London and Surrey-based chartered accountants and business advisors Shipleys has appointed Steve Foster as their new Managing Principal.

In his new role, Foster will lead the firm’s strategic direction and overall management. He takes over from Simon Robinson, who steps down after six years in the role to return full-time to client work.

Steve Foster trained and qualified with Baker Tilly and then spent six years as director of finance at a London-based media business. Returning to practice, he was appointed a partner of Pridie Brewster, which subsequently merged with PKF in January 2007. He joined Shipleys as a principal in January 2008 and his experience includes sectors such as property, automotive, information technology and media.

Steve Foster added, “I and my fellow Principals are very grateful to Simon for his hard work as Managing Principal for the last 6 years. I am greatly looking forward to further building on Shipleys’ success to date and guiding the firm in its future development.  It’s an exciting time for the firm as we support clients as they adapt to the post-pandemic landscape. Our focus will remain to help clients thrive and it’s a privilege to take on this leadership position.”
