Interpath Advisory boosts Advisory business with three senior hires

Federica Taccogna and Nigel Webb appointed Managing Directors, alongside new director David Tull

Interpath Advisory, the independent financial advisory business, has announced three senior hires to its fast-growing Advisory practice as the firm continues to invest in its suite of service offerings.  

The appointments include two new Managing Directors: Federica Taccogna and Nigel Webb, who both join Interpath from FTI Consulting; and David Tull, who most recently worked on behalf of Berkeley Research Group and who joins Interpath as a director.

The trio join Interpath’s fast-growing Forensic practice led by Dominic Wreford, who joined the business in September 2021 with a mandate to build and develop Interpath’s Disputes, Investigations and Forensic Technology service lines.

Federica and Nigel will specifically lead Interpath’s new Regulatory Advisory practice, advising both organisations and regulators on matters of conduct, with a focus on sectors including gambling, online gaming, crypto and the payments sector.

Blair Nimmo, chief executive of Interpath Advisory commented: “These arrivals represent another exciting milestone in the growth and development of our business. Moreover, we believe this significant investment makes a real statement of intent, demonstrating to the market the strength of our ambition in this space.”

Dominic Wreford, managing director and head of Interpath’s Forensic practice, added: “Our ambition has always been to develop a market-leading forensic practice with a truly global footprint.

“Federica, Nigel and David bring with them deep experience in assisting clients and regulators from around the world on a wide range of issues, including matters of conduct such as market abuse, governance and regulatory frameworks. Their international focus will see them expand Interpath’s capabilities overseas, as well as boosting the firm’s work in fields such as gambling, online gaming, crypto and the payments sector.”
