REEVES PRIVATE CLIENT PARTNER Geraint Jones is to leave the firm after four years in order to take up a partner position at North London firm Berg Kaprow Lewis, Accountancy Age has learned.
Jones becomes the second partner set to leave Reeves within a month, after Fiona Hotston Moore's move to East Anglia firm Ensors was confirmed last week.
Jones began his career at Blick Rothenberg, where he spent nine years as a tax manager, before moving on in 2007 to FW Stephens, first as a private client tax manager and subsequently personal tax partner. After a three-year stint, he joined Reeves as a private client tax partner in 2010 following a merger between the two firms.
Alongside Jones, BKL confirmed they had also made two further property tax appointments, Andrew Levene and Martyn Krantz. They will both support the firm's attempts to grow its property and real estate group as well as advise more widely.
BKL placed 75th on Accountancy Age's Top50 +50 in 2013, boasting a fee income of £8.2m after growing 6%. The firm is based in Finchley and draws its clients for various sectors including charities, entrepreneurs, family-run businesses, franchises, high-net worth individuals, limited companies, partnerships, LLPs and sole traders.
Jones said he "always had a great deal of respect for Berg Kaprow Lewis", and was "delighted to be joining such a dynamic and exciting firm".
Both Reeves and BKL declined to comment.
