Meet the Team: Shaun Rowe

23 December 2021

Shaun joined the firm in February 2017 with no prior insolvency experience, but took the job instantly. He was awarded with his CPI qualification in 2019 in which he achieved first place in England & Wales.

Shaun lives in Kingsbridge with his young son which is minutes away from some of Devon’s finest beaches.

A select few of you may have met him already but unfortunately the pandemic had put that on hold.


What is your role at RJS?

I am an Insolvency Administrator here at RJS and have a range of personal and corporate cases, but mostly corporate. My role is to assist with the preparation of new appointments and to continue to meet statutory deadlines on existing cases as well as ensuring those cases are progressed efficiently.

I have been involved in 55 cases since I joined RJS, and I am still learning on the job each day.

I will be looking to study towards the JIEB Corporate qualification in the not too distant future.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my young son aged 6 who is currently obsessed with football.

I also like to go to the gym and I play football on a weekend for Salcombe Town FC, followed by a “few” post-match drinks.

Why RJS?

I graduated from University as a Geography student, and I worked as a lifeguard at the local swimming pool whilst my son was young. At this point I decided it was time to seek a career which was both challenging and offered stability and progression.

To be honest, when I applied for a job in insolvency, I didn’t really know what it was! However, I did my research in advance of my interview and nearly 5 years later I haven’t looked back.

Something that people might not know about you.

I once was a competitive chess player in my primary school years until I got beat by the regional champion. At that point I threw my toys out of the pram and decided to quit.

Favourite case/work story?

I have had a range of cases since I joined RJS, but my favourite would probably be one of my most recent Creditor Voluntary Liquidations. The business was established well over 80 years ago and was still trading in the build up to the liquidation.

This case was more of a managed wind down and allowed me to get stuck into things that I wouldn’t normally experience.

What would your last meal be?

Traditional Fish and chips!
