Award-winning PKF Smith Cooper continue to expand team with a number of new appointments

Midlands-based tax, accountancy, and business advisory firm, PKF Smith Cooper, have been enjoying a successful year, building up many of their service lines – with their tax team notably bolstered by 6 appointments in recent months.

This success is reflected in the firm’s September announcement, where they revealed that they had joined the global family of PKF International, placing them firmly at the forefront of the compliance and regulatory world, whilst enhancing their appeal as an employer to potential candidates.

The new team members are spread across the firm’s four core offices – situated in Derby, Nottingham, Birmingham, and Ashbourne – and include a mix of talented graduates brimming with enthusiasm, as well as skilled specialists who have accumulated a wealth of experience to benefit a more senior position.

At the firm’s Nottingham office, Megan Whiley and Adam Fox have joined the tax team in the positions of Tax Assistant and Assistant Indirect Tax Advisor, respectively.

Megan – a passionate Panthers fan – has stated that she’s “most looking forward to learning about different businesses and their unique tax queries” during her tenure at PKF Smith Cooper. Adam, meanwhile, a recent Accounting and Finance graduate from the University of Chester and a competitive swimmer, is excited “to meet new colleagues and embark on a professional career”.

The Birmingham office welcomed violin and Lego aficionado, Matthew Taylor – who is excited to “meet new colleagues and help to positively impact clients” – as a Tax Assistant, while Ashbourne has done the same for running-enthusiast, Rachel Leigh, who can’t wait to “learn and gain experience in a completely new field”.

PKF Smith Cooper’s tax team have frequently been the subject of praise in the past due to their personable, client-centred approach, volume of knowledge, and ability to tailor advice and solutions to benefit individual clients. These new recruits – possessing a range of skills, talents, and pursuits – demonstrate the potential needed to further expand the reach and capability of the tax team across all offices.

Badminton-lover, Simran Chohan, who has joined the firm’s Derby office as a Tax Assistant, states that she’s “looking forward to putting the tax theory learned at University into practice”.

Vanessa Johnson, the Derby tax team’s new Tax Senior, echoes the sentiments outlined above: “I’m looking forward to getting back into the world of tax, getting to know my new colleagues and clients across the firm, and working together to provide an efficient, professional corporate tax service.”

With such keen, skilled recruits across the company’s core offices, PKF Smith Cooper are poised on the cusp of further success and notability, whilst nurturing the careers of talented individuals within their teams.
