Flint Bishop has announced the appointment of a head of debt services, who will oversee the continued growth of its national debt recovery and outsourced credit management operations.
Niall Gilhooley has joined the law firm having spent the last 13 years as operational lead of Irwin Mitchell’s specialist debt recovery business, Ascent.
His position as chief executive involved leading more than 200 employees in delivering outsourced credit management and litigation services to some of the UK’s leading financial institutions.
His new role as head of debt services will be centred around developing the existing operating model and operational resilience to deal with increased demand from high-profile clients.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining Flint Bishop at such an exciting time for the firm.
“The strategic vision for the firm is remarkable, and I am eager to begin developing the debt services range as we adapt to economic factors and other market opportunities, while continuing to exceed clients’ expectations with our core debt recovery operations.”
The firm’s debt services operation up until this point has been overseen by Flint Bishop’s chief executive, Qamer Ghafoor, who built the division from the ground up.
Qamer said: “Niall’s breadth of insight will prove invaluable as we look to further grow our already high-performing debts services.”
