CVR Global strengthens partner team with Charles Turner appointment

CVR Global has strengthened its partner team with the appointment of a vastly-experienced senior insolvency and restructuring professional.

Charles Turner has joined the insolvency, restructuring, forensic services, fraud investigation and asset tracing firm, and will be based out of CVR Global’s London office.

Turner spent 23 years with PwC and after leaving the firm in 2010 was one of the founding partners of FRP Advisory and opened its Bristol office.

Turner, a licensed appointment taker since 2000, has acted in a wide range of matters including as liquidator of part of the Enron group of companies.

He is well-known for his specialist advisory, partnership and personal insolvency expertise and has had a particular focus on financially stressed professional practices for several years, both in advisory as well as formal insolvency roles.

Turner said: “CVR Global is a well-respected firm which is growing its reputation and has solid plans in place to continue to expand. I’m looking forward to being part of this.

“During my career I’ve acted on a number of high-profile as well as contentious personal insolvencies, and also distressed professional practices which will be among the areas I will be focussing on at CVR Global.

“I’m also actively involved in dealing with tax avoidance matters. I currently sit on the R3 tax working group, alongside members of HMRC’s counter-avoidance team. This will also be another important area of my work.”

Turner is a former President of the Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) and Chief Examiner of insolvency professional exams. He chairs the Education Courses and Conferences Committee for R3 and also serves as an Elected Representative on the R3 Council.

Richard Toone, Managing Partner of CVR Global, added: “Charles is an excellent addition to our partner team and we’re delighted to welcome him to the firm.

“Charles has a fantastic track record of success over nearly 30 years in the insolvency and restructuring industry and is well known for his expertise in many areas in which the firm is growing our share of the market.

“We’re approaching two years since we launched CVR Global and we’re proud of our achievements during this time. We look forward to Charles being part of the continued expansion of the firm.”

CVR has seven office across the UK in London, Hove, Southampton, Colchester, Birmingham, Northampton and Jersey, and international offices in Gibraltar and the British Virgin Islands.

The firm is a member of Geneva Group International (GGI), which is consistently ranked among the top ten professional services associations in the world and has more than 500 members and over 700 member offices worldwide.
