Marcus Tout - Insolvency Practitioner
Marcus graduated from Portsmouth University in 2004 with a Ba(Hons) in Business Studies. Shortly after he commenced training as an Insolvency Administrator with BKR Haines Watts and then continued his training with Portland Business & Financial Solutions Limited.
In 2008 Marcus joined Tenon, a top 10 UK accountancy firm. In 2011 Marcus qualified as an Insolvency Practitioner and was subsequently promoted to Associate Director. In September 2013 RSM Tenon merged with Baker Tilly. The firm continued to grow and in 2015 became RSM, an international firm of accountants and business advisors, ranked 7th largest accountancy practice in the UK.
Throughout his career Marcus has specialised in Members’ Voluntary Liquidations (“MVLs"). He was a member of RSM’s MVL working party and partner focus group whose role was to continuously develop and improve the firm’s offering.
In 2019 Marcus became a licensed Insolvency Practitioner. With a passion for delivering exceptional client service, Marcus was eager to start up a firm of Insolvency Practitioners that focused solely on providing MVLs to small companies. With the support of long-term friend Jon Green and his business partner Matthew Gair, Approved Recovery Limited was born.
