Tilney Smith and Williamson has strengthened its corporate services offering in Birmingham with senior appointments in its professional services business.
Steve Hale joins the firm as an audit partner and Paul Twist becomes an associate director focusing on employment tax and share schemes. Meanwhile, Annabel Mason has been promoted to director in the business tax team.
The appointments come as the group’s Birmingham wealth management and professional services teams will shortly move into new offices at the city’s landmark 103 Colmore Row. The new office will accommodate around 170 people.
Hale joins Tilney Smith and Williamson from BDO where he spent nine years as an audit partner and has a focus on the West Midlands market.
Paul Twist also joins the group from BDO where he spent five years as an associate director focusing on employment tax and share schemes.
Annabel Mason joined Tilney Smith and Williamson’s business tax team in September 2020.
Stephen Drew, professional services regional managing partner, said: “Steve and Paul join our professional services team in Birmingham at an exciting time for the business as we shortly move into our new landmark offices at 103 Colmore Road and prepare to re-brand to Evelyn Partners this summer.
“Steve and Paul both bring extensive corporate services experience and their appointments form part of our commitment to continue investing in the region. I would also like to congratulate Annabel on her well-deserved promotion to director.”
