Yesterday, Pitcher Partners confirmed that the current managing director of its Perth practice, Bryan Hughes, will be taking on the role of executive chairman from 1 July.
In his new role Mr Hughes will focus on building emerging areas of the business and bringing them in line with its existing insolvency practice.
“We are now focusing on growing our leading tax, audit, advisory and private clients practice to the same level of market share and prominence as our business restructuring and insolvency service,” he said.
“We can see the market evolving and we want to stay ahead of that curve.”
Replacing Mr Hughes as the new Perth managing director will be Leon Mok, who is currently an executive director and taxation specialist.
“This is a very exciting step for the Perth practice and we are taking every opportunity in this changing market to continue the evolution and growth of the firm,” he said.
“There has been a shift in demand from clients away from immediate problem solving to asking, ‘what next’, and that’s the kind of leadership our team excels in providing.”
Pitchers Partners has said that it expects to add two executive directors in the near future to further bolster the corporate finance and audit teams.
