I worked with Chris McKay as part of a team on a large business recovery project. I found Chris extremely competent with everything he did and he exercised excellent judgement. Chris is pragmatic and has very broad experience across many sectors. Chris is focussed and is able to command respect, even in very difficult situations. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Chris and would have no hesitation in recommending him."

McTear Williams & Wood were called in to help our company when it went into Administration. They took early decisive action to reduce costs, maintain the loyalty of customers and key staff and find a viable way forward for our company. They conducted themselves at all times with the utmost professionalism, integrity and objectivity. I found them approachable, well-connected, responsive and always value-adding. McTear Williams & Wood have been instrumental in turning around Broadland Wineries' fortunes.
