RSM appoints new managing partner for Gatwick

Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed Rowan Williams as the new managing partner in its Gatwick office.

Rowan will take over the reins from Kirsty Sandwell who steps down as office managing partner in April but will continue as head of corporate finance for the south.

In her new role, Rowan will be in charge of growing the firm’s presence in the Gatwick Diamond as well as across the wider south east region.

Rowan is national head of RSM’s professional services group, leading a multi-disciplinary team advising legal businesses, consultants, surveyors and architects on growing their businesses. Rowan is currently chair of the UK Legal Finance Forum and a member of the Association of Partnership Practitioners.

In her career to date, Rowan has advised a diverse range of clients including AIM-listed groups, large private companies, LLPs and owner-managed businesses, both in the UK and overseas. She is also extensively involved in the firm’s international network, and has built up a particular expertise in the cultural and regulatory challenges of operating internationally.

Elfed Jarvis, RSM’s regional managing partner for the south said:

‘Despite being a long established firm, the RSM brand name is relatively new in the local market. Rowan is the perfect choice to help us grow our brand presence locally and her broad experience will be invaluable to RSM’s clients in the Gatwick Diamond and beyond.’
