During his 10 years at the firm, he progressed through to associate director and worked primarily with owner-managed SMEs across the financial services, shipping, and hospitality sectors covering a wide range of sectors.
In 2016, Martin moved to the West Country to join Bishop Fleming as a director in their tax team where he focused on high-growth and technology SMEs in the manufacturing, retail and food and drink sectors.
He said: “Right from my very first conversation with Old Mill it was clear to me that culture really meant something to the firm. Everyone was passionate, genuine and honest and I knew it would be a lovely place to work.
“The current tax team is incredibly talented and clearly takes great pride in their work, and I am really looking forward to working with them – the team comes first for me.”
David Maslen, head of tax, Old Mill, added: “We were delighted when Stephen applied for the role, because it’s quite rare to find someone with so much relevant experience, whose beliefs and values are synonymous with Old Mill’s, but also has the drive and ambition to take the company forward.
“Stephen’s skills, experience and passion in this area will also be a huge asset to Old Mill.”
