PKF LITTLEJOHN has appointed insurance broking specialist Paul Goldwin as a partner.
Goldwin (pictured) was formerly a partner in LMG Accountants where he specialised in advising insurance intermediaries and their owners, Accountancy Age’s sister title Insurance Age reports.
He originally trained with insurance specialists Neville Russell in London before setting up LMG in 1996.
“PKF Littlejohn has a great reputation in the London insurance market and I am delighted to be joining the team,” said Goldwin.
The accountancy firm’s insurance division now comprises seven dedicated partners, including John Needham, who heads the firm’s broking team and sits on the FCA’s client money working party, and the managing partner Carmine Papa.
Papa said: “Paul brings in-depth knowledge of the issues and challenges facing insurance brokers and enables us to continue to grow our insurance practice and provide expertise to the London and wider UK markets.”
In April last year Littlejohn joined the PKF international network creating PKF Littlejohn. The move came less than a year after PKF was acquired by BDO.
