Formerly KPMG’s UK restructuring practice, Interpath is a financial advisory business with a broad range of specialisms that helps organisations in financial distress. As such, it is currently building capacity to meet with heightened demand from businesses hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking on her new challenge, Cross said, “The world is changing rapidly… As we emerge from the Covid-19 crisis, I am optimistic that we will see a fast recovery, buoyed by an M&A frenzy that is already underway. But we will also see new and innovative deal structures and partnerships come to the fore, with organisations collaborating closely across sectors and platforms. It’s an exciting time, and I see enormous opportunity for the team here at Interpath to help drive real value.”

Cross brings a great deal of experience as an independent business advisor to Interpath. Previously the Director of Tesco – having been involved in the group’s private label – she established her company, Christine Cross Ltd, in June 2003. Since then she has worked with a range of global food and non-food retail and FMCG  businesses, and established a portfolio of Non Executive and Advisory Board roles, including Coca Cola European Partners, Hilton Food Group, Clipper Logistics, Zooplus AG and Oddbox.
