A NEW office managing partner has been appointed at Baker Tilly.
Kate Reid will head up the Bristol and Bath office for the firm and will drive building its relationship with Baker Tilly’s Swindon office. She joined as a partner in 2010 having served as a head of finance for a retail chain. She has also held a partner role at Watts Gregory.
An audit partner, Reid is also a business advisory specialist with experience in growth strategies, systems and process, and change management.
Reid said: ‘The economy in the south west is showing encouraging signs of growth so it’s a very exciting time to be taking on this role. Over the coming months, we expect to invest significantly in new talent so that we enhance our services and support to our SME and owner managed business clients to help them achieve their business goals.’
The two offices have seven partners and 100 staff, which together offer a full range of audit, accountancy, tax, corporate finance, restructuring and business advisory services.
