Parritt leaves Baker Tilly for CE post

Clive Parritt, chairman of mid-tier firm Baker Tilly, is quitting to join independent corporate finance house The Business Exchange as chief executive.

Parritt has been managing partner of the firm since 1986, becoming chairman in 1996.

The Business Exchange was set up by Douglas Llambias, the high-profile corporate marriage broker, who has been behind several accountancy firm mergers. Llambias will become chairman of the company, which he hopes to float within five years.

Parritt, 57, said: ‘I have decided to put my money where my mouth is and increased my involvement in corporate finance deals.’

Baker Tilly said the process of selecting a new chairman was underway and that an announcement was expected next month.
