BHP boosts team with partner appointment

16th October 2020

Yorkshire and Derbyshire leading accountancy firm, BHP, has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of Audit and Advisory Partner Jamie Williams.

Jamie, who has a background in providing audit and advisory services with private, family owned and entrepreneurial businesses, will be utilising his years of experience to help clients achieve their growth ambitions and will be based in BHP’s Cleckheaton office.

Returning to the UK after a four-year stint leading a big 4 office on the West Coast of Ireland, Jamie is delighted to have relocated back to Yorkshire with his family to take up his role with BHP.

Jamie commented: “I spoke to a number of the partners before I joined BHP and I was overwhelmed by their enthusiasm to work in BHP. The ambition and drive of the managing partners Hamish & Lisa really appealed to me and having spoken to clients I was really impressed with the quality and breadth of the services BHP provided. As a firm they have a fantastic client base and are very much focused on using their strong personal relationships to help provide outstanding levels of service and ensuring that they help their clients prosper and grow.

“There is a young partnership group in place whom are all working together towards a common goal – which really appealed to me, I see good opportunities in the market place right now and I really wanted to be a part of that with BHP.

“My drive comes from helping clients and building and developing teams. Whilst we are currently living through challenging times, I believe that businesses need their advisors now more than ever to help them survive and thrive”.

Hamish Morrison, Managing Partner at BHP, said: “Jamie is a key appointment for us and brings a wealth of experience to the firm.

“The Cleckheaton office will really benefit from his passion and enthusiasm and we know that he will enhance our service provision across the board.”  

BHP was recently recognised by the Sunday Times in their 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the second year running, ranking number 84 on the 2020 list. Marking its 20th year, the hard-fought and nationally celebrated list recognises the very best in employee engagement around the country.
