NRF said his appointment as president is a “solid testimony to his commitment to the institute” and his standing in the Australian and international profession.

Mr Martin said that as economies across the globe seek to emerge from the revenue and supply shocks imposed on businesses by the pandemic, the work of the institute is “particularly important”, and he would work to further its objectives.

“I am looking forward to working with the institute’s executive committee comprised of members from the United States, Singapore, Finland, UK, and Mexico,” he added.

Mr Martin shared that one key goal over the next two years would centre on connectivity and engagement, both between the institute’s members across the globe, and between its members and external bodies within the international insolvency sphere, “providing thought leadership, scholarship and practical assistance as economies emerge from disruption”.

Commenting on this appointment, NRF said: “John’s appointment as president of the International Insolvency Institute along with Scott Atkin’s recent appointment as president of INSOL International are remarkable achievements that reflect NRF’s preeminent position in the international restructuring and insolvency space.”
