Banerjee succeeds Laurence Sacker, who held the role since 2016. He was formerly the head of the firm’s national charity and not-for-profit group.
As well as working with a wide range of regulatory bodies, charities, academies, and universities, Banerjee also provides audit services to large private groups involved in property and publishing.
He joined UHY Hacker Young in 2014, having previously worked in senior roles at Ernst and Young and Grant Thorton, where he held senior roles such as audit manager and director.
He said his role will be to work with all the partners to further develop the firm’s audit and advisory client base across a range of sectors, where the firm has demonstrable expertise, including the audit of companies listed on both UK and international markets.
He said : “It’s a real honour to take on this role. I’ll be building on the great work of Laurence and his predecessor, Ladislav Hornan, in developing UHY Hacker Young’s position as one of the UK’s leading accountancy firms which has a fantastic client base.”
“The firm has developed an outstandingly positive culture that is really friendly, meritocratic and professional. Being a relative newcomer to the firm, that is something I still find refreshing.”
Sacker added: “The entire partnership is delighted that Subarna is taking up this role. He has the right blend of skills, ideas and experience to take UHY Hacker Young forward.”
Banerjee has also been appointed to join Sacker as the UK’s second founder director to the board of UHY International.
