RISK ASSURANCE specialist Maya Buchanan has been appointed director in RSM’s Manchester office.

Buchanan’s role will include driving the expansion of RSM’s risk assurance practice with a focus on supporting a growing portfolio of corporate clients across the region.

Jill Jones, regional managing partner in the North West at RSM, said: “Risk assurance is becoming increasingly more important and Maya’s extensive knowledge will help our clients navigate and protect themselves in an ever-changing landscape, it’s great to have her on board.”

Maya Buchanan joins RSM from AIM-listed manufacturing company Scapa Group, where she was the head of group risk and assurance. Previously she has worked in practice at two of the ‘Big Four’ firms in risk assurance and internal audit.

Buchanan has more than 15 years of experience in corporate governance, investigations, corporate compliance, and implementing effective risk management frameworks. Additionally, she has expertise in the manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceutical, property management and not-for-profit sectors.

“RSM is a forward-thinking firm with a growing corporate client base and extensive international network which complements my experience perfectly. I’m looking forward to drawing on my experience to support a variety of corporate clients to add real value in a challenging market”, commented Maya Buchanan.

She joins alongside other new RSM recruits. Two new private client partners have been appointed in RSM’s London office from Royal Bank of Canada, and a new tax partner in Nottingham. RSM continues to invest in the north-west internal audit practice, following the recent appointment of risk assurance manager Michael Harding who joined the team from Beever and Struthers, bringing further not-for-profit expertise to the business.
