Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has announced nine new promotions to director in the North West, marking its largest ever cohort of new directors in the region. The promotions span several key teams including corporate finance, corporate tax, financial reporting, procurement and tax investigations.
There have been four promotions in the firm’s tax team, Darren Griffin (Liverpool), Nicola Clough (Preston) and Sarah Merrigan (Manchester) within the corporate tax team and Paul Marcroft (Preston) in the firm’s tax investigations team.
RSM’s accounting and business advisory faulty sees financial reporting specialists Helen Jones (Stoke) and Vicky Bailes (Preston) promoted to director.
The firm’s transactions team sees two promotions, Rikesh Patel (Manchester) in the merger & acquisitions team; and Sam Dalziel (Manchester) in the financial due diligence team.
Elliott Bowyer (Preston) was also promoted to director in RSM’s procurement team.
They were among 40 newly promoted directors across the national firms – marking the largest ever cohort of new directors. In addition, hundreds more have been promoted in RSM’s continued bid to strengthen the growth of the firm from within its own existing ranks. The firm aims to become a first-choice employer of highly skilled people, and a leading adviser to middle market firms globally.
Kevin Duffy, regional managing partner at RSM UK in the North West, comments:
‘We’d like to congratulate our newly promoted directors – they have worked extremely hard to reach this stage in their careers and we wish them every success as they each play an integral role in driving RSM’s future growth. Each promotion is a reflection of the hard work, dedication and talent at RSM. I’m delighted for all of them. By some margin, this marks the largest director cohort we have ever promoted in the region.
‘Growing our own talent is our number 1 priority. Beyond our newly promoted directors, hundreds more have progressed their careers here at RSM in recent weeks. We’re committed to investing in and supporting our people to grow. It is very rewarding to see and be part of the journey as our people build their careers. It is a privilege and the best part of my job to call and give people the news they have worked so hard to receive. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing someone grow in skill, experience and confidence as they progress.’
