JON SPARKES has made the move from Big Four firm PwC to Bishop Fleming.
Sparkes has spent nine years as a tax specialist for PwC, and has now been appointed as a senior tax manager for Bishop Fleming’s Plymouth office.
He said of the move: “Having taken on additional roles at PwC, where I had clients across the West Country and in London, I was keen to identify an opportunity to work with clients of a large regional firm. Bishop Fleming was the obvious choice, with its region-wide spread of offices and its full portfolio of services that matches every Big Four firm.”
Pippa Clarke, international tax partner at Bishop Fleming’s Plymouth office, said: “We are delighted to welcome these highly skilled recruits from the Big Four, and they will have every opportunity to spread their wings in our fast-growing business.”
Sparkes has experience in advising South West corporate, owner-managed businesses and charities.
