Portland promote long-serving manager to Associate Director

The South Coasts leading Business Recovery firm Portland has promoted Stewart Goldsmith to Associate Director.

Stewart joined Portland 16 years ago as an entry level Administrator, and then served as a Senior member of the Portland team for a number of years before taking on this new role. He has also passed his JIEB exams which is the highest obtainable qualification in the insolvency profession.

Managing Director of Portland Carl Faulds commented:

“We are very pleased to welcome Stewart into his new role at Portland. Over the years Stewart has proved that he has the right work ethic and temperament to deal with complex financial distress scenarios. The new role means Stewart will have an even greater involvement in directing cases and be pivotal in the decision making process. We have an experienced skilled team, strong presence in the South of England and an established brand which ensures Portland provides the best support and advice for our professional contacts and business owners. Stewart will now be key to ensuring this continues into the future.”

Stewart commented:

“The increasing number of appointments which we have seen in the past 18 months has meant that in order meet the needs of our introducers and business partners, staff are required to take on more responsibility. I am pleased that the board has faith in my abilities and has rewarded me with this new challenging role. My qualification has enabled me to accept my own appointments for a little over a year now which has been a personal goal of mine and I am fortunate that I have the team at Portland supporting me.”

Stewart’s promotion comes off the back of an office move to bigger and more versatile premises and a recruitment drive which has seen the processing team grow by a third.
