Top ten firm Moore Stephens has announced the appointment of three new partners in its not-for-profit team, as part of the firm’s drive to expand its not-for-profit offering.

Karen Thompson has been recruited head of charities, having previously been a partner at BDO and PKF Littlejohn.

She said: “I am delighted to join the team here at Moore Stephens. I’m looking forward to working with the sector to help charities achieve their vision and mission.”

Ian Mathieson has joined the firm as head of membership organisations. He was previously a partner and head of not-for-profit at both BDO and PKF Littlejohn.

Mathieson said: “Moore Stephens has an established and long-term commitment to the not-for-profit sector, both nationally and internationally. My aim is to deliver, practical and pragmatic business solutions to the strategic challenges and opportunities our clients, and the wider sector, continue to face.”

Heather Wheelhouse has been appointed as head of education. She has joined the firm from RSM UK where she was audit partner and head of the independent schools division.

Wheelhouse said: “I am passionate about education and act as a governor of an independent school and a trustee of a multi-academy trust. I look forward to bringing that real life experience to clients at Moore Stephens and growing the education practice.”

Head of not-for-profit at Moore Stephens Nick Simkins commented: “We are ambitious about growing our services and influence in the not-for-profit world, and Karen, Ian and Heather complement and extend the team’s provision of high-quality strategic and operational advice to not-for-profit organisations. Our investment in first class specialists demonstrates our determination to provide a positive impact on the sector.”
