Congratulations Aiko

We are very pleased to announce that Aiko Wang of Rodgers Reidy NSW office has been registered as a Trustee in Bankruptcy.

She is now a Registered Trustee and a Registered Liquidator.

It’s been a good start for Aiko following an article in the CAANZ Acuity Magazine which recognised her amongst 20 young chartered accountants in Australia reaching significant achievements and breaking down barriers in their chose careers.  A link to the article is below.

Rodgers Reidy are leaders in gender equality and diversity and note that 30% of Rodgers Reidy’s Liquidators are female, compared to the industry average of 9%.

We congratulate Aiko on her achievements.

Small Business Restructuring

During the month of January 2023, 48 companies appointed a Restructuring Practitioner in relation to the Debtor in Possession restructuring process for small businesses.

Rodgers Reidy is the leading appointee for appointments in relation to Small Business Restructuring.  We have achieved excellent results for our clients, restructuring their businesses and saving the vast majority from a formal liquidation or administration. We urge directors to consider this an option and act early.  Feel free to contact your local Rodgers Reidy office to discuss whether this option is right for your clients.
