Top accountant made managing partner at UHY

One of the region’s top accountants has taken over the reins of UHY Hacker Young’s Nottingham office. Andrew Timms – who joined UHY more than a year ago – has become

office managing partner at the company, which has been in the city for 38 years. He oversees a team of 75 people, based in Park Row, offering a wide range of business advisory services, including audit, cloud accounting, personal and corporate tax planning, payroll and transaction support. He said: “I’m really excited to be given the opportunity to help drive

UHY’s Nottingham office forward and, working with my fellow partners, cement our position as one of the city’s leading accountancy practices. “We have ambitious growth plans for the firm in Nottingham and the

wider East Midlands region, and the business is very well positioned to take advantage of the market. “We’ve got the best team of people UHY has ever had. They have a huge

amount of know-how and there are some extremely talented people coming through the ranks, who I hope will form the partnership of the future.” Andrew started his career at Page Kirk, where he spent four years as an

audit trainee, before moving to Deloitte as a senior manager. A seven-year stint was followed by 11 years as a partner at business advisory firm Cooper Parry, culminating in his move to UHY in February 2019 as a partner, focusing on owner-managed businesses. He succeeds Simon Browning, who joined UHY at the start of 2014 and

became partner in charge of the firm’s Nottingham office in 2017. Andrew said: “Simon got the process of change started and did a great job of moving the team together under one roof to our current base in Park Row.” Subarna Banerjee, managing partner of UHY's London and Nottingham

offices, added: “Andrew has the commitment, ambition and experience to continue our growth and we’re delighted to have him driving UHY’s Nottingham office forward.”
