RSM makes key senior hires in the East Midlands

Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed two new partners to strengthen and expand the firm’s corporate tax capability in the East Midlands.

Simon Browning and Michael McLaughlin will be based at RSM’s Nottingham office, and add to the firm’s two recently promoted tax partners: Leicester-based Sheetal Sanghvi and Nottingham-based Mike Plant.

Simon Browning brings over 20 years of experience working primarily with owner managed and private equity (PE) based businesses across the East Midlands region. With extensive experience in building and growing specialist teams, Simon will look to further bolster RSM’s existing tax team to strengthen its ability to serve clients with multiple needs, and to build skills to deliver locally.

Michael McLaughlin joins after 19 years with a big four firm, where he specialised in working with listed and PE-backed businesses with an international footprint. Michael brings a strong working knowledge of the retail and consumer, manufacturing, and financial services sectors within the East Midlands region.

The tax team is further bolstered by Sheetal Sanghvi’s promotion to partner. She advises middle market and large businesses and heads up the firm’s R&D business across the Midlands, East Anglia and the South West. Last year the R&D scheme provided over £180m in tax relief to East Midlands-based businesses alone.

Mike Plant, who was also promoted to partner, covers corporate tax, focusing largely on advising mid-market companies, international businesses and private equity-backed firms, and enjoys serving clients across the East Midlands.

Simon Browning said: “I’m delighted to join RSM. The fundamental strengths of the business are what attracted me, not to mention the firm’s confidence in increased investment in these uncertain times – that’s exciting. It is a business that already enjoys great success and is well placed to continue to build on this.”

Michael McLaughlin said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the team. RSM is not only a business that enjoys a significant, diverse and growing market share at a national level, but one that offers a tax advisory practice that leads the East Midlands region in terms of its size and capability.”

Richard King, office managing partner for RSM in Nottingham, said: “I’m thrilled with our new appointments.

“Looking to the future, as the first-choice adviser to middle market leaders here in the East Midlands, our breadth of service line and sector capabilities, coupled with our unrivalled regional presence, make these appointments together with our future investment plans a very exciting prospect indeed. I look forward to working closely with Simon and Michael.

“At what is a very difficult time for businesses across the region, I’m confident that Simon and Michael will play a very significant role in supporting RSM’s clients through the ongoing crisis and beyond.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
