Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has opened a new office in Cambridge as it seeks to grow its market presence in the East Anglian market.
RSM's new office, at City House on Hills Road, will place the firm in the heart of the city's thriving business community close to Cambridge station.
By strengthening and expanding its operations throughout East Anglia, RSM's longer-term ambition is to become the undisputed leading advisory firm to the middle market in the region, with a strong bias towards private and corporate tax, audit and advisory services.
RSM UK is the part of the world's sixth largest network of audit, tax and consulting firms globally, which has 43,000 people operating from 800 offices in more than 120 countries.
The new office in Cambridge will house RSM's existing economic consultancy practice and provide a hub for the firm's other service lines to expand their presence in the city and surrounding areas.
Laragh Jeanroy will take on the role of RSM's office managing partner in Cambridge, in addition to her role as head of the Bury St Edmunds office. Laragh is well-known in the local business community, having worked in the city for over 20 years in previous roles.
Mark Taylor, RSM's regional managing partner for the central region said:
'Cambridge has one of the fastest growth rates of any British city, and it is hugely important globally as a centre of technology and research excellence.
'The growth of our team in East Anglia is a key element of our wider business strategy. I very much look forward to working with Laragh to grow the team and our brand presence locally. Her broad experience is invaluable to RSM’s existing clients in the region, and will continue to ensure we offer the region’s leading service. Her knowledge of the Cambridgeshire market will also be vital in helping to establish, bolster and grow our presence in this key market.
'From our new office in Cambridge, we hope to deepen our relationships with the local business community – particularly fast-growing middle market businesses - drawing on advisory expertise from across our regional, national and international network.'
Laragh Jeanroy, office managing partner in Cambridge said:
‘Geographically, the Cambridgeshire market forms an important part of our wider regional strategic growth plan. Having that physical presence in Cambridge will act as the enabler to grow, and to provide an on-site capability to clients based in and around Cambridge.’
