem to be one of the few lines of work currently recruiting and promoting talent. To that end, Duff & Phelps has announced it has promoted five colleagues in London to the Managing Director level. The move comes as part of 32 such promotions globally.

Mathias Schumacher, Duff & Phelps’ London City Leader, commented on the news, “We continue to invest in our talented team at Duff & Phelps in London. Our clients are increasingly seeking expert advice to help them navigate their complex challenges, and our new cohort of MDs in London and globally will form a valuable part of our future strategy and growth.”
