The Nottingham office of auditing and advisory firm UHY Hacker Young is a key hub within the company’s broader UK operation. As its clients across the region face an uncertain 2019, with the sword of Damocles that is Brexit still dangling above the economy, the firm is keen to enhance its capacity to offer leading commercial advice to a growing number of East Midlands businesses.

To that end, the professional services firm has strengthened its audit offering with the addition of Andrew Timms to the Nottingham team. In his new role, Timms will look to strengthen the audit and business advisory practice, with a particular focus on owner-managed businesses.

Timms – who has more than 20 years of professional service industry experience – has joined UHY from PKF Cooper Parry, where he spent more than 11 years as a Partner. During that time, he focused on advising owner-managed and international businesses, building a portfolio of 55 clients and bringing in a total of £2.3 million in annual fees across all service lines. His clients spanned many sectors, including healthcare, renewables and engineering. Prior to that, Timms spent nearly seven years at Big Four firm Deloitte as a Senior Manager. He is currently also a board member at Nottingham Contemporary.

Timms commented, “I am delighted to have joined UHY’s Nottingham office. We feel there is a gap in the region for straight-forward and value for money advice. The UHY team is perfectly positioned to deliver that and I look forward to helping to get our message out there and helping to cement our position as one of the city’s leading accountancy practices.”

Simon Browning, the Partner in charge of UHY Hacker Young’s Nottingham office, added, “We are delighted to have Andrew on board. He has a wealth of experience in dealing with family and owner-managed businesses, an area we have always been devoted to and will continue to grow, and is perfectly suited to add real value to UHY’s clients. I have no doubt he will be a major asset to the team here in Nottingham.”
