Mike Burt will join the firm as a new partner in its London office, while Helen Cowley will join its Manchester office. The firm also announced that Shona Munday has been promoted internally to a partner in its Letchworth office.
Burt joins UHY Hacker Young from Grant Thornton, where he was a partner for 20 years. He specialises in advising entrepreneurial private clients, and provides tax advice on a “broad” range of issues that includes structuring of transactions, succession planning and protection of wealth.
Cowley will join the firm from Baldwins, where she worked alongside owner-managed businesses for seven years. She provides bespoke tax advice to UK and overseas businesses and previously assisted clients entering global markets. She also has experience in international tax advice.
Meanwhile, Munday joined UHY four years ago, after beginning her career at BDO. She has “extensive” audit experience within the education, charity and not for profit sectors, and recently obtained ‘Responsible Individual’ RI status.
Colin Wright, group chairman, said: “These new appointments in our London, Manchester and Letchworth offices will feed into the expansion of the overall business and show the importance we place on our regional offices.
“We are continually looking to grow and develop the UHY Hacker Young UK Group. In addition to our organic growth and these new external and internal hires, we are looking at further expansion of the UK group through the appointment of new member firms to our national network.”
