Smith & Williamson Chief becomes new Chairman of Managing Partners'

Smith & Williamson chairman Gareth Pearce has been appointed chairman of the Managing Partners’ Forum. The forum is a confidential discussion group consisting of individuals with management responsibility for law, accountancy, surveying and other professional firms. Pearce takes over the two-year post from Julian Synett, managing partner of Levy Gee. The forum was established six years ago, has over 100 members, meets regularly in London and Manchester, and holds an annual conference in June. Key objectives of the forum are to link members through a formal network, exchange ideas through regular events and to benchmark best practice through membership surveys.

Richard Chaplin, executive director of the Forum, said: ‘I have known Pearce since we were both at KPMG. He has been an active attendee at many Forum events over the last few years, and I am looking forward to working alongside him at an exciting time in the development of the Forum.’ ?:
