IAN CLIFFE has taken over the managing partner role at haysmacintyre from Simon Wilks.
Cliffe has been a partner with the firm since 2001, holding a number of senior roles including head of the audit department, leading its corporate finance divisions, along with being an integral part of its management team.
Cliffe said the firm was going through “exciting times”, as it looked to grow sector specialisms within its core practice areas. “As managing partner, my focus is to build on our current position and continue to give our clients a premium advisory service in what is an ever changing environment.”
Wilks steps down after six years in the role, having led the firm through its recent office location.
The firm sits at 35 in the Accountancy Age Top 50 survey of firms, with £18.3m in revenues.
