“It’s a challenging but exciting time to take on leadership of the local office. I’m looking forward to ensuring we continue to help businesses navigate a fast changing and complex economic environment. We have a huge breadth of services we can offer companies in the Central South, and we will be further investing in our advisory and consulting teams over the coming year.”

We have such a great local team and I’ve always been so impressed by the dedication and care with which they support the businesses we work with. I look forward to seeing what the coming years bring under Steve’s direction.”
