Already a partner at the group, Spencer will now be tasked with spearheading the company’s aims of expanding its pan-regional, multifaceted advisory services whilst operating from its Birmingham office.
Spencer provides over 17 years of experience in Manchester working with large corporates and international groups.
In the new role, she will lead the Birmingham-based team of corporate tax specialists, while driving collaboration with the Manchester office.
Mark Taylor, regional managing partner at RSM in the Midlands, said: “The addition of Claire is the latest in a series of exciting investments in our tax advisory capability in the Midlands over recent times.
“She is a natural leader, an expert business adviser and someone who has demonstrated the capacity to make a real difference. Claire’s move once again illustrates RSM’s flexibility in matching talent to opportunity.”
Spencer added: “RSM has a strong team here in Birmingham, and I am very proud to have been asked to lead it and expand our tax capability in the region.
“Working more collaboratively across our Birmingham and Manchester offices, and indeed nationally, will only serve to strengthen our client service in a region that offers so much as a prosperous business community.”
