Smith and Williamson has appointed Andrew Manning as a partner to lead its new risk advisory business.

Manning has over 20 years of professional services experience, leading on risk assurance and controls transformation and has worked across a range of clients and sectors. He will be based in Smith and Williamson’s Bristol office and advise clients across the country.

He initially worked at Deloitte, where he advised across sectors within its audit advisory and assurance practice, delivering on controls transformation, risk and assurance.

Manning then spent three years with Crowe, building a successful risk assurance practice before moving back to the South West to lead RSM’s risk assurance practice in the South West and Wales.

The firm’s new risk advisory business “helps organisations understand the way they leverage people, third-party relationships, technology, data, business processes and controls to manage their corporate and strategic risks and elevate business performance”.

Guy Swarbreck, partner at Smith and Williamson LLP, said: “I am delighted to welcome Andrew to Smith and Williamson. His appointment is a strategic move for the firm and enhances the range of services we offer to our clients. 

“Andrew’s addition provides a much greater focus on the risks, governance and control environments at a time of unprecedented challenge given the change in working patterns and the wider impact of Covid-19.”

“I am looking forward to working with clients to drive real value from their business processes, help them manage organisational risk and show senior leaders and Boards how they can get insightful assurance.”
