Stuart Gardner has joined EY’s Channel Islands Transactions Advisory team as a director, responsible for liquidations and strategic exit routes services.
Mr Gardner will be the first fully licensed appointment taking UK insolvency practitioner of a "big four" accountancy firm in the Channel Islands. An Oxford graduate and chartered accountant, he joins EY with almost a decade of experience working in the Channel Islands’ professional services industry.
Mr Gardner is well-versed in managing restructuring engagements in the Channel Islands where he has returned more than $2 billion to investors. His Channel Islands and UK restructuring experience is across asset classes and jurisdictions, including both solvent and insolvent liquidations, receiverships and administrations. He has also led a number of other advisory engagements for local trust and corporate administration businesses.
Alongside his considerable professional experience, Mr Gardner is a founder member of the Legal and Regulatory Committee of the Channel Islands’ Association of Restructuring and Insolvency Experts – a member association of INSOL. He is also a member of R3 (Association of Business Recovery Professionals) and frequently contributes his expertise to industry through speaking engagements.
Andrew Dann, Channel Island Managing Partner at EY said: “Our Transaction Advisory team works across Guernsey, Jersey and the UK, providing our clients with exceptional service and experience of liquidations and restructuring across all industries. We are seeing an increased appetite for mergers and acquisitions, as well as strategic voluntary wind ups – all at a time when the Channel Islands’ insolvency regimes are under review.
“Stuart will be in the unique position of being the only fully licensed appointment taking insolvency practitioner within a "big four" firm in the Channel Islands. He will be working closely with our London practice and brings with him a wealth of experience from working on corporate insolvencies in the UK, which is complemented further by his unparalleled Channel Islands experience.”
