TOP 50 firm MHA MacIntyre Hudson has promoted VAT specialist Neil Berry to tax partner at its Leicester office, as he looks to build on growing the office’s 1000 national and international clients.
Berry, who trained with a Big Four firm as a chartered tax adviser, has previously served at Top 50+50 firms Duncan and Toplis and Haines Watts, as senior manager and as a consultant.
He joined MacIntyre Hudson in 2013 and has since helped grow the Leicester office by providing a broad range of tax advice to private individuals, owner managed businesses and larger private companies. The Leicester office employs 42 partners and staff, and advises more than a thousand clients.
Commenting on his appointment, Berry said: “I am delighted to be made a partner in the Leicester office of MHA MacIntyre Hudson. It’s been hard work but it’s been a lot of fun and great working with motivated and ambitious colleagues serving a growing number of clients.
“My diverse client base means it’s always interesting and challenging work. For me, it’s about getting out of the office and meeting clients face to face, which is such an important part of understanding their requirements. It’s what I enjoy and where I can get to the heart of their affairs and understand what it is they want to achieve”
