Dan’s appointment, the firm’s third Partner hire this year, brings the number of specialist Capital Markets partners in the team to nine.
Dan brings almost 20 years’ experience in auditing listed and private companies, most recently as Head of London Audit and Head of Financial Services.
Dan has considerable expertise in the natural resources, financial services and TMT sectors. He has worked with many AIM listed oil and gas and mineral resources explorers and both public and private companies in the financial services and technology sectors.
PKF is currently the second largest auditor of AIM listed companies and the sixth largest of all LSE companies with over 130 clients on either the Main Market or AIM.
Dominic Roberts, Managing Partner, said: “Our Capital Markets practice is growing strongly both in terms of the increasing number of companies it represents, but also the size and complexity of those companies.
“Dan has worked on a wide portfolio of clients from growing LLPs through to large international groups, assisting them on a range of issues such as International Financial Reporting Standards, IPOs, reverse takeovers and financial due diligence. We want to harness that valuable experience and broad skills-base to support the continued growth of the practice.”
Dan Hutson added: “I was attracted to PKF because of its client list and rapid expansion. I’m looking forward to working with the team to continue the growth trend. I’m particularly eager to engage and develop relationships with colleagues across the international network.”
Dan is also enthusiastic about lending his team building experience to further develop the team having previously been the Chair of the National Talent Management Group at a previous employer.
PKF is the UK’s 11th largest accountancy brand and the ninth largest audit practice. With over 180 partners and more than 2,050 staff working from 32 locations, PKF supports clients across the UK and, through our international network, the globe.
