National accountancy and advisory firm MHA MacIntyre Hudson has added three new partners to its ranks, taking the tally of its senior leadership team to 86. Gareth Peters joins in Milton Keynes, Ricky Noimark in North London and Alison Conley in the City of London.
With over 550 staff in fourteen offices in London and the South East, and across East Anglia and the Midlands, MHA MacIntyre Hudson is one of the UK’s top 20 accounting and advisory groups. In recent weeks the firm – the UK member of Baker Tilly International – has bolstered its Partner team with two familiar faces and one external hire.
Gareth Peters is a Chartered Tax Adviser who originally trained with the firm when he joined MHA MacIntyre Hudson 12 years ago. He has helped grow the Milton Keynes office by providing a broad range of tax advice to private individuals, owner managed businesses and expert advice within the motor sector.
Peters specialises in corporate advice, Capital Gains Tax Planning and Trusts and Inheritance Tax planning. He also has as an in depth knowledge of SDLT. “It’s been a lot of fun and great working with motivated and ambitious colleagues serving a growing number of clients. I am really looking forward to achieving the targets we have set locally for continued growth. Currently we are expanding our tax team and the aim is to double the office over the next five years.
Commenting on his promotion, Peter says he is delighted with the recognition. “It’s been hard work but it’s been a lot of fun and great working with motivated and ambitious colleagues serving a growing number of clients. I am really looking forward to achieving the targets we have set locally for continued growth.”
Today the Milton Keynes practice employs 65 partners and staff, and advises over a thousand clients. The firm has however drafted bold growth plans – MHA MacIntyre Hudson aims to double the office over the next five years.
Ricky Noimark has been named a Tax Partner in the firm’s North London office. An engineering graduate, Noimark joined MHA MacIntyre Hudson in 2008, and while working there secured his ACA and CTA qualifications as part of the firm’s graduate training and staff development programme. Today he leads the North London office’s tax consultancy helpdesk which specialises in the tax affairs of owner-managed and growth businesses, and high net worth individuals.
Reflecting on Noimark’s fast track through the firm’s ranks, Nigel May, Senior Tax Partner at the North London office of MHA MacIntyre Hudson, says “It’s always gratifying when someone, as in Ricky’s example, joins us as a trainee and then progresses all the way through to the most senior roles. Ricky’s been a fantastic member of the team and we are delighted that he has now been appointed a partner.”
Alison Conley joins MHA MacIntyre Hudson from Boonswood Consulting, a Kent-based consultancy, where she served as a Director. Previously she worked at local professional services group Creaseys Group, at EY, where she was a Tax partner, and at BDO, where she was a partner and latterly led the firm’s Southern region tax team. Over her career, Conley has advised corporate clients of all sizes across many business sectors, but she has, according to MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s Chairman Rakesh Shaunak, particularly strong experience in the retail space. In her new role, Conley has been named a Tax partner – she will work closely with the corporate finance teams, and with international clients requiring cross-border tax advice.
Shaunak: “We are delighted that Alison has chosen to join us. She joins at a very exciting time for MHA MacIntyre Hudson. Her international experience and her work on many deals adds welcome resource to the firm as we continue to broaden our scope.”
