The Team

In these most difficult of times, businesses are realising that any underlying operational inefficiencies are being magnified, creating real pressure on what would ordinarily have been seen as solid business models.

We are a unique partnership of CVA practitioner & hospitality consultant delivering a comprehensive solution by providing rounded and targeted support. KSA Group has teamed up with Bar Restaurant Solutions to support businesses in turning around performance by addressing debt and creditor issues, setting solid foundations, creating a simple, effective and efficient structure that allows the business the space to breathe, recover and rebuild on more solid foundations.

Keith Steven, our KSA Group managing director, heavily involved in turnaround and insolvency leadership, a CVA expert, and dedicated to helping SMEs across the UK in every sector…. he is also a publican! Well, he owns a wine bar and restaurant in a Northumberland town. And he is, in this horrible 2020 Covid-19 world, witnessing first hand the problems of furlough, nil cash flow, planning for opening and working capital planning.

Keith loves the licensed trade and has built a great family team at Foxtons Wine Bar Berwick Upon Tweed why not reach out to him or Gary Weber for advice?
