Profile

Mark Byers (Global Head of Restructuring and Head of UK Advisory)

I am a member of the UK firm’s strategic leadership team and have specific responsibility for strategic client relationships.  At Grant Thornton our people are recognised for their ability to think laterally, challenge constructively and act collaboratively to help our clients succeed. My job is to build on those skills and capabilities to ensure that we establish and maintain deep and long lasting relationships which are valued by our key clients.

For the past 25 years, I’ve been advising major companies and their stakeholders on how to manage change in difficult and uncertain circumstances. It’s challenging work which involves helping companies to resolve difficult lending situations and to deliver complex, cross-border restructuring solutions in Europe, North America and Asia.  Since 2004 I have led our restructuring services on a global basis.

I also work with major financial institutions and their regulators – from the European Commission to the International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank – on supporting restructuring strategies designed to promote financial stability following the global financial crisis and the challenges faced by the financial sector in the eurozone.

Qualifications:

  • FCA (Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales)

  • Licensed Insolvency Practitioner
