Duff & Phelps has boosted its global restructuring team with the appointment of Chris Coley as managing director.
Coley (pictured), who will be based in London, joins the global advisory firm after nine years at FTI Consulting within the firm’s corporate finance and restructuring practice.
He had previously trained within the corporate restructuring practice at ‘big four’ accountancy firm Ernst & Young.
“Coley has been involved in a number of high-profile restructuring assignments over the years, ranging from mid-market transactions to large complex financial restructuring engagements, with a strong focus on business reviews, liquidity management and corporate advisory across a wide range of industries and jurisdictions,” David Whitehouse, managing director and head of UK restructuring advisory for Duff & Phelps, said.
“This expertise will bring considerable strength to the team, not only in London but across the global restructuring advisory practice.”
Coley specialises in providing restructuring and turnaround advice to creditors, lenders, corporates and other stakeholders,
“I am delighted to be joining the team at Duff & Phelps and look forward to contributing to the continuing development of the practice,” he said.
“I believe I have joined the team at an incredibly exciting time where I can continue to focus on the mid-market in a major advisory role as the firm continues to grow in the UK and Europe.”
