RSM, the audit, tax and consulting firm, has strengthened its private client team by adding Chris Etherington as a private tax partner at the firm’s Leeds office.

Prior to his appointment, Mr Etherington trained and then worked for PwC for almost 12 years. As a leading member of PwC’s private client and private business team in Leeds, he specialised in providing tax advice to individuals and family owned businesses across the region.

In his new role, Mr Etherington will provide compliance and advisory support for a growing number of private clients to manage tax, wealth and succession planning, whilst working closely with the Yorkshire private client team to grow the practice and its offering.

He said: “I look forward to drawing on my experience to help individuals, their families and businesses to manage their tax affairs, ensuring they meet their obligations to HMRC and plan for the future at a time when the rules have never been more complex.”

Kevin O’Connor, RSM’s regional managing partner for Yorkshire and the North East, added: “It’s great to welcome Chris to the Leeds team. He will play a pivotal role in the continued growth of our private client practice – bringing a wealth of experience that will allow us to support more high net worth individuals with complex tax planning needs.
