A perfect platform for the next generationAccountancy Updates
After a career in tax spanning 40 successful years, September marks the retirement of one of Rickard Luckin’s longest-serving Tax Directors, Peter Warren.
Having joined what was then Bird Luckin in 1989 from HMRC, Peter became a director in 1994. In addition to advising clients himself, as head of tax planning and consulting, Peter helped build the firm’s tax team to what it is today, increasing its consulting capability and expertise whilst developing a team that maintains the high standard of work and personal approach set by Peter that so many of our clients have become accustomed to.
Reflecting on his career, Peter says: “It is and always has been a people-focussed business and I have been extremely fortunate to work with so many wonderful clients, colleagues and other professionals over the years. I have enjoyed my career enormously and I am looking forward to the chance to now enjoy my leisure time. Much of it will, I hope, involve spending more time with my family whilst also adding many more seasons to the 52 I`ve already spent supporting Chelsea, improving my golf and, enjoying yet more country walks and travelling.”
Whilst Peter will be missed by colleagues and clients alike, he leaves Rickard Luckin at a time when its tax team has never been stronger. The firm has been further adding strength and depth to its tax capability over the last 18 months – including last year’s recruitment of Chelmsford-based Tax Associate, Neil Spicer, who brings over 25 years’ experience in tax.
We would like to thank Peter for his contribution to the business over 3 decades. He has been instrumental in building the firm’s tax capability over this time and more recently with the firm’s Head of Tax & Financial Planning, Jamie Nice, to ensure the high levels of service, expert advice and knowledge remain at the heart of the next generation of our tax team. We wish Peter a long, happy and healthy retirement.
