Accounting and tax outfit Blick Rothenberg has named a new CEO; Nilesh Shah takes over the top job from Bob Rothenberg, who will continue as Senior Partner with a new role as ambassador for the firm.
Shah has headed BR’s tax practice for 15 years; he has also chaired both the European and International Tax Committees of global accounting association BKR.
Bob Rothenberg, Senior Partner at the firm: “After 20 years as Senior Partner –and 40 years at Blick Rothenberg– I am handing the leadership of the firm to Nilesh Shah with his appointment as Chief Executive of Blick Rothenberg. Much has changed over this period but our values and ethos have remained constant and I feel proud of all that we have achieved for everyone in the Blick Rothenberg community; clients, friends and ourselves alike.
“I will continue to be Senior Partner with a new role as an ambassador for the firm as well as continuing to look after a number of client relationships. Congratulations to Nilesh on this appointment; I look forward to seeing Blick Rothenberg continuing to drive forward and grow successfully under his and the other partners’ guidance.”
Nilesh Shah: “It is an honour and privilege to be appointed the CEO of Blick Rothenberg, at what is an exciting time for the firm. I have been with Blick Rothenberg for nearly 27 years, having headed up the tax practice for a large part of that period. Whilst we have ambitious plans to grow, I am determined to preserve our ethos and culture, where the focus is on our clients, the quality of our service and our people.
“We will continue to endeavour to get all three right which will allow us to remain a strong, quality practice, attracting good clients and people.”
