Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM UK has appointed Andrew Gibson as a new partner to strengthen its consulting team.
Andrew has been appointed as a partner in RSM’s risk and governance solution team and will be based out of the firm’s Manchester office.
Andrew has over 20 years’ experience in delivering internal audit, internal controls and risk management solutions to leading UK and global companies including the FTSE 100/250.
He joins RSM UK from Deloitte, where he was the national lead for all internal audit and controls work for their consumer products clients. He also spent time seconded to FTSE 20 companies to develop and lead their risk and governance strategy and management.

Throughout his career he has also worked across several industries including financial services, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and technology.
At RSM UK, he will be responsible for helping the firm’s corporate clients improve resilience, navigate through the complexities of UK corporate audit reform, and help them build effective control environments to support their growth ambitions and implement a robust risk culture.
Andrew Gibson, risk assurance partner at RSM UK, said: ‘I am proud and privileged to be joining RSM and have been deeply impressed by the firm’s culture, depth of capability and its people. With the onset of UK corporate audit reform and the need for companies to do more on their internal controls, risk management and wider assurance, it truly is an exciting time for the business.’

Andrew is highly knowledgeable in this area, and he has vast experience working with national and international companies particularly within the consumer industry. This will be significant when helping our corporate clients to manage and mitigate their risks, enabling them to make informed decisions, improve their businesses and thrive.’
