Former RSM Tenon chief joins HW Fisher as non-exec

FORMER RSM TENON chief Andy Raynor is back in the practice fold – as non-executive director of HW Fisher.

Raynor will serve as the top 25 firm’s first non-exec. “I’m here to give them a perspective they wouldn’t get from within the business,” Raynor told Accountancy Age.

“They’re ambitious to do more, and I think they could do an awful lot more.”

One of the UK’s more high-profile practitioners, Raynor led RSM Tenon through a restructuring process, followed by major acquisitions including Bentley Jennison and Vantis offices.

However, Raynor left the publically-listed firm in January 2012 after it issued a profit warning.

Michael Davis, HW Fisher’s managing partner, said: “We are an ambitious firm providing highly personal services to entrepreneurial clients, Andy will assist with the development and implementation of our strategic plans. Andy’s appointment is another demonstration of our commitment to growth.”

HW Fisher posted £23.4m in fee income for the year ending April 2011, a 6.8% increase on the previous year. It staffs 260 people, plus 29 partners, across offices in London and Watford.
