Azets South Wales appoints four senior members

Amy Buckley has joined the tax team as partner, Oliver John as director and Ben Griffin as associate director, while the corporate finance division has appointed Claire Marshall to the role of director

Azets has announced the appointment of four senior members to its South Wales tax and corporate finance teams to “strengthen its position” as a top 10 firm. 

Amy Buckley has joined the tax team as partner, Oliver John as director and Ben Griffin as associate director, while the corporate finance division has appointed Claire Marshall to the role of director. 

Buckley is said to have over 20 years’ experience working in personal tax, 16 of which were spent in a Big Four firm. As partner, she will advise in areas such as inheritance tax, trusts and succession, compliance, profit extraction, property portfolios, capital gains tax and residence and domicile issues.

John was previously at Mazars for just over five years where he provided tax and share valuation advice to a range of businesses with regards to share transactions. In his new role as director at Azets, he will continue to share tax advice with clients, from companies looking to raise capital to shareholders looking to exit. 

Griffin, also previously at Mazars, has been appointed associate director in the tax advisory team and is reportedly a qualified chartered accountant and chartered tax adviser with experience in transactions, equity incentives for management, as well as fiscal valuation and all aspects relating to the “employment-related securities” rules. 

Marshall has joined Azets as a director within the corporate finance team, specialising in supporting clients with mergers and acquisition advisory support, transaction due diligence and capital raising advisory work. She trained as a chartered accountant with KPMG, and more recently, achieved an MBA from Warwick University. 

David Owens, regional CEO at Azets South Wales, said: “With two of our service lines continuing to grow, it’s an exciting time for us as we continue to develop our teams to match our business demand. 

“All four senior appointments bring a wealth of experience in their sectors, and their professional knowledge is a huge asset to our team. I look forward to seeing both the tax and corporate finance teams continue to flourish.”
