A chartered accountancy, business advisory and financial planning group has bolstered its audit, accounting and advisory team following the appointment of a new director.

Daniel Bowles will be leading a mixed portfolio of audit and non-audit clients operating across a diverse range of industries at Blackburn’s PM+M.

The audit team at PM+M works with all types of clients from large corporations to SMEs and not-for-profit organisations, across a variety of sectors, providing tailored advice on all manners of audit, assurance, and advisory matters.

Mr Bowles will strengthen the team and support their growth plans, closely collaborating with colleagues across all departments and playing an integral part in developing PM+M’s reach right across the North West.

Mr Bowles has worked in the finance sector for 23 years and joins PM+M from Topping Partnership which is based in Trafford Park. 

He worked there for 21 years and in 2016 became the firm’s audit compliance principal. Prior to that he worked at Cowgills.

Chris Johnson, partner at PM+M, said: “Daniel has a fantastic pedigree in accountancy practice, so we are delighted that he is now part of PM+M.

“His dedication to delivering a first-class service for his clients really resonated with us and we are confident that he will add huge value to our clients and our own business.”

Mr Bowles added: “My whole career has been about working with managing directors and business owners to help them develop their companies.

“My new role at PM+M felt like a great opportunity to do that in a forward-thinking and innovative organisation.

“My focus is now firmly set on delivering for my clients and helping PM+M achieve its vision of being the best North West firm of finance professionals.”
