About Trevor Binyon
Trevor is one of the five founder Partners of Opus and an insolvency practitioner with over 30 years corporate restructuring & insolvency experience. Prior to founding Opus, Trevor was at RSM Tenon, in a Director role for over 11 years where he was primarily advising Banks on underperforming SME businesses and property companies.

Trev is married with 4 grown up children who keep him very busy. Trev’s a keen cyclist and is often seen in the lanes of Hertfordshire on his road bike. These days Trev’s running has turned more into a leisurely jog, and Trent Park, North London is a favourite route. He is an avid watcher of sport including Man United, Saracens and F1. The Psychology of owner managers and the makeup of their DNA continues to be a fascination and drives Trev’s passion for business.
