Raft of promotions as Tenon restructures service line

RSM TENON has appointed five new regional heads to lead its financial service line as part of a change to the division’s structure.

The changes, which will see local offices reporting into a regional head, came into effect from the start of the new financial year on 1 July.

The new regional heads, who are all promoted from within the firm, will oversee five regions broken up into London and the South, East Midlands, West Midlands, the North and Scotland.

Mike Nevill remains head of London and the South and will oversee offices in Basingstoke, London, Milton Keynes, Reading and Southampton; Richard Todd has been appointed head of East Midlands, which will include RSM Tenon’s offices in Nottingham and Leicester; Andy McGowan becomes head of West Midlands and will oversee the Birmingham office; Vinodh Josh will be head of the North, which will include offices in Chorley, Leeds, Manchester, Rochdale, Stoke and Sunderland; while Brian Knox is appointed head of Scotland.

“These new appointments reinforce our commitment to being one of the most successful independent financial advisory practices in the UK,” said John White, RSM Tenon’s head of financial management.

Earlier this year, Tenon announced it would drop certain tax services due to the government’s clampdown on tax avoidance.

In the interim management statement for 1 January to 16 May, the struggling listed accountancy firm announced that it will cull service lines in its specialist tax division due to chancellor George Osborne’s recently introduced general anti-avoidance rules (GAAR).
