Simon Wilks has been appointed managing partner of haysmacintyre, replacing
Bernie Watson who has stood down after almost seven years at the firm.
Wilks joined haysmacintyre in 1987 and, since being made partner at the age
of 31, has held various managerial posts at the firm.
Commenting on his appointment, Wilks said: ‘I am delighted to have the
opportunity to build on the excellent work Bernie has done over the last seven
years. The firm is enjoying very good organic growth in each of our three main
areas of expertise – corporate, not-for-profit and private client, which we
believe is due to both the success of our clients and the excellent service we
provide to them. My challenge is to preserve the team spirit whilst managing the
significant growth in income which we expect over the next three years.’
Haysmacintyre is based in Holborn, London, and comprises 24 partners and 140
staff. It provides auditing, business and personal taxation, corporate finance,
financial planning and other business support services.
