Top professional services firm, Bishop Fleming continues its growth as it appoints a new head of risk assurance.
The firm, which delivers audit, accounting, tax, and advisory services to businesses, has increased its headcount by 5% in the last year.
Its latest senior appointment is Alastair Campbell, who joins the firm from RSM as Head of Risk Assurance and Internal Audit, covering all the firm’s seven offices.
Alastair has 25-years of experience working with a wide range of clients across the public, not-for-profit and corporate sectors in the South West and beyond, qualifying with Deloitte in Bristol before joining RSM.
He will embark on helping the firm with their continued growth expansion and widening client service ambitions.
Alastair said: “I am excited about the opportunity to join such a highly respected, fast-growing and ambitious firm to harmonise, consolidate and expand our internal audit and wider risk assurance offering.
"All organisations can benefit from a greater focus on the challenges that will stop or hinder them achieving their aims, and in particular, we will be able to work with them to ensure they have clear assurances that these challenges can be overcome, side-stepped or ideally avoided altogether.
"It’s clear that building long-term relationships, client service and professionalism are all key to Bishop Fleming’s approach to clients, and these are also all important to me. It is also nice personally to have the opportunity to join a firm repeatedly recognised and accredited as an employer of choice.”
Joe Scaife, partner said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Alastair to Bishop Fleming. His appointment represents a significant enhancement to our existing internal audit and wider risk assurance offering and demonstrates our commitment to continue to grow our wider assurance and advisory services to clients from all sectors.
Alastair’s skills, experience and clear focus for client service will bring great benefits to businesses and organisations across the region. This is an exciting time for the firm following on from our centenary and as we pursue a number of key strategies for growth.”
Bishop Fleming previously celebrated its centenary year, raising £150,000 for 60 different charities. It was crowned ‘Business of the Year’ at the National Chamber Awards. The firm is ranked in the top 30 of the UK’s national league table of accountancy firms and has seven offices across the South West and Midlands.
