Tom Bowes - ICS

Tom is an Associate Director here at ICS and is the newest member of the team. He heads up the Restructuring & Insolvency department, where he provides advice to businesses who find themselves facing financial difficulty. He is experienced in sourcing funding, restructuring organisations, and working on company turnaround to lead to the most positive outcomes possible. This can, of course, include administration and liquidation, but as Tom brings a very strategic approach to ICS, he works with Business Owners and Company Directors to help their organisations to avoid such measures where possible.

Whilst working in his former company, where he served for almost a decade upon graduating from university, Tom went from Trainee to Director, whilst working hard to build a portfolio of experience as well as his professional network. Having passed his IP exams in 2012, Tom activated his license and has been taking insolvency appointments since 2015. In wanting to join ICS, Tom did so having seen an opportunity to take his work to the next level in a company that shared his ambition for growth, success and the opportunity to further develop the range of services offered at ICS and promote brand identification.

Tom brings with him a large network of connections and works with accountants, funders, brokers and solicitors to ensure that the right relationships are formed with the right people to support clients - existing and new. He is frequently called on by his network to assist their clients who are in financial difficulty and need clear, straightforward advice. Tom’s relationships have been built on always being available on short notice, no matter how small or large the issue, delivering solutions in an environment which is always time pressured, sensitive and stressful.

In working hard all week, Tom loves his Saturdays to himself to go golfing, socialising and watching Rugby League. On Sundays, however, he shares in the interests of his better half, who he has recently married, usually spending a lot of time outdoors on the day of rest hiking around the Lake District. Having enjoyed his honeymoon on safari in Kenya and at the beach in Zanzibar, Tom is already looking forward to booking his next trip to his new found love of Africa.
