PKF Littlejohn, the London member firm of PKF International, has appointed Rhodri Whitlock as an assurance and advisory partner.
The appointment follows the recent addition of three partners from Fitzgerald & Law last month and others last year.
Carmine Papa, managing partner, said: “Rhodri’s appointment supports our plan to grow the firm both in size and breadth of market coverage. Rhodri’s skills provide a powerful bridge between our core financial services practice and our increasingly international and sector based firm. Rhodri’s contribution and experience will help the firm to grow to its target income of £40m by 2018.”
Whitlock brings over 20 years’ partner experience in audit and corporate advisory and has “significant experience of working with public companies, private equity/venture capital-backed businesses and private companies”.
Over the last 15 years he has worked extensively with the investment community specifically VCTs, infrastructure funds and private investment funds.
