Chris Dougray is joining us to head up our Edinburgh office and expand our national recovery service capabilities.
Chris joins us from DTZ, where he was Head of Corporate Recovery Services in Edinburgh. He was previously Scottish Managing Partner for Donaldsons. He will be working closely with the North Regional Director, David Smith, to further develop and grow our presence in Edinburgh.
Strong corporate recovery and restructuring background
David said: “We are delighted to welcome Chris to focus on developing our business and strengthening our client relationships in Edinburgh. Chris’ experience with corporate recovery and restructuring, and his existing relationships within the banking sector, will support our UK wide strategy very well.
“Edinburgh is the UK’s largest financial centre outside London. The influence of the banks located there is a key strategic target of our business."
Chris said: “This is an exciting time to be joining LSH; the business has a strong and growing reputation and I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success.”
The appointment comes shortly after the announcement that DTZ’s Head of Corporate Finance, John Knowles, will be heading up our Capital Markets Division.
