“During my time with the firm I have seen many positive changes. We have grown significantly to become a member of the eighth largest global accountancy network while also developing a position as a recognised leader in the UK for audit, tax and advisory services across our five areas of focus: corporate business, non profits, pension funds, professional practices and private clients.

“I have always been proud to work for Crowe – we have a unique consistency of culture and values which allow us to develop long-term relationships and continue to deliver the highest quality services to clients.

“I would like to thank David for his exceptional leadership and contribution to Crowe. It has been a pleasure to work with him over the last 11 years and to see his dedication to the firm first hand. He is a widely respected and talented partner and he has been a great ambassador both for us and our profession.”

Earlier this year, the firm announced six partner promotions across the private clients tax team and corporate business team.
