Tax partner promotions at PKF Francis Clark: Sarah Brown and Mark Bishop

 In PKF Francis Clark

Private client tax specialist Sarah Brown and VAT expert Mark Bishop have been promoted to partners at PKF Francis Clark, the South West’s largest independent firm of chartered accountants.
Exeter-based Sarah joined PKF Francis Clark in 2013, having started her career with a Big Four accountancy firm. Her main focus is advising high-net-worth individuals and internationally mobile clients on a range of compliance and tax planning needs, including residence and domicile issues.
Sarah said: “I’m excited to become part of the partner team and am looking forward to being involved in strategic decision-making to drive our firm forwards. I also enjoy developing and mentoring colleagues in our tax team, spotting talent and helping them to grow their technical expertise.”
Mark is based in Plymouth, where he helps lead the firm’s VAT and customs team. An engineer by training, he worked in the electronics industry before spending 12 years at HM Revenue & Customs working in VAT compliance. In 2016, he joined PKF Francis Clark to put his expertise into practice advising clients from the other side of the fence.
“It’s a huge privilege to be invited to join the partner group, and it illustrates the commitment PKF Francis Clark makes to training and development,” said Mark. “I’m energised by the fresh challenges and experiences that will come from stepping up to this leadership position, while continuing to help our clients navigate the complexities and vagaries of VAT.”
Paul Crocker, CEO at PKF Francis Clark, said: “We pride ourselves on supporting our people to develop and progress, whether they have trained with us, joined from another firm or changed careers. Sarah and Mark’s journeys to becoming partners are a perfect illustration of this.
“Their progression to this next step reflects their talent and dedication to serving our clients. I’m delighted to welcome them to the partnership and wish them every success in this next chapter of their PKF Francis Clark careers.”
