Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed a new associate director to strengthen its national and regional tax practice in the North West.
Rob Adams has been appointed as associate tax director. He will be based in Liverpool and Chester, acting for clients in the North West and supporting the firm’s growing portfolio across the region.
Rob joins RSM from Grant Thornton, where he worked as an associate tax director for 20 years. Specialising in advising entrepreneurial and owner managed businesses, he brings with him over 30 years’ experience advising on corporate and private client tax issues.
He has published books on tax planning, is a former chair of the Merseyside branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, and currently serves on the committee of the Liverpool Society of Chartered Accountants, one of the four founding societies of the ICAEW.
In addition, Corporate Tax Associate Ben Roberts has joined RSM’s Liverpool and Chester tax team this month, after transferring from the firm’s Birmingham office. Ben will help support the region’s growing number of tax clients.
David Hawley, RSM’s tax partner in the North West, said: ‘Both appointments reflect our focus on growth and investment in the North West. I’m delighted to be welcoming Rob and Ben to our Liverpool and Chester team, and I look forward to working with them to support our ambitious growth plans.
‘Rob brings with him a wealth of experience as a tax practitioner, published author and work with leading professional bodies, all of which will be integral to strengthen our regional tax practice; while Ben brings significant knowledge which will further develop our tax offering in the North West.’
Graham Bond, RSM’s office managing partner in Liverpool and Chester, added: ‘Our latest appointments will enhance our regional and national offering, reinforcing our commitment to providing expert tax advice and ensuring we are the go-to firm for middle market businesses in the North West.’
