LITTLEJOHN has recruited its partner Carmine Papa to managing partner with effect from 1 June.
This is the second major recent change for the firm which earlier this month announced it would join PKF International as a member on 1 July when it will rebrand to PKF Littlejohn. It will cease its membership with PrimeGlobal on 30 June.
Papa (pictured) has been with Littlejohn for more than 30 years, latterly as partner in the financial services division and head of the business services division – which comprises 23 partners and 88 staff. The division is made up of the audit, assurance business support and corporate finance services as well as its specialist insurance arm.
He succeeds Paul Hopper who will continue to advise clients in the private, not-for-profit and public sectors, including schools and the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid office. He will also continue to serve on Littlejohn’s management board.
“I look forward to working with the partners and staff to continue to build on Littlejohn’s strong position, particularly in our core markets – insurance, the capital markets, international and not for profit,” said Papa.
“These are interesting and exciting times for the firm. In particular, joining the PKF International network on 1 July opens up significant opportunities.”
Littlejohn ranked 38 in the Accountancy Age’s Top 50 +50 2012 survey of firms with £16.9m of fee income.
