As a licensed insolvency practitioner with deep knowledge of both advisory and executory assignments Callaghan has experience across a range of industries, including property, waste management, automotive, mining, retail, care homes, casual dining and manufacturing. FTI hopes this impressive CV will enhance the firm’s insolvency offering at a time of high demand for turnaround and restructuring services.

Simon Granger, a Senior Managing Director and the EMEA Head of Corporate Finance & Restructuring at FTI Consulting, said, “I am very pleased to welcome Matt to our growing Restructuring practice to lead our mid-market and insolvency offering. Matt is highly regarded within the market, bringing with him expansive experience of restructuring and insolvency situations, an extensive network and a strong reputation for excellence in working with stakeholders in complex and pressured situations.”

FTI Consulting has built a solid reputation in the insolvency industry, and was named Corporate Restructuring Firm of the Year (4-10 licensed appointment-taking Insolvency Practitioners category) at the Turnaround, Restructuring & Insolvency Awards 2019, along with numerous other industry recognitions. As it looks to enhance this reputation further, FTI has been undergoing a raft of changes in recent months. At the turn of the year, this saw the firm use January as an opportunity to reward a number of staff across its network.
