Crowe has bolstered its Corporate Business group in London with the appointment of Peter Gilligan as partner, with effect from 1 November 2020.

Peter Gilligan is part of the Corporate Business team based in Crowe’s new London office at 55 Ludgate Hill and steps up to partnership from his previous director role, having joined the firm in 2011 shortly after qualifying.

The appointment further strengthens our presence in the corporate market which has seen our Corporate Business group more than double in size since 2010.

Peter will continue to develop his focus on clients in Crowe’s well established property and construction sector in which he has extensive experience, as well as contributing to the wider Corporate Business team. 

An audit specialist, Peter has worked on some of the firm’s largest and most complex audits, both public and private, including AIM and Standard List entities, international groups and privately-owned businesses.

Nigel BostockNigel Bostock, Chief Executive of Crowe, comments: 

“Peter’s combination of skills made him an ideal candidate to become partner and I am delighted to welcome him to the partnership.

At Crowe we believe in investing in our own people, giving them the opportunities to progress through their career. I am proud of the fantastic talent pool we have here at the firm and remain committed to developing – and recognising – the current and future stars who are the future of our business.

Peter lives our values, acting as a voice of guidance and wisdom for younger team members through his mentorship and training roles. I hope his journey within Crowe serves as an aspirational example for all our trainees.”

Stephen BullockStephen Bullock, Head of London Corporate Business, comments

It is particularly pleasing when we are able to bring though talent from inside the firm. Having worked closely with Peter throughout his time with Crowe I have seen him develop into a highly capable senior professional. Peter will make a valuable contribution to the Corporate Business team as we navigate the rapidly changing larger corporate audit market in the UK and position ourselves to take advantage of the opportunities to provide audit and non-audit services to larger and listed clients.

Since I joined Crowe, the firm has been fantastic in allowing me to develop and advance within its Corporate Business team. It was a real honour to be asked to join the partnership team to continue this progress. I am really looking forward to continuing to work alongside our very talented teams in contributing to the ongoing growth of our Corporate Business group and to further developing my particular focus on the property and construction sector.
