Jon Sparkes takes Bishop Fleming tax role

Former PwC tax specialist to serve from Bishop Fleming's Plymouth office

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.
