He qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Coopers & Lybrand in Leeds before developing his own specialist independent practice dealing with all aspects of insolvency and corporate recovery work.

He has significant experience in advising SMEs and their stakeholders, seeking innovative solutions to financial challenges – not least the latest challenge of COVID-19 distress.

Bob Maxwell
Managing Partner

Bob is a Managing Partner at Fast Track CVA. Prior to joining the firm, he was a Partner at Deloitte and Kroll and he has nearly 25 years’ restructuring and recovery experience.

He qualified as an ACA in 1990 and is a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner. He has led numerous cases, both domestic and international, incorporating turnaround assignments, financial restructuring and insolvencies.

His knowledge of CVA procedures – including traditional and fast track – is second to none. He advises company directors and stakeholders on a daily basis and helps businesses not only fight fires but to then prosper, grow and expand.

I hadn’t heard of a Fast Track CVA until my accountant recommended the procedure to me following our business struggles related to the Coronavirus pandemic. We knew our business was sound, but accrued tax and overheads during lockdown left us on the brink of collapse. Thankfully, the Fast Track CVA literally saved our business.
