If you are struggling with unmanageable debts, it’s vital you are able to work with a practice who will be honest about what is achievable and then hopefully exceed your expectations with their efforts. Feedback from clients can be read in our Case Studies section.

We employ a team of 22 people from our offices in Old Trafford, many of whom have been with and built their careers with us over a long period of time. Please click on our individual profiles to learn more about the management team at the Debt Advisor.

MD The Debt Advisor Ltd

I was very fortunate to have spent 17 years honing my insolvency skills and experience with Deloittes in Manchester. I founded the business which is now The Debt Advisor “TDA”  and The Business Debt Advisor “TBDA” in 1999 and over the past 16 years have pulled together a team of fabulous professionals who demonstrate on a daily basis that “we do the right thing” not only for our clients, but also for creditors and for the team.

Debt Management Manager

I joined The Debt Advisor “TDA” in June 2014 as manager of the Debt Management team.  I was eager to bring my knowledge and expertise to TDA and was tasked with steering TDA through the challenges of regulation by The Financial Conduct Authority.

I get great enjoyment in developing people and one of my contributions has been the recruitment and training of a number of very talented apprentices. I also am passionate about helping people; I started my career as a volunteer at my local Citizens Advice Bureau, followed by a number of roles within Fairpoint Group Plc where I gained my Cert DR qualification.

Personal Insolvency Assistant Manager

I work within the IVA team as an Assistant Manager and I guess I am proof that The Debt Advisor “TDA” Do the right thing for their team. I first started working for TDA when I was 17 and still at college helping with admin chores. I joined fulltime a year later in August 2006 and over the past 9 years I have worked primarily with the IVA and The Business Debt Advisor teams but have also covered cashiering roles. TDA has supported me through my studies including Cert DR, CPPI as well as the CPI which I started when on maternity leave earlier in 2015 and passed in August 2015.

When I am not elbow deep in case studies and annual reports or helping my colleagues deal with complex cases, I very much enjoy spending time with my husband and our gorgeous daughter who will be 2 in April 2016.

Advisory Manager

I joined the advisory team at The Debt Advisor “TDA” in 2006 and found my forte’ in life. I adore being able to help individuals. As TDA attract a wide variety of referrals, I have over the years been able to work with so many different individuals and help them develop a plan for the future. I have headed up the advisory team since 2010 and have built up a very capable and caring team. I am fluent in Polish and have helped develop TDA’s offering to the Polish community in England and Wales.

When I am not advising, I love spending time with daughter aged 3 and my husband. I caught the travelling bug whilst on a gap year after university and I have recently visited Poland, Montenegro, Greece and Sweden.

Assistant Insolvency Manager

I head up The Business Debt Advisor team “TBDA” which looks after a wide mix of cases including corporate insolvencies, complex IVA’s for self employed individuals including barristers, solicitors and entrepreneurs as well as bankruptcies. I started my career in insolvency with Mitchell Charlesworth in 2007 and joined TBDA in March 2010.  I passed the CPI, had a 2 year spell with Bridgestones Insolvency Specialists, and rejoined TBDA in June 2014.

When I am not tackling complex insolvencies, I enjoy joining my family for weekend breaks in the Lakes and taking our golden Labrador (Izzy) for long walks around the stunning Bassenthwaite Lake.  I also take a keen interest in baking!
