Baker Tilly has named John Porteous as head of wealth management following the firm’s acquisition of RSM Tenon.
Porteous was previously head of wealth management at RSM Tenon, which went into administration in August.
Baker Tilly bought the firm from the administrators the same morning after pulling out of a deal to acquire RSM Tenon in the lead up to the administration.
A Baker Tilly spokesman confirms Porteous will continue to head up wealth management following the deal.
He says: “Prior to the acquisition of RSM Tenon, Baker Tilly did not have a financial management arm.
“John will lead wealth management within the newly merged firm.”
