Accountancy firm Moore Kingston Smith has appointed Graham Tyler as chairman following the retirement of senior partner, Martin Muirhead
Tyler spent 13 years as a partner at Moore Kingston Smith with seven years on the firm’s governance and executive boards and the new position will see Tyler step into a senior leadership role joining managing partner Maureen Penfold.
Tyler said: ‘It has been truly rewarding to be a part of the growth and development of the media team over the past 13 years. As chairman I’m looking forward to progressing the firm even further, fully supporting Maureen, our partners and all our people, and enabling the business to maximise opportunities for our clients.’
Having worked in the media industry for over 30 years, Tyler specialises in advising clients on businesses issues involving funding, tax planning, profit retention and business strategy. He led an initiative to build the firm’s presence in Los Angeles, as UK media clients increasingly required support for their businesses in dual markets. Since then, he has been advising media clients on both sides of the Atlantic on key business issues..
The audit and advisory firm has more than 60 partners and 600 staff both in and around London. As the London firm of the Moore UK network, it is also a key member of the Moore global network, an international network of over 30,000 people across 100 countries.
Managing partner Maureen Penfold said: ‘Graham’s appointment as chairman is a natural next stage in the ongoing development of the firm. He will be actively involved in promoting Moore Kingston Smith globally and building on the close ties we have already established within the Moore global network.’
Tyler succeeds Muirhead, who is retiring from his role as senior partner, but will remain involved with the firm as a consultant. Muirhead has been a Moore Kingston Smith partner for over 25 years, leading the property sector.
