Reynolds takes Duncan & Toplis managing partner role

Adrian Reynolds takes the reins from Peter Townsend at Boston-based firm

Duncan & Toplis has named Adrian Reynolds as its managing partner.

The firm, ranked 37 in Accountancy Age’s Top50+50 list, has promoted Reynolds after he served as a partner since 1989.

He takes over from Peter Townsend, who moves into the chairman role at the firm after eight years as managing partner.

Reynolds intends to continue growing the firm, organically and through acquisition. He also wants the firm to offer a broader range of services to clients.

“Businesses increasingly need more than compliance services and today we offer support in the areas of IT, corporate finance, financial planning, turnarounds and management accountancy. Other services will follow,” said Reynolds.

“Peter has done a fantastic job. His main driver was to ensure that the firm works as one: thanks to his leadership, we now have a stronger focus on sharing resources across the practice and we are more streamlined than we were, with a centralised business support structure and areas of expertise in each office.”

Reynolds graduated from Bristol Polytechnic with an accounting and finance degree in 1981, before qualifying as a chartered accountant with Solomon Hare. He joined Duncan & Toplis in 1986.
