AIM-SPECIALIST Joseph Archer has joined PKF Littlejohn as partner.
Previously at Crowe Clark Whitehill, where he managed the audits for its capital markets clients, he has also served with Mazars, and in the corporate world with Smith’s Group and Halliburtons.
He is the first partner appointed by the firm this year, following five partner appointments in 2014. There are now 23 audit-focused partners at PKF Littlejohn, taking its total partner number to 34.
Carmine Papa, managing partner of PKF Littlejohn, said: “Joseph brings tremendous experience of the AIM-listed market. Existing clients will benefit from his valuable corporate finance insight, in particular his transactional and due diligence expertise as part of the IPO process.
“As we continue to expand our capital markets offerings, Joseph’s appointment will help us to increase the number of the firm’s listed clients.”
PKF Littlejohn rebranded from Littlejohn in July 2013 after taking its place in the PKF network, following the merger of the eponymously-named firm with BDO.
