THM names Richard O’Dwyer as Partner

THM Partners, the restructuring boutique, is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard O’Dwyer as Partner.

Richard brings more than 25 years of restructuring experience to THM, having led many complex assignments across a number of sectors advising lenders and corporates. His experience in the oil and gas, refineries, retail, power, hotels, media and telecoms sectors includes 18 months as Group Finance Director of a carbon refinery business, overseeing its balance sheet restructuring and operational turnaround.

Richard joins THM from KPMG in London, where he was a Partner and spent two years as Head of Financial Restructuring. He will now focus on both Chief Restructuring Officer and Value Delivery mandates, utilising the breadth of experience he has obtained in guiding troubled businesses and their stakeholders through difficult restructuring processes.

His appointment, which is subject to regulatory approval, expands THM’s capability in the CRO and Value Delivery service lines.

Richard said: “I am excited to be joining THM, which pioneered the CRO role in the UK and is a market leader with a terrific track record. I am really looking forward to working in a specialist boutique with the benefits that brings in terms of independence and speed, to help clients in need.

This move represents a change of direction in my career but it was an easy decision to make, given THM’s unique approach and the difference we make to all stakeholders.”

Anthony Place, Co-Managing Partner of THM, said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard at this exciting time in our development. He has forged a long and successful career in the corporate restructuring world and has extensive experience across many sectors of business and industry. With Richard in our team, together with a number of other recent high-quality recruits, we are extremely well-placed to help companies solve the complex problems that arise out of financial challenges. "

THM continues to be busy on several CRO and Value Delivery mandates in some of Europe’s largest financial restructurings. The firm is expanding its capabilities across all sectors through the targeted recruitment of highly skilled executives to leverage its deep experience in anticipation of strengthening demand over the short and medium term.

The THM Difference delivers a unique approach to corporate restructuring, with small teams of experts working in a constructive way with all stakeholders to seek consensus and implement optimal solutions.
