Grant Thornton unveils two senior hires at its North West tax team
Sean Mitchell has returned to the firm, which has offices in Liverpool, Manchester and most recently at Sci-Tech Daresbury after three years at BDO, while David Hawley is promoted from within
Accountancy firm Grant Thornton has boosted its 130-strong North West tax team with the appointment of two directors amid what it claims is rising demand for advice as a result of Brexit, changes in the law and increased regulation.
Sean Mitchell has returned to the firm, which has offices in Liverpool, Manchester and most recently at Sci-Tech Daresbury after three years at BDO. At the same time, science and tech sector specialist David Hawley has been promoted from within.
Partner and North West Head of Tax Paul Scully said: “We have ambitious plans to continue our growth by investing in talent in specialist services such as capital allowances, tax risk and transfer pricing as well as investment into our core entrepreneurial tax business.
“We are very excited that Sean is coming back into the fold. A glorious returner, Sean brings a valuable skill set in terms of private client expertise, deep technical specialism and being very engaging and good with clients.
“David Hawley is one of the rising stars of our firm and plays an important part in our tech and innovation group, advising and supporting knowledge-intensive businesses.”
Mr Mitchell, who spent 17 years with Grant Thornton before his previous move, specialises in advising family-owned business, entrepreneurs and mid-market firms on UK and international corporate tax matters.
