"Marketing forms a key part of our growth strategy, and Matthews skillset and proactive and focused approach make him ideally suited for the role"
Forensic accounting and insolvency practice Inquesta has recruited a marketing manager as it gears up for its next phase of growth.
Matthew Titcomb has relocated from London to Manchester to join Inquesta in a new role for the business.
He was previously a marketing executive at Hanson Wade, a conference organiser and provider of data products and services based in the capital.
Matthew, pictured, has a Bachelor of Arts degree in marketing and marketing management from the University of Exeter and a master’s degree in marketing from the University of Bath.
Inquesta director Rob Miller said marketing is key to the growth plans of the firm, which has its headquarters in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, and a presence in Leeds and London.
He said Inquesta is gearing up for an influx of corporate insolvency cases due to the economic impact of the coronavirus crisis.
The firm is also anticipating a surge in demand for its forensic accounting expertise as cases of alleged fraud concerning furlough claims and Bounce Back loans emerge from the Covid-19 crisis.
Matthew will work alongside Rob, co-director Steven Wiseglass and the rest of the Inquesta team to develop and implement a marketing strategy aimed at helping the firm to grow market share in its specialist fields.
Rob said: “With a spike in corporate insolvencies on the horizon, and a greater need for advising distressed businesses and helping them to restructure and navigate through the choppy economic waters ahead, as well as alleged fraud cases arising from the current crisis, this is a vital time to have Matthew on board.
“Marketing forms a key part of our growth strategy, and Matthew’s skillset and proactive and focused approach make him ideally suited for the role.
“His appointment is a major step forward in the evolution of the business. Our brand is already well-known, and our strategy will enable us to attract bigger, better quality work and to attract the best people to accompany us on our journey as we expand.”
Matthew said: “I’ve been impressed by the compassionate and pragmatic approach Inquesta takes towards insolvency cases and I’m excited by the prospect of helping the firm to gain wider recognition and expand its market presence.
“The opportunities created by the current disruption offer interesting challenges and enable the team to explore new and exciting directions.
“Despite the exceptional circumstances, the team have been fantastic and made me feel right at home with the warmest of socially-distanced welcomes.”
