With more than 30 years’ experience working with businesses and individuals in financial difficulty, Ruth understands the stresses and strains of dealing with debts, how to overcome them, and how to make a fresh start.
A recent President of the Insolvency Practitioners Association (insolvency practitioner regulator), Ruth is one of the UK’s leading female insolvency practitioners. Her drive and passion for ensuring that insolvency practitioners maintain the highest standards when working with businesses and individuals in financial difficulty sits at the heart of Ruth’s ethos, empathetic and holistic approach to businesses and individuals in debt.
When describing Ruth’s approach to businesses and individuals in financial difficulty, one accountant said:
“The most important thing about Ruth’s approach is she is professional, not pompous. She is sympathetic to clients who have problems, listening and finding solutions.”
Ruth entered the profession in the mid-1980s at the London office of Levy Gree (now Vantis) after a period working for the government’s Insolvency Service. After working with several firms (including Baker Tilly and Atherton Bailey), Ruth set up Maxwell Davies in 2003.
In her spare time Ruth enjoys archery and playing tennis and golf (extremely badly!)
