CHELTENHAM-BASED accountancy firm Davies Mayers Barnett has appointed former RSM Tenon national head of tax Andrew Jupp as tax and non-executive director.
Jupp will support the firm’s tax offering and act in a strategic advisory role for the firm. Prior to Tenon, he was a partner with EY.
Jupp left Tenon in 2010 when it dropped the role of national head of tax as part of sweeping merger moves. The role was subsequently reinstated months later with the appointment of Paul Belsman.
Senior partner Tim Davies said: “Andrew’s appointment is very exciting and reflects our growing reputation as a leading independent firm and our growth ambitions. Andrew’s experience over many years will be vital in helping us to continue to provide an excellent proactive service to our clients, and to increase our range of offerings.”
Andrew added, “I am delighted to be joining Davies Mayers Barnett at such an exciting time in its growth. I look forward to working with the partners and the rest of the team as we seek to consolidate the firm’s position as a leading adviser in the market”.
The deadline for entries into the profession’s awards expires tomorrow, 29 July.
