Mazars has appointed Lee Cartwright as its new Birmingham Managing Partner, who will succeed David Chapman. Cartwright, who has been working at Mazars since 1995, has taken on his new role as of the first of September and will work closely together with Partner Ian Holder, who will focus on driving business development of the Birmingham office.
Lee Cartwright is a veteran at Mazars, the consulting firm he joined in 1995 as a graduate trainee straight out of Wolverhampton University after he earned a Law degree. After 13 years at Mazars, Cartwright became a Partner in 2008. At Mazars, he has provided a wide range of services to clients, including internal audit, external audit, advice on mergers and group structures, governance, risk management and fraud awareness. Cartwright is also one of Mazars’ frontrunners in the housing sector.
Cartwright has succeeded Central Region Managing Partner David Chapman, who has taken on the role of National Head of Acquisitions, as of the first of September. He will work closely together with Partner Ian Holder, how will take on an increasingly market facing role, focussing on driving business development of the Birmingham office. “We still see tremendous scope for growth in Mazars in Birmingham and the West Midlands,” says Holder.
Commenting on his new role, Cartwright says: “Following David Chapman is no easy task. During the past ten years, he has overseen the growth of Mazars, moving its main office from Dudley into Birmingham, and is leaving the office established as a growing force to be reckoned with in the region. But I look forward to the challenge and I know I will be supported in continuing our growth by my fellow partners and staff at 45 Church Street in Birmingham.”
