Audit specialist sails in


South west accountant, Bishop Fleming, has appointed international audit specialist at Ernst & Young, Fleur Oswald, to the new post of director of audit.

A member of Britain’s Olympic sailing development squad for two years, Oswald declined her opportunity to continue training for the Beijing Olympics to focus on her career.

Having spent the past five years at Ernst & Young, she has joined Bishop Fleming to provide technical audit services across all the firm’s offices in Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, and Truro.

Jerry O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Bishop Fleming, said: “We are thrilled that Fleur chose to approach Bishop Fleming to build her career ambitions.

“Her arrival enables us to provide the new post of director of audit, alongside our specialist directors of tax and VAT. This now enhances Bishop Fleming’s capabilities as providing the highest technical standards to businesses across the south west.”
