A Roaring Success: The TMA Europe Annual European Conference in Madrid

In June, the EACTP attended the TMA Europe Annual European in Madrid. By all accounts it was a roaring success and we were pleased to see a good turnout of members. The two day conference provided some excellent networking opportunities and we were pleased to host a CTP roundtable and panel discussion where Alberto Cerini, Volker Beissenhirtz, Vlad Nastase and Boudwijn Wellink share some of their turnaround experiences and insights from real-life projects. It was also gratifying to see Alan Tilley receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for his many years of hard work driving the EACTP forward.

CIGA Report: Another Step in the Right Direction

Towards the end of June, the Government published the results of a study that reviewed the operation of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act (CIGA) 2020’s three permanent measures. The EACTP contributed to the report, making the case for CTPs to be recognised as moratorium monitors, and it was pleasing to see this input was considered, albeit with a qualified acceptance that accredited turnaround professionals could have a positive role in the moratorium.

Farewell and Thank You to Volker Beissenhirtz

In July, Volker Beissenhirtz announced his decision to step down from the EACTP Board to pursue new challenges. As one of the association’s longest serving Board members, Volker has been instrumental in the EACTP’s success and deserves recognition, not least for his work in developing the Certified Turnaround Analyst course and leading the mammoth task of compiling the Legal BOK. Without doubt, Volker’s support over the years has been a critical factor in the EACTP’s momentum and we owe him immense gratitude.
