Eileen Maclean

Eileen Maclean

MA Hons MIPA MABRP MBA, Director

Eileen is a licensed insolvency practitioner with over 25 years’ experience of all aspects of personal and corporate insolvency.

Since 1999 Eileen has been providing bespoke support services to the insolvency and business community, including back office and technical support, compliance reviews and extensive training programmes. She is recognised for her thought leadership in the profession, and for spotting any opportunity that change presents.

Eileen specialises in complex issues and dispute resolution, where she combines detailed knowledge of the law with a pragmatic approach to get proven results. She excels in compliance and in the words of a peer, “what she doesn’t know about insolvency isn’t worth knowing”.

Eileen represented Scotland on R3’s National Council for six years. She continues to provide valuable input into government consultations and SIPs as a member of the R3 Scottish Technical Committee and her expertise is regularly called upon to provide technical solutions to Insolvency Practitioners.

In what little spare time she has, Eileen likes to dream about foreign holidays and joining the Great British Bake Off. She is also a renowned reverse parallel parker.

Jenny Penman has recently re-joined the Insolvency Support Services team as Training and Compliance Manager. She will primarily be responsible for ensuring that our suite of document packs and checklists as well as training materials are all updated as and when legislation changes or when professional guidance and ethical practices dictate.

Jenny started her journey through the insolvency profession in the early 1990s and has worked at various professional firms since then, including two of the Big 4. Throughout the years she has gained extensive experience in both corporate and personal insolvency.

Her spare time is either spent in her sewing room, walking her dog or on the golf course.

Kim RS Guthrie

Kim RS Guthrie


Kim is an Administrator with Insolvency Support Services. Her role includes handling client enquiries, liaising with clients, dealing with training course bookings, making arrangements for the delivery of courses, and keeping the firm’s client database up to date.

A highly experienced and skilled business administration professional, Kim has enjoyed a very varied career. Her most recent experience includes 11 years in client-facing customer service with a leading house builder and eight within a Big 4 accountancy firm’s restructuring practice. In the latter role she gained experience in both personal and corporate insolvency and held Personal Insolvency Team Leader and Case Closure Team Leader positions. Previously, she undertook a diverse range of management roles, including operations, human resources, purchasing and logistics, working with companies in the oil and gas, chemicals, and office supplies sectors. In addition to the UK, she has lived and worked in Belgium and France, and studied while living in Saudi Arabia.

Having originally read law at the University of Aberdeen, Kim has also obtained several ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) accountancy qualifications as well as the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency.

On the personal front, Kim spends as much time with her children as practicality allows, given that one lives in the Caribbean and the other in the Middle East. A bridge nerd (the card game, not the structure…), a perpetual beginner at golf, and a companion to her dog and daughter’s cat, she loves watching sport and hugely enjoys meeting up with friends and family.
