Partner at Poppleton and Appleby becomes Chair of R3 North West Regional Committee

Allan Cadman, Partner at Poppleton and Appleby, a business rescue and insolvency practise with offices in Manchester and Huddersfield, has become the Chair of R3 North West Regional Committee for a three-year term.

R3 is the trade association for the entire community of the UK’s insolvency and restructuring professionals, whatever the size of their practice, their experience or their specialism. R3’s members promote economic regeneration, resolve financial distress for businesses and individuals, save jobs, and create the confidence and public trust which underpin trading, lending and investment. In addition, R3 is also active in promoting and protecting the contribution made to the UK economy by members of the insolvency and restructuring profession, campaigning for positive changes to the insolvency and restructuring framework, and educating stakeholders and the general public on the value of the framework and the profession.

R3 has ten regional Committees which feed into the central office based in London. Allan’s role will be the focal point of the North West committees and represent the views of members. He will also play part in organising local, regional and national seminars, and other regional social and networking events.

Allan has been a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner since 2006. He has worked for Poppleton & Appleby in Manchester for over 35 years and specialises in all aspects of insolvency, recovery and turnaround issues. He works as a partner of the company alongside Stephen Wainwright and Charles Brook, who is himself on the Yorkshire region committee of R3.

Allan is honoured at his appointment and says he will serve with professionalism and respect, thanking outgoing Chair Paul Barber and newly appointed Vice Chair Jean Boldero. He says:

“I have personally been a member of the North West regional committee for a while, and I’m delighted to have been asked to act as Chair by my peers. I look forward to the challenges ahead, those we know about and those yet to present.”
