Business News

EY has promoted Gareth Mee to partner, Shannon Ramnarine to associate partner and appointed Andy Roughan as a director in its growing Financial Services (FS) practice, as the professional services firm continues to expand in Bristol and across the South West and Wales.

Gareth leads EY’s FS Advisory practice across the South West and Wales – a team that has grown to 40 people in three years, with plans to grow to 100 by 2020.

Gareth also leads EY’s Global Investment Advisory practice – a team of 70 responsible for independent advice to the institutional investment market and to the asset management market.

Shannon leads EY’s Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) practice in Bristol – a specialist team of five people providing assistance on critical issues arising from changes in accounting standards and regulatory requirements, with plans to double in size by 2020.

Andy has been appointed to lead a tax practice focused on the financial services sector in the South West & Wales market. He is a corporate tax specialist with over 16 years’ experience providing audit, compliance and advisory services, and is looking to recruit into the team.

Andy Blackmore, partner at EY and Head of Financial Services in the South West and Wales, said: “EY’s South West & Wales Financial Services practice has grown to over 100 people in three years.

“These appointments, along with the expansion of the tax team, reflect the firm’s continued investment in our people, business and brand.

“Gareth and Shannon’s promotions are a reflection of the dedication both have shown in growing our financial services business over the past three years and of their significant talent and skills. Both are a key part of my local leadership team and I look forward to continuing to work with them as we aim to double in size by 2020.

“I am also delighted to have recruited Andy into the team; having a corporate tax director specialised in the FS sector means that more of the services we provide can be delivered locally, increasing our flexibility and connections across the region.”

Andrew Perkins, managing partner at EY in the South West and Wales, added: “We have big ambitions for our regional business and are delighted to be growing our team in the South West and Wales. Gareth, Shannon and Andy will each have an important role to play in helping us achieve our growth ambitions.”
