STUART WATSON has been appointed EY's Yorkshire and Humberside senior partner as the firm continues to grow in the region.

Watson is an assurance partner who previously headed audit for mid-market practice before taking up a role in the firm's Leeds office in 2008.

A specialist in advising private equity-backed and listed mid-market companies in the region - including on IPOs, Watson will lead EY's team serving Yorkshire and Humberside from the firm's Leeds and Hull offices.

"In the improving economy, we are planning for continued growth after a strong performance to our June 2014 year-end, which was helped by the IPOs we completed and other transaction work for clients in Yorkshire and Humberside," Watson said.

David Buckley, who previously headed the practice, has stepped down after over five years at the helm to concentrate on his roles advising a number of the firm's largest national clients and leading EY's transaction support team in the region.
