As the Restructuring Leader for Western Canada, I bring a practical- and solutions-oriented approach to every client engagement. With 20 years of corporate insolvency experience behind me, I specialize in leading formal and informal insolvency proceedings—and have been involved in cases at all court levels, including the Alberta Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
A Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Insolvency Restructuring Professional, I have extensive experience dealing with both debtor companies and secured creditors. I work with boards of directors, management teams, senior lenders, mezzanine lenders and unsecured creditors across a wide range of industries—including oil and gas, investment funds, forestry, construction, agriculture, manufacturing, technology, real estate, hospitality, transportation and retail.
While I support all stakeholders across all aspects of insolvency, I specialize in helping insolvent businesses examine—and enhance—their operational, financial and capital-raising capabilities. When restructuring is the best path forward, I offer recommendations—and if bankruptcy is on the table, I investigate the nature of a company’s underperformance.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing and coaching soccer, participating in a good tennis match, playing chess, gardening in my backyard and reading.
