Business advisory firm Quantuma has appointed Rob Parry as a partner to its Manchester office, as it expands its North West presence.

Rob has almost 30 years’ industry experience as a specialist forensic accountant, with a UK-wide, and international, remit. He joins from the Manchester office of a global accountancy firm, where he served for 24 years. Previously, he was an accountant and management consultant at KPMG.

Rob acts as an expert witness, providing evidence and advisory support on corporate transaction and shareholder disputes, company and share valuation, loss of profit from breach of contract, compulsory purchase and professional indemnity, alongside complex loss of earnings cases. He acts as an independent expert determiner, which also gives him valuable insight when preparing submissions for determinations on behalf of clients.

This appointment follows the opening of Quantuma’s new Manchester offering, bolstering the city’s booming financial and professional services sector. From its base at Number One, Spinningfields, the firm provides a full range of advisory services, including corporate finance, forensic accounting and restructuring.

Rob Parry said: “It’s widely-known in the market that Quantuma is breaking the mould of a traditional professional services firm. The team is of an exceptional calibre, and its boutique, structure means it is able to take on some of the most exciting mandates across the UK. I look forward to continuing to work with the outstanding NW lawyers and their clients at this exciting time for Quantuma.”

Carl Jackson, Managing Partner at Quantuma, said: “Rob is highly-regarded in his field for his expertise, and a sought-after advisor for complex commercial disputes, so it’s a real pleasure to welcome him to the fold.

“The North West is a commercial hotspot, and a target area of growth for us. There is an influx of investment in Manchester, and with its strong connectivity links and breadth of talent, the city’s financial and professional services sector will continue to evolve.

“We will continue to grow our headcount in the region to service the strong pipeline of activity.”

Founded in 2013, Quantuma has grown to become a £20m practice employing 150 staff. Headquartered in London, the company has a strong presence in the South of England, with locations in Southampton, Marlow, Watford, Brighton and Bristol.
