Kevin Mapstone

Hi, I’m Kevin, a Relationship Manager with Grant Thornton UK LLP, specialising in Trust Deeds and other formal debt solutions. I’m based Edinburgh and Glasgow but cover the whole of Scotland. I’m here to advise you on debt management and guide you through setting up a Trust Deed or alternative debt arrangement. You can get your debts under control, and I’m here to help you do just that.

I feel strongly that people with serious debt issues deserve to be treated with fairness and respect.  It can be too easy for insolvency professionals to lose sight of how difficult it is for people to come forward and seek their help so I always try to keep this in mind when meeting with clients.  Hopefully this helps put people at ease and gives them the confidence to go through with an appropriate solution.

I hail from Sunderland originally, but moved to Edinburgh in 1993 to attend university. Before too long I had fallen for both Scotland and for my future wife, so it was an easy decision to stick around after graduation.  I started work with a high street bank, eventually becoming a personal account manager.  However, after a couple of years of growing steadily dissatisfied with having to sell credit cards, loans and other products to customers who might have only come in to pay a bill, I decided to switch sides.  I became a debt adviser, working for the local authority's money advice service as well as from Edinburgh Central Citizens' Advice Bureau.

I never looked back and it felt so much better to be able to help hundreds of clients to overcome their debt problems instead of adding to them!  Over a number of years as a debt adviser I became very experienced in dealing with debt problems and I eventually decided to specialise in insolvency, moving to work for an insolvency practitioner firm in 2007.  Finally I moved to Grant Thornton at the start of 2014, attracted by its excellent reputation and its focus on supporting and working in partnership with the free advice sector throughout Scotland.

Outside of work I am kept busy with my three young sons – though still find time to play badminton (badly) as well as coaching a kids football team.  I often travel down to Sunderland to visit family and friends, being careful to coincide my trips with weekends that Sunderland AFC are playing at home, having been a devoted follower all of my life.  I also like to pretend I can play a bit myself, though to be honest my creaking joints are complaining louder than ever lately!
