Elisa Howe has joined Mazars as a Partner in its audit wing, while Jim Dolan joins as Partner in the firm’s digital team. Ian Holder, Office Managing Partner, welcomed the pair to the Birmingham hub, which Mazars moved into earlier in 2021.

Holder added, “It’s a pleasure to welcome Elisa and Jim to our rapidly growing team… These appointments underscore our ongoing commitment to growing our Technology & Digital offering, and our services for privately owned businesses, while ensuring we continue to provide the highest quality service to our clients.”

International accounting and advisory firm Mazars recently commenced a lease in a state-of-the-art space at Two Chamberlain Square, in the heart of the landmark Paradise Birmingham development – a place popular with some of the biggest professional services firms in the UK. Since then, the firm has gone from strength to strength, according to Holder, necessitating the expansion of its expert team to meet demand.

He brings more than 30 years of experience in providing strategic advice to clients on business digital transformation.

In his own post on LinkedIn, Dolan stated, “I was tremendously excited to be travelling to Birmingham today… to take up my new role as a Partner at Mazars.
