A MEMBER of the corporate recovery and insolvency team at Cleckheaton-based Clough Corporate Solutions has passed key exams – and won two national prizes in the process.
Andrew Waudby (right) not only passed the three Joint Insolvency Examination Board exams, he achieved the highest mark in the personal insolvency paper and attained the highest mark overall for a candidate from a smaller-sized practice.
The qualification means he can now apply to become a fully licensed insolvency practitioner, after which he will be able to handle a full range of corporate and personal insolvency cases including administration, liquidation, company voluntary arrangements, bankruptcy and individual voluntary arrangements. He will also help to guide businesses through all types of possible financing paths.
Mr Waudby, who lives in Drighlington, joined Clough & Company in 2004, where he qualified as a chartered accountant before subsequently joining Clough Corporate Solutions in 2009.
He said: “I’ve spent many hours studying for the exams and have also gained vital practical experience over the last four years so I’m delighted that I have been able to qualify and repay Clough & Company for their support throughout my studies.
Chris Wood, head of Clough Corporate Solutions, said: “Passing the JIEB exams is a major achievement in itself and to come top in two areas is fantastic, summing up the level of determination and tenacity that translates into all areas of Andrew’s work.
“It also highlights our firm has the technical knowledge which together with our well known commercial acumen, allows us to provide quality solutions for our clients.”
