The changes, to be introduced on 1 April, will see Paul Eagland take
responsibility for both audit and tax, while Michaels adds the firm’s HR agenda
to his other duties.
Jeff Jones joins the leadership team as head of North, while Tony Perkins,
head of Audit, and David Anderson, head of people, will leave the panel but
continue in their senior audit roles within the firm.
Michaels said: ‘These changes to the team are in recognition of the fact that
we operate in a fast moving marketplace which requires us, like other
businesses, to adapt.
‘Audit and tax have the same quality and service ambition in heavily
regulated markets therefore close alignment is key. Paul Eagland has a strong
appetite to lead further growth of our market share, capitalising on
opportunities during the downturn.’
