Lloyd established Jirsch Sutherland’s office in the NSW city of Newcastle: the first specialist reconstruction and insolvency practice in the Hunter Valley.

Lloyd worked in commerce before joining the insolvency profession. As part of this transition, he was involved in several workout situations as a contractor, both in New Zealand and Australia. This gave him an in-depth understanding of the stresses and demands of SMEs.

Lloyd has gained significant experience working across a variety of industries including:

  • retail
  • wholesale
  • transport & storage
  • building & construction
  • hospitality


  • Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CA)

Lloyd has more than 35 years experience in the business sector. His specialist skills and key areas of expertise include:

  • workout solutions
  • rural and regional concerns
  • credit appraisal reports
  • dispute resolution
  • Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA)
  • Australian Restructuring Insolvency & Turnaround Association (ARITA)
  • Australian Institute of Credit Managers (AICM)

Lloyd has been associated with Jirsch Sutherland since 1990. He established the first of the Jirsch Sutherland expansion offices in Newcastle three years later. At this time Jirsch Sutherland was  the  only  specialist  reconstruction and insolvency practice in the Hunter Valley.

Personal Interests

Lloyd has a keen interest in many sports but rugby union is his true love. When his competitive playing days ended, Lloyd was a referee for more than 10 years and still helps out on the board of the Referees’ Association. When time away from his growing family permits, Lloyd indulges his interest in fine wine.
