Meet our Team
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.
A specialist in insolvency law and regulation in England and Wales, Alison has a proven track record of regulatory drafting, innovation, project management and implementation of organisational change.

She is a licensed insolvency practitioner from a small practice background, specialising in bankruptcy investigations, bespoke IVA and CVA drafting and SME restructuring. Formerly a partner in a small practice, she joined the Insolvency Practitioners Association in 2010, where she became Head of Regulatory Standards & Support in 2012.

Louise has recently re-joined the ISS team in a Manager role, having been our first ever ISS employee. She will have a particular focus on outsourced client work.
Louise started working in the insolvency profession in 2005 and passed JIE in 2013. Her experience covers personal and corporate appointments, and she has extensive experience in the management of outsourced contracts and reviewing systems and operating manuals for improved efficiencies and compliance. Colleagues described Louise as a team player, always at hand to roll up her sleeves and undertake any work required to assist the team as a whole to achieve their objectives.
Louise’s spare time is spent entertaining her young family and dog. She can be found travelling in her motorhome from time to time and won’t say no to a cocktail or two.
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.
