Robin joins the team as a Senior Manager. He brings more than 18 years of experience to the firm, with expertise in mid-market clients, and owner-managed and Private Equity backed businesses. He said, “I’m delighted to be joining such a talented team at Claritas and I can’t wait to help grow our capabilities in what is quickly becoming a business-critical area for companies across a broad spectrum of sectors. We want to help our clients to build their resilience and bring value to their businesses. More significantly, tax is a major cost to business but, with the right advice, can be a means to add value and I look forward to working with our clients to enable them to benefit wherever possible.”
Danny is the team’s latest Manager appointment. He specialises in UK corporate and international tax, and prior to joining Claritas, had nearly 10 years of experience working in Big Four and top 10 firms. He comments, “I am hugely excited to be joining the Claritas team especially as we embark on highly ambitious growth and expansion plans. This has changed beyond recognition over the last 10 years, with the BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) projects and other multinational initiatives. Guiding clients through the challenges that those changes bring is extremely exciting and I look forward to working with some of the firm’s larger and internationally focused clients to enable them to overcome challenges and benefit from opportunities.”
Both will be based in Manchester, but their roles will also see them working closely with Claritas Tax’s teams in Birmingham and Nottingham to strengthen their corporate and international proposition across the Midlands, North West and the UK.
Matt Hodgson, Partner and Head of Claritas’ Manchester office said: “Our senior team just gets stronger and stronger. The ongoing growth of all our offices continues to establish our impressive offerings and I look forward to seeing this forward momentum sustained into 2024. I’m really pleased to welcome both Danny and Robin to the Claritas family who will play a big part in helping us deliver against our ambitious growth plans.”
Iain Wright, Founding Partner and Head of Claritas’ Birmingham office commented: “With the firm having recently been recognised as ‘Specialist Transaction Team of the Year’ at the Insider Midlands Dealmakers awards, both Danny and Robin are key hires for Claritas. We increased revenues by 30% in our financial year to 31 August 2023 and are aiming for 47% growth in 2024. Danny and Robin’s arrival are key to achieving the ambitious plans that we have. They will provide a further boost to our market-leading tax advisory service.”
