New firm aims to beat recession

AN EXPERIENCED finance expert is ‘excited and nervous’ after opening a new business this week, designed to help people cope with the recession.

Sam Hawkins, aged 37, has set up her own insolvency practice in Wrington after working for some of world’s leading financial firms over the past eight years.

The licensed firm, called Hawkins and Company, is based in Havyat Business Park and opened on Monday.

It will offer advice and support to those in financial difficulty. A second office is also being set up in Bridgend.

Ms Hawkins, who was recognised as a rising star in the industry last year, said: “I have set it up by myself and will try to assist people with their debt problems, not just for the individuals involved but businesses who are finding the recession difficult.”

She said: “It is a very human job. I meet people in very difficult situations and I take great pride in helping them and giving them a light at the end of the tunnel.”
