New audit partners John Charlton and Ryan Ketteringham are both part of the Corporate Business team in London, based in Crowe’s new Ludgate Hill office. They step up to partnership from their previous director roles.

The appointments further strengthen Crowe’s presence in the corporate market, which has seen our Corporate Business team more than double in size since 2010, as well as highlighting the our commitment to nurturing talent and recognising individual growth and development.

John CharltonJohn has spent a decade at Crowe, joining the firm in 2011 shortly after qualifying, and advises a wide range of large, private and SME clients. In particular, he has worked on some of the firm’s largest and most complex public company audits, including AIM and Standard List entities, international groups and larger privately-owned businesses.
Ryan KetteringhamRyan joined Crowe as a trainee in 2007 and has a wealth of experience advising clients in our highly regarded Professional Practices team where he will continue to develop his focus, as well as contribute to the wider Corporate Business team.

Recovery Solutions

Steven Edwards also joins the partnership, further strengthening the firm’s presence in the corporate recovery market. A licenced insolvency practitioner, Steven has been a part of the firm’s Recovery Solutions team in the Kent office since joining Crowe in 2014. He has more than 20 years’ corporate recovery and turnaround experience working with a variety of owner managed business and non profit clients. Steven will continue to focus on finding solutions for his clients in what is anticipated to be a difficult year as businesses contend with financial issues resulting from the periods of lockdown and the unwinding of government support.

Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive of Crowe commented:

Nigel Bostock

“I am delighted to welcome John, Ryan and Steven to the partnership. It has been a year like no other, but it is important that we take a moment to reflect on successes in the face of adversity, and the new partners we are announcing today have epitomised the Crowe spirit that has endured during the pandemic. I look forward to the continued value they will bring for our clients in their new roles as partners."

Stephen Bullock, Head of London Corporate Business, commented:

Stephen Bullock“It is particularly pleasing to be able to bring though more of our next generation of partners from inside the firm. John and Ryan bring different specialisms and sector skills within the audit field, John leading in the listed company market and Ryan in professional practices. I am confident they will each make a valuable contribution to the Corporate Business team at a key moment in time for the rapidly changing larger corporate audit market in the UK."

Mark Newman, Head of Recovery Solutions, commented:

"Steven has shown his capabilities in advising organisations facing financial difficulty and his step up to partnership is well-deserved. The past year has, unfortunately, been a testing time for many businesses and it has never been more important for such businesses to have the support and guidance of recovery solutions specialists armed with the solutions and skillsets to steer them through turbulent times. Steven’s promotion is testament to the rigour and attention to detail that our team provides to clients in this regard."
