Accounting and business advisory firm Hurst has expanded its tax advisory team with two senior appointments.
It revealed Lindsey Egan and Liza Whiley have joined the firm from KPMG and Catax respectively as a senior tax manager and research and development specialist.
The new roles have been created to meet “growing demand” from an expanding client base at Hurst, which focuses on advising entrepreneurial companies with turnover of £5m and above.
Egan was a senior tax manager at KPMG, which she joined in 2016 from Mazars. She has more than 15 years’ experience of managing a diverse portfolio of clients.
In addition, Whiley previously worked for seven years at Altrincham-based Catax as a manager in the R&D department.
The duo are the latest arrivals as Hurst, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Recently the firm announced three additions to its corporate finance team and six new arrivals in its business services team.
The new appointments take the number of staff at Hurst to 96 and the firm expects the figure to top 100 in the near future in line with its growing client base and a buoyant deals pipeline.
The firm said it acts for a diverse range of clients that include entrepreneurial businesses such as Kinaxia Logistics, M&I Materials, London Lash, Beechfield Brands, Duerr’s, Oliver Valves and Delamere Dairy.
Liz Gallagher, Hurst’s head of tax advisory, said: “Lindsey and Liza are tremendous additions to our team. They bring a wealth of experience to the practice and enhance our capabilities to serve our client base of entrepreneurial north west businesses.
“These new roles will help us meet increasing demand for high quality tax advice to our ever-growing client base.”
