Charlie Mercer – Insolvency Administrator at Antony Batty and Company
Find Out More About Charlie Mercer
We asked Charlie Mercer, a junior insolvency administrator who joined Antony Batty and Company in July 2019, to tell us a bit more about herself. Charlie is at the beginning of her career in insolvency, but what sort of person do you get when you work with Charlie? What makes her tick? Read on to find out – but beware, her pet hate is drivers not indicating when turning! Unlike most people at Antony Batty when it comes to football, she claims she isn’t that much into it. But her Dad’s a big Tottenham fan, which means deep down she must be too!! Just like her colleague here, Tom O’Keeffe.
Why did you become an Insolvency Practitioner/Choose a career in Insolvency?
“Before joining Antony Batty & Company, I didn’t know a lot about Insolvency. I always had an interest in Business Administration, so when the opportunity arose to work here, I took straight to it! I have learned so much already and I am looking forward to learning much more.”
Your most embarrassing moment in insolvency
“As this is my first job in Insolvency, I am lucky enough to say that I haven’t had an embarrassing moment!”
Your proudest moment in your insolvency career?
“I am looking forward to many proud moments as I continue to progress in my Insolvency career.”
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
“I have always had a love for all things art, particularly make-up artistry. I prefer keeping this as a hobby, but I love how creative I can really get with it!”
Persons who most influenced your career/life?
“I am sure a lot of people would say this, but it would have to be my family. I honestly wouldn’t know what to do without them all!”
“When people don’t indicate when they are driving!”
“I have two – The Notebook and The Fault in our Stars. John Green and Nicholas Sparks really know how to turn on the waterworks!”
“Moulin Rouge – it tells one of the greatest love stories you’ll ever hear!”
“I listen to a lot of music, but my favourite song is Sit Next to Me by Foster the People. It’s so catchy!”
Greatest invention ever?
“Lip balm! I seriously cannot live without the stuff!”
“My biggest regret was not continuing with my acting and singing career. I was always happiest when I was performing.”
The person from history you would most like to have a glass of wine with.
“Abraham Lincoln – I’d love to get to know him!”
How would you spend your fantasy 24 hours, with no travel restrictions?
“I would travel to North America. I would love to travel state to state there!”
