Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed tax partner Claire Spencer to strengthen the firm’s corporate tax capability in the Midlands.

She will lead a newly expanded team of corporate tax specialists out of Birmingham.

Spencer will draw upon her 17 plus years experience in Manchester working with large corporates and international groups.

In her new role she will look to replicate her success in Manchester to grow RSM’s Birmingham offering, while driving collaboration between the two offices.

Spencer said: ”RSM has a strong team here in Birmingham, and I am very proud to have been asked to lead it and expand our tax capability in the region. Given the current uncertainty around the future of the economy, the next few years will present challenges and opportunities in equal measure as local businesses adapt to the evolving environment. RSM can support businesses throughout this period to be agile and to take advantage of new opportunities. Working more collaboratively across our Birmingham and Manchester offices, and indeed nationally, will only serve to strengthen our client service in a region that offers so much as a prosperous business community.”

Mark Taylor, regional managing partner for RSM in the Midlands, said: “Claire is someone I have known for several years and I am absolutely delighted that she has agreed to take on this key role here in Birmingham. The addition of Claire is the latest in a series of exciting investments in our tax advisory capability in the Midlands over recent times. She is a natural leader, an expert business adviser and someone who has demonstrated the capacity to make a real difference. Claire’s move once again illustrates RSM’s flexibility in matching talent to opportunity.”
