Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has strengthened its Manchester team with ten new appointments – enhancing the private client, risk assurance, audit, financial reporting advisory, indirect tax and financial due diligence teams. 

At director level, Adam West and Howard Munson have joined RSM’s private client and risk assurance teams, respectively. 

Adam joins from PwC to head up RSM’s private client advisory team in Manchester and across the North West. He brings a wide range of private client experience, advising high net worth individuals, non-doms, entrepreneurs and family businesses. 

Howard has been appointed to lead the corporate internal audit and risk assurance services for the North West. He joins the firm from Deloitte and specialises in internal audit, risk assurance and corporate governance, including advising boards on managing potential risks such as the potential impacts of Brexit

Amelia Hindle, Louise Cowell and Tony Jaras have joined the firm as associate directors in RSM’s financial reporting advisory and indirect tax teams, respectively. Amelia brings almost nine years of audit and financial reporting experience from previous roles at Marks and Spencer and BDO. Louise joins from Deloitte where she gained over eight years’ experience advising on all aspects of VAT with key specialisms in property, education and insolvency; and Tony brings over 30 years’ experience, specialising in public sector and not for profit, from previous roles within the Big Four and HM Customs & Excise. 

The appointments of Kim Keady and Hamzah Mogradia have further strengthened RSM’s internal audit practice; the appointment of Fayzan Waseem enhances the audit team; and the firm has expanded the financial due diligence team, welcoming Richard Tinsley and Laura Bollen.

Eric Solomons, RSM’s office managing partner in Manchester, said: ‘Each appointment further strengthens our offering in key areas of growth for the business; and it’s great to have them on board. 

‘Like our clients in the region, we are ambitious, and having specialist expertise and breadth of services allows us to support the commercial aims of clients at every step – whether it’s scaling up, mitigating risk or planning for a sale.’
