RSM appoints new office managing partner for Creditor Services operation

RSM, the leading audit, tax and consulting firm has appointed Robert Beat as its new office managing partner (OMP) for its Creditor Services operation at its London Finsbury Circus office. He takes over from Duncan Beat who has retired.

Robert Beat has a long and successful track record in creating and implementing creditor-friendly strategies for insolvency management. Over a 25-year period he has built the Creditor Services business from a small team to its current operation numbering some 70 financial professionals. 

Robert has established relationships with major banks, utilities, professional firms and others via a technology-driven approach which drives major productivity gains for RSM’s clients. The platforms Robert has developed include Tracker, Portfolio Risk Manager and Dividend Watch – offering creditors cutting edge risk management and strategic analysis.

Robert Beat said that the OMP role is a valuable opportunity to continue strong performance across the business: ‘We have established some unique technologies, processes and creditor strategies. The teams we now have in place are uniquely positioned to grow the bankruptcy service lines, secure new corporate appointments and provide valuable services to our clients and to the contracts we act for. We offer a complete service range, including our unique Tracker and Portfolio Risk Manager systems all the way through to insolvency claims management. The seamless transition between strategies that we are able to offer will become increasingly significant as the number of bankruptcies and corporate appointments grows during the next few years.’

Commenting on the appointment, Graham Bushby, partner and national head of Restructuring Advisory, said:

‘It has been exciting to see the level of innovation already achieved by the Creditor Services operation, and it’s good to know that Robert Beat will be leading our teams to further its ground-breaking achievements. Our services for major creditors are already leading the way, and this appointment will allow us to move further and faster.

‘Our thanks also go to Duncan Beat for all of his work and achievements. He has been a highly valued part of the RSM Creditor Services business, and we wish him well in retirement.’
