Banerjee joined UHY Hacker Young in 2014, having previously worked in senior roles within the UK’s top 6 accounting firms.
According to the firm, Banerjee will retain his role at UHY Hacker Young whilst he undertakes the three-year position as chairman of UHY.
UHY said the firm as a whole is taking on an “increasing amount of international work”, especially in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, retail and leisure, real estate and not-for-profit organisations.
Banerjee will succeed Dennis Petri who is a partner of UHY LLP the US member firm of UHY.
Banerjee said: “Becoming chairman of one of the world’s leading accounting and consultancy networks at a time when the globalisation of business is bouncing back so strongly after Covid, is a really exciting prospect.”
“Many of the current challenges for businesses, such as inflation, supply chain disruption and staff shortages are often going to be solved by investing more in the global expansion of those businesses. Our clients want us to work with them on that global expansion, partnering with them in more countries.”
He added: “My predecessors have done a fantastic job in building such a comprehensive network of firms across the world. They’ve ensured that membership of UHY allows our firms to rapidly build large teams of experts across borders and to compete for ever bigger international mandates.”
