Cooper Parry reshuffles management

A NEW chief executive and chairman have been appointed to top 40 firm Cooper Parry.

Current COO Ade Cheatham steps up to take the chief executive role from Jeremy Bowler, after 15 years in the top seat. Cheatham joined the firm in 2004. Bowler has taken on the chairman role from Colin Shaw after three terms.
Shaw takes a ‘market-facing’ role, looking to grow its portfolio of private and family-owned businesses.

All three keep positions on the firm’s management board, alongside fellow partners Richard jones and Andrew Honarmand.

The firm scooped the Mid-Tier Firm of the Year Award at the British Accountancy Awards last November. It posted £15.78m in fee income for the year ending April 2012, a 10% increase on the previous year, according to the Accountancy Age Top 50 +50 survey.

All three retain positions on the firm’s management Board alongside fellow partners, Richard Jones and Andrew Honarmand.

Bowler said: “Ade is ideally placed to take the firm forward. He has a strong grasp of the challenges and opportunities facing our clients, excellent people skills, and a strategic vision for the future of our firm”.

“I am delighted and honoured to have the opportunity to lead Cooper Parry and succeed Jeremy who has been a fantastic CEO, driving the development of the firm to what it is today,” said Cheatham.

“We have a clear and simple vision, to be number one in the markets that we operate”.

The firm operates out of offices in Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and London.
