Accountants and business advisers, Gerald Edelman has announced the appointment of Joanna Loizidou and Sonal Shah to its partnership team.
Loizidou joined the company 11 years ago, as part of its graduate recruitment program.
In her role, she leads Gerald Edelman’s business services department where she manages a diverse portfolio of clients, from larger property companies to SMEs and owner managed businesses.
She supports her clients with all services, from compliance support to business strategy.
Loizidou said: “This is an extremely proud moment in my career. When I joined Gerald Edelman 11 years ago, I never imagined I would become a partner. Yet, I have been supported and empowered to carve out my own career path.
“I have seen the business evolve over the last ten years, not only in the services we deliver, which are now focused on strategic advice rather than compliance, but in the culture. The culture is so different today; we have a team focus and it is an exciting environment to work in.”
She added: “I am delighted to join the partnership and look forward to leading the business through the next stage of its development.”
Whereas, Shah joined Gerald Edelman in 2017 to build and lead the international tax department, where she works with a mixed portfolio of corporate and private clients.
She has extensive knowledge of UK and overseas tax markets, providing advice on international tax structuring, planning, strategy and reporting, with a particular interest and expertise in property structuring.
Shah said: “I am thrilled to be welcomed into the partnership. The support and mentoring I have received in the three years of being at the firm has not only crystallised my passion for people, but it has offered me an empowering mix of freedom and opportunity to develop my career.”
CEO Richard Kleiner said: “We are delighted and proud to welcome Joanna and Sonal into our partnership. Not only their expertise but their leadership qualities make them an excellent fit for the firm, and I know they are going to be integral to the future development of the business.
“Their promotions are well-deserved and a testament to their hard work and dedication. I am looking forward to working alongside these exceptional professionals and wish them all the best for their futures at Gerald Edelman.”
