PKF poaches three from Big Five

Pannell Kerr Forster has celebrated scoring a memorable hat-trick - after poaching two senior managers and a partner away from Big Five firms.

The trio will all work in PKF’s expanding Forensic Services Department.

Richard Bolton has transferred from Arthur Andersen where he was a partner and is accompanied by former colleague Steve Habayeb, who has been appointed as forensic services director.

To further compound the blow for the Big Five, Helen Gregory has joined as a manager following her defection from Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

Nick Whitaker, PKF head of forensic services, said: ‘We have been rapidly building our forensic capability around the country and are delighted Richard has joined to enhance our team and that Steve and Helen have joined at senior management level.’
