A long-serving PwC director has moved to Smith & Williamson and stepped up to partner.
Fiona Westwood, who has served with the Big Four firm for 17 years, has joined Smith & Williamson. She will serve in the firm’s assurance & business services team. Her experience comes in the professional practice sector, most notably with law firms.
“I’m really excited to have joined Smith & Williamson; I chose to come and work here as the firm has a very strong reputation for excellent client service and for looking after its clients very well,” said Westwood.
The ICAEW fellow also holds a diploma in charity accounting, and drafted the registered social housing CORP for compliance with new UK accounting regulation FRS 102.
“Her appointment strengthens our offer to the professional practices, charities and owner-managed business sectors, and we are very pleased to welcome her on board,” said Smith & Williamson head of business interests Giles Murphy.
