Vincent Marke 16-9

Vincent joins Crowe’s highly accredited Social Purpose and Non Profits sector team from a top 10 accounting firm, where he was Audit Director with a focus on social housing.

Vincent brings with him more than 20 years of experience, advising a wide range of not-for-profit, public sector and corporate clients including large housing associations. He has also been in finance leadership roles in three large housing associations and offers an in-depth knowledge of financial management, governance and reporting in the sector.

His portfolio includes internal and external audit clients, including a number with listed debt. As well as a focus on audit work, his consultancy experience includes advising on mergers, conversion to charitable status and provision of risk management and governance training to boards and management teams.

Earlier this month, Crowe was named the top charity auditor for the 14th successive year in Civil Society’s Charity Finance Audit Survey for 2022. Vincent’s appointment further demonstrates Crowe’s long-standing commitment to the sector and continued investment in the Social Purpose and Non Profits team.

Naziar Hashemi, Head of Social Purpose and Non Profits at Crowe commented:

I am delighted to welcome Vincent to our Social Purpose and Non Profits team. His wealth of experience will complement our growing team perfectly, especially with more and more social housing providers turning to Crowe for advice in recent years. Each and every one of the team is committed to bringing insight and deep specialist knowledge to help deliver a quality added value and maximise the impact for the organisations we act for. Vincent’s appointment is another illustration of our continued investment in talent to make sure Crowe remains an advisor our clients can trust in these economically challenging times.

Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive at Crowe, said:

It is a pleasure to welcome Vincent to Crowe and I am confident that his depth of sector-specific experience and knowledge will further bolster our outstanding Social Purpose and Non Profits team. Crowe’s ongoing commitment to social purpose and non profit organisations is central to both our ethos and strategy. Vincent arrives shortly after the team were named top charity auditor for the 14th year consecutively, a testament to their expertise and commitment to clients. I look forward to seeing the team continue to grow as we move into the new year.

Vincent Marke commented:

I am excited to be joining a fast growing and successful firm with a reputation for providing quality to clients, and support to its people. I have known about Crowe for many years having previously worked with a number of the partners, and have seen the way that the firm delivers on its values, ‘we care, we share, we invest, we grow’. I look forward to being part of this fantastic culture going forward.
