By CreditMan Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Harrisons Business Recovery and Insolvency has appointed experienced insolvency professional Carrie James as a Manager at its Worcester office. Carrie was chosen for her wealth of experience in insolvency, including business turnaround and rescue.

Carrie, who recently qualified as an insolvency practitioner, will be based at Foregate Street, Worcester, has worked in insolvency for 17 years, 13 of which have been at management level across corporate and personal insolvency working with SMEs across the West Midlands. She has managed a portfolio of cases across all insolvency disciplines and has a strong track record of trading administrations across the retail, hospitality, construction and manufacturing sectors, which have resulted in numerous business sales and jobs being saved.

A member of the Insolvency Practitioners Association, Carrie is also an Area Council Member for the Hereford and Worcester Chamber of Commerce.

In her spare time, Carrie enjoys running, hill walking and mountain biking. She recently tested her fitness and endurance in the Mud Runner Oblivion, a gruelling six-mile cross country race at Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire and is currently in training to compete again this year.

Louise Hookham, Director at Harrisons, said: “I am delighted to welcome Carrie to the team. Her enthusiasm and experience is exactly what we need to grow the business. She will build on Harrisons’ presence in Worcester and more widely across the West Midlands, bring additional work to the practice and continue brand growth.”

Carrie James, Manager at Harrisons, said: “I’m excited to join Harrisons. The Worcester office has gained a solid reputation over the years and I am looking forward to growing our business in this region.”

Carrie is also joined by Ruth Phillips who will be assisting her with all aspects of insolvency and turnaround together with the smooth running of the Worcester office.
