Former Mazars UK head takes first BKL chairman role

David Evans to join Berg Kaprow Lewis as its first non-exec chairman

FORMER Mazars UK senior partner David Evans has joined Berg Kaprow Lewis (BKL) as its first non-executive chairman.

The corporate finance expert joins the north London firm having served ni three terms as Mazar’s UK head, leaving in 2012.

BKL managing partner Jeff Hartstone said the appointment was part of plans to have “bright and remarkable people” on the board as the firm made plans to grow and develop over the next few years. “…David’s insight and guidance will be invaluable as we roll those out,” said Hartstone.

Evans said: “Berg Kaprow Lewis is an exciting business, with some deep specialisms, exceptional people and ambitious plans, and I’m really looking forward to working with them.”

During Evans nine-year reign Mazars UK went through great change, including a merger with MRI Moores Rowland. He also saw the firm through tough times, including a near 5% reduction in its UK staff numbers during 2009.

BKL is ranked 75th in the Accountancy Age Top 50 +50 survey of firms, with £8.2m in fee income for the year ending 31 March 2013.
