Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed a new tax director to strengthen its local and regional tax practice in the north.
Mark Edeson has been appointed as tax director and will be based at RSM in Hull, acting for a range of local, regional and national clients.
Mark, a qualified chartered tax advisor, joins RSM from EY, where he spent over 20 years working with a large portfolio of approximately 150 local, national and international clients, including private equity-backed and listed businesses. At RSM, Mark will be advising businesses across a broad range of sectors, including food and drink and manufacturing.
Mark’s appointment in RSM’s Hull office follows significant local and regional investment, with the firm appointing Hull-based Richard Hall as its first national head of sustainability in February 2022. In addition, RSM also recruited a record number of trainees in Yorkshire and the Humber in 2022, taking on 54 students, graduates and school leavers across all service lines.
Mark Edeson, tax director at RSM, said: ‘I’m delighted to be joining RSM’s Hull office to continue my career in the city I have worked in my entire professional life, and where I have cemented strong connections with the local business community. After spending almost 24 years at EY in Hull, I’m looking forward to a new challenge and working with the largest accountancy firm in the city.’
Andy Capes, office managing partner in RSM’s Hull office, said: ‘Mark’s appointment reflects our continued investment in Hull and the Humber to provide an expert service to our local, regional and national clients. Mark brings with him a wealth of experience and I look forward to seeing how our tax offering evolves as a result of his appointment.’
He added: ‘As the only remaining national accountancy firm with an office in Hull, we are committed to the Humber region and recognise our responsibility to support local businesses which are essential to the region’s economic growth. We are also focused on employing people locally; providing accessible work opportunities, investing in their development and empowering them to shape a long and rewarding career at RSM.’
