Restructuring consultancy Buchler Phillips has appointed Jo Milner as a Partner. The move sees her return to the firm after 25 years working at a range of large professional services firms, including PwC.

Commenting on the news, Buchler Phillips’ co-founder and Chairman David Buchler said, “It’s great to have Jo back with us as a Partner, completing the circle of her distinguished career path… As the UK plans its post-Covid return to work and government aid winds down, we are not surprised to see significant demand for our services, whether in business restructuring and turnaround, or administrations and insolvency. We look forward to working with Jo to support our clients as they work hard to build back better.”

Milner specialises in both corporate and personal insolvency work, with a particular interest in the administration of insolvent Credit Unions. She works closely with both the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, and has returned funds in excess of £33 million to some 13,500 Credit Union members.

Taking up a role as Partner, Milner’s arrival constitutes her second spell with the firm, having first joined some 25 years previously. After training in audit work with Grant Thornton, Milner joined Buchler Phillips as a Manager in 1991, spending more than four years with the company.

After that, she went on to gained valuable experience holding senior positions in leading firms including PwC, Grant Thornton, and Smith & Williamson. She then spent nine years as a Partner with Cork Gully, before spending the last 12 months as a Director with R2 Advisory.

As the effects of the recession caused by Covid-19 continue to be felt across all industries, restructuring is one of the few areas of business still to be thriving. Buchler Phillips is the UK’s oldest independent corporate recovery and restructuring firm, and Milner is the latest in a line of appointments it has made to meet the needs of more clients this year.
