Crowe has boosted its partnership with two new appointments. Jayne Rowe joins the firm’s social purpose and not-for-profit wing, while Alex Conway is promoted internally to partner within the firm’s professional practices team.

Nigel Bostock, CEO at Crowe, commented, “I can welcome Jayne and Alex to the partnership with great pride. The combination of attracting new talent with leading reputations in the market, as well as the promotion of existing talent from within, shows the strong position we are in and our commitment to building the best teams possible.”

Alex Conway’s promotion within Crowe’s professional practices wing makes him the youngest partner currently at the firm. He brings 14 years of experience in tax and accounting to the role, including a two-year interval as Head of Tax at mid-market private equity firm Livingbridge, between two extended spells with Crowe. He returned to the firm as a Director in 2021.

In his new job, Conway will grow Crowe’s private equity offering, by leading the fund, investment manager, and fund executive service. His client base includes solicitors, surveyors, investment managers, patent and trade mark attorneys, barristers and high-net-worth-individuals.

In a post on LinkedIn, Conway noted he was not someone “who often posts” to the site, but felt the need to thank the family, friends and colleagues who had supported him over his career. Conway initially joined Crowe via a work experience placement in 2009, and has seen “many twists and turns” on his journey in the intervening 14 years. The post has received more than 400 engagements from colleagues and well-wishers.

Looking ahead, Conway added, “I am very much looking forward to the next chapter of my career, will keep striving to go that extra mile for my clients and team and aim to give as much back to this great firm as they have given me over the years.”

Jayne Rowe meanwhile brings more than 23 years of experience to Crowe, joining the firm’s social purpose and non-profits team. In late 2022, Crowe was named top charity auditor in Civil Society’s Charity Finance Audit Survey – for the 14th consecutive year – and Rowe’s arrival further demonstrates the firm’s long-standing dedication to the sector.

She joins from PEM Cambridge – an independent accounting firm – where she was Head ofCharities for four years. Prior to that, Rowe also spent more than 19 years in the national charities team of Deloitte. Having worked closely with leading charitable groups such as the NSPCC, Royal British Legion and British Red Cross, as well as a number of FCA authorised and regulated clients, she brings a breadth of experience adding value to clients through due diligence work, advisory action, governance and training advice and benchmarking services.

Rowe said via a LinkedIn post with more than 200 engagements, “I'm excited to start my new job as social purpose and non-profit audit Partner at Crowe UK.”

Crowe is a national audit, tax, advisory and risk firm offering global reach and local expertise. As clients look to adapt to a challenging economy, the firm is seeing increasing demand for help managing costs, and deploying new technology solutions.
