Business advisory firm Quantuma has appointed Robert Beat as managing director to its growing London team.
In his new role at Quantuma, Beat will be based in the firm’s London office, with a UK-wide remit.
He will take on a “hybrid role” by building relationships with lawyers, accountants, and asset-based lenders, as well as working directly with businesses in sectors such as utilities and telecommunications. Additionally, he will provide support to Quantuma’s creditor services team.
Beat joins the firm with over 30 years’ experience in the insolvency industry, having previously worked at Baker Tilly Creditor Services, part of the RSM UK Group, for the past two decades. He also led and set up insolvency departments at Cape and Dalgleish and Morison Stoneham, spearheading a wide range of projects and initiatives.
Quantuma said Beat has reportedly been responsible for managing some of the “largest client portfolios” in the UK.
During his career in Restructuring and Insolvency, Beat has been “instrumental in the development of unique systems”, said Quantuma. This reportedly includes business and portfolio risk management tools, and a solution to manage all types of insolvency claims.
In the last year, Quantuma has experienced staff growth of 45% boasting a 273-strong team, up from 188 in 2020.
The firm has also expanded its international presence with the hire of Poland-based managing director Adam Markiewicz and with the opening of its first base in the Middle East, led by managing director Yaser Dajani in Dubai.
Beat said: “I am delighted to be joining such a rapidly growing team and look forward to working with Quantuma to expand its business relationships and growing its Creditor Services offering. The firm is at an exciting moment in its journey as it expands into key locations across the globe.”
Carl Jackson, CEO at Quantuma, said: “We are extremely pleased to bring Robert aboard.
“His long career in the industry will undoubtedly bring significant value to the team, especially boosting our relationships with existing and future clients, particularly asset-based lenders, finance houses, accountants, and lawyers and will be invaluable to Quantuma’s continued growth journey.”
