read timeRead time: 2 mins
PKF has announced the promotion of two new Partners and a further strengthening of its Leadership Team.

Rochelle Duffy, who heads up the firm’s Technical team, and Karen Egan, from its Business Services division, have both been made Partners.

Rochelle joined PKF almost a decade ago and has been overseeing its technical and compliance team since 2016.  Karen has been at PKF since 2005 and was promoted to Director in 2018. 

In addition, Selina Edis has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer of the firm’s commercial operations. 

Dominic Roberts, Managing Partner, said: “Helping staff to fulfil their potential is one of the most important responsibilities of a Managing Partner, which is why I am particularly pleased and proud to announce these promotions of long-serving members of our team.  All three promotions are well deserved and vital to the firm’s future plans.

“PKF’s rapid growth over the past few years – and, in particular, our strength in the listed markets, where we are now the fourth-ranked auditor of AIM listed companies – has meant that Rochelle’s role as head of our Technical team has become increasingly prominent and ever-more important.  Maintaining the highest technical standards will be vital to our continued success as a firm; Rochelle has already demonstrated that she is more than equal to the task and I am delighted that these important aspects of our firm’s operations are in such safe hands. 

“Karen has clearly demonstrated to those who work with her – at all levels of seniority – and to her clients that she has what it takes to be a Partner.  She lives our Values and will, no doubt, continue to be an inspiring role model and mentor within the Business Services team. 

“Selina has made a significant contribution to the Leadership Team and the firm as a whole over the past few years.  Our client-facing divisions have seen significant growth recently and it is important that we build on this momentum; Selina is, without question, the right person to drive forward this vital strategic initiative for the firm.

“I feel privileged to work alongside people such as Rochelle, Karen and Selina and wish them all continued success in the future.”
