RSM has appointed Paul Baldwin to its Swindon office as a Partner. He brings more than two decades of experience across some of the world’s largest professional services firms, and is tasked with supporting the firm’s corporate tax team.

In 2017, RSM increased its revenues by 9%, hitting £319 million by the end of 2017. The firm’s income for Consulting, Human Resource and Legal Services jumped 46.6% to almost £16 million, while tax and advisory increased by 8.6% to £138 million. RSM has 35 offices across the UK, and late last year, the firm witnessed its presence in the country expand significantly.

Now, as the firm looks to maintain its growth in its Swindon practice, it has appointed a new Partner to the office. Paul Baldwin was previously with rival FTI Consulting for the past more than ten years, most recently as a Managing Director in the firm’s European Tax Advisory Services. The role saw him advise and provide leadership to clients on among others, M&A, international financing, corporate restructuring and formal insolvency projects. He has also spent time with two members of the Big Four. Most recently, he worked with EY for two and a half years as a Senior Tax Manager, on topics such as corporate tax aspects of M&A transactions.

An earlier role included three years at Deloitte as a Senior Tax Manager, and before that he commenced his career at the now defunct Arthur Anderson. At the then-Big Five member, he worked as a Tax Manager, among other roles, over a six-year period. He holds a Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering from Imperial College London.
