Notts accountancy firm appoints new partner

Nottingham-based accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of a new partner.

Roger Merchant has more than 30 years’ audit experience internationally, having worked as a partner in both London and Warsaw, before moving to the East Midlands 20 years ago.

He is working across the charity, family business and construction sectors in his new role at UHY. In addition to audit and assurance services, he will be providing internal audit, due diligence and corporate finance advice to his clients.

Merchant has joined the business during a period of growth, with the firm having relocated its Nottingham city centre operation to new premises earlier this year.

He said: “I am delighted to be furthering my career here in the East Midlands, as it’s a diverse and innovative region. I am particularly pleased to be joining UHY Hacker Young during such an exciting period of growth.

“I am hoping to utilise my wealth of local knowledge and audit experience to support UHY’s plans in the region, which I am certain will present a number of exciting opportunities to the firm. I want to build my long term future here and as a partner I will be able to work alongside likeminded individuals here in Nottingham”.

Merchant is a trustee and chair of the audit committee with Derby Museums and represents Leicester and Northampton on the national council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants. He is also a director of Leicester Business Voice, ensuring business needs are taken into account by key decision makers.

Phil Oliver, managing partner at UHY Hacker Young in Nottingham, said: “We are pleased Roger has chosen join us as a partner here at UHY Hacker Young. He has a fantastic reputation across the region and brings invaluable experience and knowledge with him.

“We have continued to grow our team here and we are certain Roger will help us to continue delivering a fantastic service to our existing clients and push the business forwards”.
