Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed Rob McCarthy as a new financial due diligence partner – further strengthening the firm’s offering across the North.
Rob brings extensive knowledge of buy and sell side financial due diligence projects across a wide variety of sectors for private equity, corporate and banking clients, with a specialism in financial services.
Rob is a prominent adviser with over 24 years’ experience working in practice and industry, including over a decade working within a Big 4 firm based in Manchester and New York. He joins from an independent advisory firm, where he acted for clients across the North.
In his new role, Rob will work alongside Steve Green in the North West and Martin Athey in Yorkshire and the North East to support acquisitive businesses and funding institutions with strategic regional, national and international transactions across the North.
Tony Edwards, RSM’s head of corporate finance in Yorkshire and the North East, said: “It’s good to welcome Rob to the team. He brings a wealth of commercial and sector experience that further strengthens our Northern offering – putting us in a strong position to support dynamic businesses across the North to succeed through facilitating quality transactions.”
Rob McCarthy said: “RSM is a prominent player in the corporate finance and financial due diligence market. The firm is at the heart of what is a robust transactional market in the North, despite the current underlying economic and political uncertainties.
“I look forward to working with Steve, Martin and the growing team to build on the success of the practice – helping to support more capital providers and businesses that are undertaking transactions in the region.”
