  • 31st January 2023

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Jim Livermore as Chief Operations Officer.

Jim has joined Forrester Boyd following a successful career within the banking sector, the majority of which was spent within corporate banking. He is a familiar face within the business community and has extensive experience in supporting businesses with suitable financial solutions, having financed working capital facilities, acquisitions, management buy-outs, international trade and traditional commercial property transactions.

Jim’s appointment sees a new strategic role created within Forrester Boyd. He will be responsible for the strategic planning and development of the business whilst overseeing operations. He will be supporting the partnership with their strategic decisions to help them grow and further develop the firm. He will also help to implement short and long-term business plans to meet the firm’s strategic goals.

‘It is an honour to join Forrester Boyd, a prestigious firm of Chartered Accountants. Forrester Boyd share my ethos and principles in the way they support clients with good quality service and trusted advice. I’m keen to support the partners in developing and implementing their strategic plan for the firm to ensure Forrester Boyd remain the leading firm in the area’ said Jim.

Kevin Hopper, Managing Partner at Forrester Boyd said, “We have worked very closely with Jim for many years. He is a fantastic asset to have on the strategic team at Forrester Boyd. Over the last two years, we have been building the firm and putting in place the structure and resources for future growth. In 2020, we doubled our partnership. We also acquired Graybrowne, an accountancy firm in Hull, providing us with an operational base in the City. The appointment of Jim as Chief Operations Officer will help the partners immensely in developing short and long-term strategic plans and bringing them to fruition, as we continue to evolve our services to meet the changing needs of our clients.”

Forrester Boyd was established in 1935 with it roots dating back even earlier. Some of its clients have been with the firm right from the start. Key to Forrester Boyd’s success has been its close client relationships. By working in partnership with its clients and understanding exactly what they need to help them succeed, by listening to their problems and offering them the advice and solutions they need, the firm has evolved from being traditional accountants to trusted business advisers.
