Quantuma continues to grow UK presence with new director hire

Business advisory firm, Quantuma, has appointed Lee Brocklehurst as director at its Nottingham office.

Lee is the latest in a series of appointments by Quantuma, as part of its ongoing growth plans. Earlier this year the firm announced a series of managing director appointments including Tim Sloggett, in Bristol, and Robert Beat and Dina Devalia joined the firm’s London office.

Joining from RSM, Lee has over 25 years’ experience in restructuring and insolvency, working across a diverse range of accountancy practices and insolvency boutiques. As well as advising SMEs and large corporates, Lee has extensive experience advising individuals facing personal financial issues.

Lee has led assignments for businesses in sectors which includes engineering, hospitality, and business services, including an accelerated merger and acquisition process in administration of a substantial PR firm and the administration of an engineering business.

Lee also volunteers as a mentor for young professionals looking to break into the advisory community. He acts as a professional mentor at Birmingham City University, giving industry insight to graduates. In February 2022, he joined the ACCA’s Leicestershire Members Network Panel to help ACCA create member communities, build connections, and promote the accountancy profession across all sectors and regions of the UK.

In his role as director, Lee will be based in Quantuma’s Nottingham office, providing restructuring advice to businesses in financially distressed situations. Lee will be working to enhance Quantuma’s position as the Midland’s market-leading, full-service business advisory firm.

Lee Brocklehurst, director at Quantuma, said: “Businesses across the Midlands are dealing with unprecedented economic pressures. As part of my new role at Quantuma, I’m already working with several businesses to advise on options to address their financial challenges. I am delighted to be working with a growing team here in the Midlands and look forward to playing my part in developing our presence in the region.”

Taz Rashid, managing director at Quantuma, said: “I am delighted to welcome Lee to our growing team here in Nottingham. Lee brings substantial additional experience and a skillset to the team which will strengthen our advisory offering to both the region’s professional advisory community and businesses in the Midlands.”
