David Buchler

The legendary ballad “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” by the famous American folk duo, Simon & Garfunkel, springs to mind when talking about David Buchler – David’s ability to bring a sense of calm and comfort to corporates and individuals alike in troubled times, is second to none. With a career spanning 30 years, David is recognised as a leading practitioner in the field of corporate recovery. A former Arthur Andersen Partner and Founder Partner of Buchler Phillips, he was Chairman of Kroll Inc for Europe & Africa until 2003 and is currently Chairman/Vice Chairman of a number of public and private companies in the UK.   

David is specifically recognised for his success in reorganising and restructuring companies. He established DB Consultants in order to concentrate on turnaround assignments where a significant hands-on involvement at board or senior management level is required by people with the necessary experience and skills to manage a sustainable recovery.

David is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, a member of the Society of Turnaround Professionals and former President of the professional body, R3.
