The London office of advisory firm Dow Schofield Watts has welcomed its ninth team member just nine months after its launch. The latest arrival is Philip Hodgson who has relocated to London to take on the role of Corporate Finance Executive.

An economics graduate from the University of Newcastle, Philip qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PWC, before joining Parkdean Resorts, a private equity-backed business, where he was a key member of the mergers and acquisitions team.

Established in 2002, Dow Schofield Watts now has a team of over 60 professionals, drawn mainly from big four firms and based in offices in Manchester, Leeds and London.

Dave Graham, who heads the Dow Schofield Watts London office, says: “Philip’s arrival will help us to expand our London coverage following a successful first nine months that has seen us grow from a standing start to nine full-time members. We foresee continued growth over the next we months, driven by demand from clients and ‘big four’ professionals attracted by our partner-led advisory model.”
