Portland Business & Financial Solutions The way forward, made brighter

Andy Barron

It may be day to day for me, but for the client it can be the most important thing in the world

I have worked for several Insolvency firms during my 14 years in the industry, ranging from large international organisations to small independent firms and in that time I have passed the CPI exam. I am able to draw on my experience of various different approaches to issues and their solutions to help directors and individuals through difficult times.  I understand that they may have no previous knowledge of insolvency processes so am always willing to spend the time to explain processes and put their minds at rest.

I began my career solely working on personal insolvency at a large firm dealing with a variety of cases from simple bankruptcies  to bespoke IVA’s involving 92 buy to let properties, and have spent the last 8 years predominantly working in corporate insolvency having dealt with the liquidation of a white goods retailer, a bankruptcy involving a multi million pound fraud and the administration of an investment company alleged to have defrauded 100 members of the public for £1.5 million.

Who I am

When I’m not working or running around after my 2 daughters,  I am a leader with a local scout troop that I have been with since I was 10, regularly camping, hiking, cycling and other activities.

I also play the French game Petanque, with a good level of success, achieving an England ranking of number 7 in 2011 with my triples team. I have been involved in the management of the game at regional level as the Southern Counties Petanque Association Competitions Secretary from 2010 to 2013, and am currently the treasurer for my local club.

Over the years I have also done many long distance walks for charity ranging from 26.5 miles across the Isle of Wight for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice to 40 Miles along the South Downs way. In aid of Action Medical Research for Children.
