Quantuma expands its Glasgow team recruiting leading restructuring professional
Cross-border advisory firm Quantuma has appointed chartered accountant and restructuring advisory professional Alistair Dickson as a managing director in its Glasgow office.
Alistair joins Quantuma from a regional accounting firm where he was a director and head of Scotland. He has over 30 years’ professional experience in the restructuring sector and has held several senior positions, both in industry and in practice. He previously held senior roles at mid-tier and boutique professional services firms in Scotland. Prior to this he spent 12 years at National Australia Bank, where he headed up the UK restructuring, distressed lending and leveraged credit teams.
Alistair’s extensive experience includes sanctioning leveraged debt and working with businesses with financial concerns. He is therefore well placed to support businesses which are exhibiting early signs of distress, using his wide experience to assist in finding a solution.
Alistair Dickson joins Quantuma’s Glasgow office, working alongside managing directors Ian Wright and Scott Milne to develop the firm’s Glasgow-based Restructuring Advisory practice and further grow the team.
Alistair Dickson said: “I am delighted to have joined Quantuma to support further growth in Scotland as the firm accelerates its already impressive expansion.
“I was attracted by the quality and profile of work the Quantuma team undertakes, as well as the collaborative approach the firm encourages for its client engagements. The firm’s drive and ambition are very impressive and I am pleased to be playing an active role in its expansion.
“I am looking forward to further developing the Glasgow based Restructuring Advisory team and to supporting our business clients across Scotland in this challenging economic climate.”
Quantuma chief executive officer, Carl Jackson, said: “As we look to accelerate our growth story, having just surpassed our tenth anniversary and following recent investment from the European arm of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., I am delighted to welcome Alistair to the firm, who joins us to further enhance our restructuring advisory capabilities.
“We have built a highly regarded multi-disciplinary team in the UK, and I am delighted that Alistair has chosen to join us. I look forward the contribution he will make in developing and growing our Glasgow-based restructuring advisory practice.”
