PKF Francis Clark has welcomed “experienced” advisor Martin Rossiter as its new partner based in Salisbury.
Rossiter joins after more than 20 years with RSM, where he was a partner in Basingstoke, and will help farmers and agribusinesses in Wiltshire and beyond to navigate the current period of significant change for UK agriculture.
Rossiter said: “Coming from a farming family background, I’ve always enjoyed advising farmers and other owner-managed rural businesses. PKF Francis Clark has an excellent reputation in the rural market, having worked with farmers, landowners and agricultural businesses for over 100 years, and I’m delighted to have joined a team who share my passion for farming.
“Having grown up in Devon, I nearly joined back in 1998, when I was working for Deloitte in Cambridge. But we’d just had our first daughter so decided to move closer to my wife’s family. Since then I’ve seen how PKF Francis Clark has grown to become the number one firm in the Westcountry, and I always felt it would be an excellent fit for me and my clients.”
Nick Gooch, managing partner of PKF Francis Clark’s Salisbury office, added: “Martin brings many years’ experience of advising rural family businesses on their longer term plans and helping to solve their problems.
“He’s a really nice guy who builds long-term relationships with clients and gives good, sensible advice. He’s fitted in immediately with our team and we’re really pleased he’s joined us.”
