FRP Advisory promotes two to director

Business advisory firm FRP Advisory has strengthened its UK operation with the promotions to director of Emily Ball and Yasmin Bikha, both based in the Leicester and Nottingham offices.

Ball and Bikha are experienced restructuring advisers with broad connections across the East Midlands and both are licensed insolvency practitioners and qualified accountants.
Both are promoted from senior manager to director after each completing six years at FRP Advisory’s Leicester office. 
The promotions bring to six the number of partners and directors across FRP Advisory in the East Midlands offices of Leicester and Nottingham, and to 10 within the Midlands region including Birmingham. 
Chris Stirland, partner at FRP Advisory, says: “The welcome promotions of Emily and Yasmin, who bring a combined 20 years of corporate recovery and restructuring experience to the senior management of FRP Advisory, and are a response to increased client demand for their expertise in advising across industry sectors throughout the East Midlands, and their deep understanding of both business owners and managers, advisors and the lending and investment communities across the wider Midlands and central England regions.
“At FRP Advisory we value the diversity of our workforce but ultimately clients judge us without fear or favour according to the quality of our advice and in Emily and Yasmin we are privileged to have consummate professionals who achieve results for our clients. 
“Their skills, combined with their strong relationships locally with accountants and solicitors together with national and regional businesses and banks, will enable us to continue to strengthen the full breadth of services that FRP Advisory is able to provide to both company management and the full range of high street banks, asset based lenders and other finance houses.”
Ball has over a decade’s experience in corporate restructuring experience including the past six years with FRP Advisory. A qualified accountant and member of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), Ball joined FRP Advisory as assistant manager in 2011 after an initial career with another regional insolvency and restructuring firm.
Bhika focuses on corporate insolvency and recovery work and has over a decade’s experience in financial and corporate advisory across the full spectrum of business recovery work. Bhika joined FRP Advisory in November 2010 as a senior administrator, after working for four years within the insolvency team of a regional East Midlands firm, advising on both personal and corporate insolvencies.
