Helen Dale and Amaechi Nsofor are both internal promotions to partner. Chris McLean has been promoted to director and now leads the firm's debt advisory team in London. Grant Thornton's regional debt advisory team is led by Philip Stephenson, a director based in the firm's Manchester office.

We are investing to support our corporate, banking and investor clients to help them successfully navigate whatever challenges they are facing."
