Hawkpoint builds restructuring team

Reacting to the industry’s growing desire for restructuring specialists, corporate advisory business Hawkpoint Partners has recruited a new restructuring director.

Shaun Holmes joins Hawkpoint from Royal Bank of Scotland where he spent over 23 years in restructuring from both a debt and equity perspective.

His roles in RBS included managing director within the equity finance team, head of the bank’s European mezzanine and strategic investment portfolio and head of the project finance power portfolio.

Hawkpoint is one of the many firms to focus on restructuring in 2009. Turnaround advisory firm Alvarez & Marsal, law firm Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker and August & Co have all hired restructuring specialists this year.
