GRANT THORNTON has made three senior appointments to its Yorkshire practice.
Dan Rosinke joins as a partner in transaction advisory services; Martin Barron joins as a partner in recovery and reorganisation; and Rachel Engwell as a partner in tax.
Rosinke joins Grant Thornton’s transaction advisory services team from Yorkshire Bank where he was head of specialist and acquisition finance for east England. Prior to his ten years working in the banking sector, he spent over nine years with PwC, the majority being in transaction services, before leaving in 2006 to join nabCapital. He was also national head of construction for Yorkshire Bank.
He will lead Grant Thornton’s transaction advisory and due diligence services to businesses in Yorkshire and the North East and will focus on developing the firm’s wider advisory offering and practice within the region.
Barron began his career in audit before transferring to restructuring when he joined PwC in 1996. He moved to Deloitte in 2000 and has been working in the Yorkshire region since 2003. Engwell joins from EY with whom she trained.
Andy Wood, practice leader for Grant Thornton in Leeds, said: “These latest partner appointments will support our continued ambitious plans in the region, helping us to cement our position as the go-to firm for growth for dynamic businesses. Dan, Martin and Rachel are all quality individuals. They are all really well connected in the market.”
Leaders in professional services such as accountancy require a particular skillset. Chief executives in such roles must be able to build consensus for strategic change with a range of client-facing partners, while retaining a lucid focus on service delivery
