Gillman to step down from Price Bailey role

Long-serving practice head Peter Gillman to step down as Price Bailey's executive chairman

A 44-YEAR CAREER at one of the UK’s biggest firms is set to end, with executive chairman Peter Gillman to step down.

Gillman trained with the firm, became its managing partner in 2001 and its first MD in 2004 when it converted to an LLP. He will continue in an advisory role to the board on a consultancy agreement.

Current MD Martin Clapson said: “Under his leadership the firm enjoyed great success and completed significant strategic changes – Peter can be rightly proud of the positive difference he made to the firm.”

Price Bailey has picked up many awards in recent years, including Audit Firm of the Year at the 2013 British Accountancy Awards. It has also steadily risen up the Accountancy Age Top 50 league table, to 29th with fee income of £21m.

Gillman said: “I have been very fortunate to work with terrific people both clients and colleagues in my time at Price Bailey and I know that I leave the firm well placed to face the challenges of the modern business environment. It has been great fun and I feel enormously privileged. I look forward to continued contact with the firm in my consultancy role.”
