Parritt replaced swiftly at Baker Tilly

Mid-tier firm Baker Tilly has wasted no time in appointing John England to the role of chairman, following the resignation of Clive Parritt last week.

The firm today announced it had elected England – previously managing partner of the firm’s Birmingham office – into the role after the results of the partners’ votes were confirmed on Friday.

Parritt quit to join independent corporate finance house, The Business Exchange – set up by Douglas Llambias – as chief executive. He had been managing partner of the firm since 1986, becoming chairman in 1996.

England, 60, has served as deputy national managing partner from July 1996. He has also been a member of Baker Tilly’s National Management Team since 1991.

It was thought that the announcement would be made next month, but the firm said the 138-partner vote went ‘extremely smoothly.’ It is understood Parritt had been working out a 12-month notice period.

‘John England joined Baker Tilly through a merger in our Birmingham office in May 1991 and has been a tremendous asset to the firm,’ said national managing partner Laurence Longe.

He added: ‘John’s business development acumen, combined with a remarkable ability to create a forward-looking, harmonious partnership, will be invaluable as the firm continues its rapid growth, underpinned by our service excellence and specialist offerings.’
