Ben Bilsland Partner and Media and Technology Senior Analyst

Ben is Accounting and Financial Reporting Partner based in our Bristol office. He is a Technology and Media sector expert and an Industry Senior Analyst as part of RSM’s Industry Eminence Programme. Ben works with RSM’s clients providing forward looking sector specific advice and supporting their growth in the UK and overseas.

Ben and his team provide clarity and improvement to financial reporting, producing financial statements and management information to support better strategic planning, forecasting, cash-flow and profit. This includes supporting businesses moving through IFRS and US GAAP transitions and conversions.

Asked what gets him out of bed in the mornings, Ben replies:

Our team, our clients and strong coffee! The RSM culture is grounded in principles of respect, constant development and a team ethic. This gives me the motivation to support our clients as we partner with them through their exciting growth and change.

Away from work, Ben enjoys throwing himself down steep slopes. He is a trained ski instructor (albeit retired) and a keen mountain-biker. He is also an enthusiastic amateur cook, although not blessed with the patience for baking.
