Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



The Nottingham office of national accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young has promoted Dave Allum to the role of partner, following more than 20 years of loyal service at the firm.

Dave joined UHY’s Nottingham office in 2002 as an audit senior, progressing through the ranks and a range of roles to become one of seven Nottingham partners.

Assisting the firm’s client base with audit and accounts, Dave has developed his specialism of supporting owner-managed businesses with their complex needs, including the nuances of charitable organisations.

He said:

“From strategic advice to succession planning and post-Brexit implications for international business, it is incredibly rewarding to work with members of the Nottingham team and other UHY offices to help our clients across the UK, and internationally, prosper.

“I also have a strong interest in supporting charities and enjoy the challenge of applying concepts from the commercial environment to help these organisations become more financially sustainable.

“As a father to two children with disabilities, I am incredibly grateful to the support that UHY continues to provide to enable me to prioritise their needs and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Despite being a national firm, we’ve managed to remain true to our values and culture to provide the best environment for the team - a significant reason for why I am proud to have worked at UHY for so long.

“In my new role as partner, I look forward to continue being a trusted adviser to my audit clients while also supporting the growth of other team members, through our fantastic personal development programme, who will ultimately become future custodians of the firm.”

Andrew Timms, managing partner at the Nottingham office of UHY Hacker Young, said:

“Dave continues to deliver exceptional audit and business advisory support to solve the complex and ever-changing problems faced by the owner-managed businesses and charitable organisations that we work with.

“As one of our longest-serving members of the Nottingham team, Dave’s promotion shows the development opportunities that UHY has become synonymous with, and we are delighted to make him our newest partner as part of our continued growth through our five-year plan, and beyond.”
