Alan will join already established Partners Iain Wright and Matt Hodgson. The new office is an extension to Claritas’ already successful Birmingham and Manchester offices, with the latter opening in 2019. The London office forms part of Claritas’ impressive expansion plans which sees them projecting to open new office bases within each of the UK’s major cities over the next five years.
Iain Wright, Partner, commented “This is something that we have been planning for some time, so to be able to enter the new tax year with a brand-new offering in the heart of London, is something we’re all excited about. It also gives us the flexibility and agility of being based in the three major cities within the UK. With Alan joining us as Partner, he brings with him the years of knowledge and experience of being London based, we’re pleased to welcome him to the team”.
Matt Hodgson added “Despite the obvious challenges of 2020, the whole team have continued to work incredibly hard, turning what could have been a disastrous year into one of our most successful. It is only right that we should now look forward and capitalise on our plans with the opening of our third office in London. Having Alan onboard to help with this will be invaluable to both Claritas and our clients. His experience, knowledge and network are fundamental in helping us achieve a fast start In the London market”.
Alan will bring with him an extensive tax background, having previously worked for Deloitte and PwC, as well as having experience working at Partner level within MHA Macintyre Hudson and Kingston Smith. Most recently he has operated his own successful Tax consultancy business across the South East.
Alan Craddock added “I’m really pleased to be joining Claritas, their expansion plans are impressive, as is their growing client base across the UK. I’m looking forward to bringing my knowledge to the established team and hitting the ground running, it’s looking like being a very busy 2021 for the business.”
