“As we all continue to experience significant disruption in the insolvency and restructuring industry, it’s important we have the right mix of talent and depth of expertise in order to meet changing client demands. 

“Philip will be a great fit for the team, both culturally and through his strong and complementary skill-set.”

Mr Campbell-Wilson said he was looking forward to lending his experience to the growing Grant Thornton restructuring practice.

“I’m very excited to join a growing team that is highly regarded in the market,” Mr Campbell-Wilson said.

“The Australian restructuring industry is entering an important period of structural change that will be very challenging for those of us providing advice in this space.

“Being able to work with a leading restructuring team while also having the benefit of Grant Thornton’s full-service offering is more important than ever right now.

“Grant Thornton couldn’t be better placed to adapt and succeed in this dynamic and rapidly changing market."
