Insolvency specialist and coach joins DSW Business Recovery

Jonathan, who has over 25 years of experience as an insolvency professional and business consultant, will work on all aspects of business recovery and restructuring while also helping to develop the team and expand the client base.

Jonathan started his career in accountancy before qualifying as an insolvency practitioner and setting up his own firm, which he later sold to a national insolvency practice in 2012. Having seen first-hand the pressures facing businesses, in 2014, he launched Lunesdale Business Consulting to provide them with a wider package of support. In addition to his work in restructuring, he also acted as a consultant and mentor to help leaders develop the strategies and skills required to address their challenges and improve performance.

Jonathan, whose qualifications include an MBA and a PGCE teaching qualification, is also an associate lecturer at the University of Cumbria.

Jonathan said: “DSW Business Recovery has provided me with an exciting new role that utilises my broad range of skills and experience to transform organisations and support leaders to navigate better the strategic challenges they face in an increasingly turbulent world.”

Lisa Moxon, partner at DSW Business Recovery, adds: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan, who brings wide-ranging experience, not only in turnaround and restructuring but in the broader area of business transformation. His skills will be invaluable, both in the work we do with clients and in helping to develop the team as we continue to build our business.”
