Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has made a trio of partner appointments in the North West.

Jacqui Baker has been promoted to partner in the audit practice. She will be based in Liverpool but will act for clients across the North West region.

In addition, the firm has recruited new partners David Hawley and Paul O’Leary to further strengthen the corporate tax and technology risk assurance teams respectively.

Jacqui is a prominent auditor based in the Liverpool office with over 16 years’ experience advising growing, entrepreneurial middle market businesses. She specialises in the consumer sector and heads up RSM’s retail sector group nationally. Her promotion took effect on 1 April 2021.

Paul joins RSM from KPMG with over 17 years’ experience advising businesses on all aspects of digital risk including cyber, third party risk, change assurance, operational resilience and governance for robotics and artificial intelligence. He also brings financial services, technology, retail, energy, construction and government sector expertise to his new role. Paul will support businesses across the North to maximise digital opportunities while mitigating risk

Kevin Duffy, RSM’s regional managing partner in the North West said: ‘These appointments reflect our strong appetite to invest and continue growing in the North West. I’m delighted to welcome all three into the partnership and I look forward to supporting them and seeing them contribute to the success of our business.

‘Jacqui has played a crucial role in supporting and growing our regional audit practice; and David and Paul bring expertise that complements and enhances our North West offering.

‘We have a strong business and really ambitious plans for the region; and I look forward to working with Jacqui, David and Paul to help shape our future.’
