Matt Dunham

 "As a profession we are highly successful in saving jobs, realising assets and returning money to creditors – often in difficult circumstances. I believe we can be rightly proud of these achievements, but we need to work more closely with opinion formers to get our message across."

I have almost 25 years’ experience in insolvency and business restructuring and am currently a partner with Smith & Williamson  in the North West, specialising in Restructuring & Recovery.

I have been on R3’s NW committee for six years and was also a member of its Policy Group. For the last three years I have been Regional Chair, during which time I have campaigned to help raise awareness of insolvency issues and educate businesses and advisors in the North West about the benefits of using a qualified IP. My term came to an end in December 2010.

Matt is married with two young children
