Matthew Hallowell Trainee Insolvency Administrator

Matthew Hallowell – Trainee Insolvency Administrator

Matt joined us initially on a short term contract and proved his worth immediately, showing great initiative in a role which was completely alien to him.  He has an inquisitive nature and has shown a natural talent for the investigation work we undertake, so good in fact we persuaded him to stay.  We are sure he will go far in the insolvency industry.

Matt is a long suffering Arsenal fan as are quite a few of the BBR staff including the boss which shows a worrying trend.
