Business advisory firm Quantuma has bolstered its Southampton team with the appointment of director, Kelly Semke (nee Mitchell).

Semke has over 20 years’ worth of experience in the business recovery and insolvency industry, having worked her way up the ranks at RSM Tenon to form part of the firm’s National Insolvency Practice management team. In 2013 Semke joined Quantuma as a founding partner where she headed up the Southampton office and played an instrumental role in the firm’s rapid growth.

After spending two years as a consultant at Neil Taylor Insolvency Kelly spent four years in the marine sector as finance director for Osprey Technical Consulting Limited, where she combined her finance qualifications and operational experience, to undertake a leading role in the management and growth of a thriving young business.

In her new role, Semke will support a broad range of businesses across Southampton and the South coast, while developing specialisms in the marine, manufacturing and retail sectors.

Quantuma’s Southampton team has seen several key appointments and promotions this year, including Philippa Robinson, as director in the firm’s Corporate Finance team, and promotion of Simon Campbell to a managing director role in April.

Kelly Semke, director at Quantuma commented: “Businesses across all sectors are experiencing a huge amount of turmoil and uncertainty as the impact of the Covid-19 continues to unfold. Quantuma is a growing advisory firm that is well-placed to support those businesses, and I am delighted to be rejoining the firm to offer my skills and experience to clients and assist them in working their way through the crisis.”

Carl Jackson, CEO at Quantuma added: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Kelly back to Quantuma. Her experience as a restructuring professional and specialist knowledge and experience will be invaluable to the firm as we continue to grow in Southampton and provide crucial advisory support to businesses.”
