Verity named new senior partner at Mazars

MAZARS has announced its new senior partner will be Phil Verity.

Verity is an executive member of the firm’s international management board and represents the firm’s commitment to home-grown talent having himself joined as a graduate in 1986.

Although Verity started his career at Mazars, he trained and qualified at Neville Russell and moved to Coopers & Lybrand for four years where he was latterly audit manager. He rejoined Mazars in 1995 and made partner in 1999.

He takes up his new role on 1 September and was previously leader of the UK’s middle-market businesses.

Verity said: “I am delighted to lead the UK firm in what I believe will be an exciting and significant period of the firm’s life. Despite the challenges of the marketplace, Mazars continues to achieve organic growth because of the calibre of the team and our commitment to high-quality client service.”

Verity succeeds David Evans, who has held the role for nine years and has reached his final term in office.

Evans said: “Mazars has come a very long way over the last 9 years; we have doubled in size and developed a unique global proposition. I am so grateful to the whole team for what we have accomplished together. I’m also delighted to be handing over to Phil, and excited by what I believe he and the Mazars team will be able to achieve in the future.”
