James French

Corporate Insolvency Administrator

Current Role

In 2016 I moved to the Corporate Insolvency Team where I oversee the management of creditor claims, assist with the Section 100 meetings and organise case work schedules to ensure statutory deadlines are met.


I have been working in the financial services sector since 2008. While with Payplan my role changed from overseeing the smooth operation of Debt Management Plans to acting as liaison between the company and creditors. Starting with Bridgewood in 2014, I spent two years as the Senior Financial Advisor providing free, impartial advice to individuals and businesses.
