RSM announces partner promotion to drive organic growth in the North

Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM UK has announced the promotion of private client tax specialist Kate Aitchison to partner.

The promotion highlights the firm’s continued investment in its people, to drive growth from within its own ranks.

Originally in RSM’s Leeds office, Kate’s promotion will see her strengthen the private client tax team in the North West. As part of her new role, Kate is now based in the firm’s Manchester office, while continuing to deliver for clients across Yorkshire and the North East.

Kate joined RSM in 2020 as private client tax director, having initially trained at one of the Big Four. She has over 19 years of private client experience and specialises in personal tax issues including inheritance tax, capital gains tax planning, and succession planning.

As partner, Kate will continue to work alongside high net worth individuals, entrepreneurial clients, business owners, family-owned businesses and trustees. She will also support the ongoing development and growth of the private client team in the North West.

Kate Aitchison, partner at RSM UK, said:

“I am very proud to have been promoted to partner at RSM, and I look forward to continuing to work with our talented tax teams in the North to deliver for our clients. Whilst this is a massive personal achievement, I am grateful to all those who have supported me in my career so far. I am excited to start this next chapter at RSM and contribute to shaping the future of the firm.”

James Morris, RSM UK’s head of tax in the North, added:

“I’m delighted to welcome Kate to the partnership. Since joining the firm, she has made a huge impact in our private client services in the North and her promotion to partner reflects her hard work, talent and expertise, and RSM’s commitment to investing in its people. Kate will play a key role in driving our local, regional and national growth plans to deliver a premium service to our tax clients, and I look forward to continuing to work together.
