Rising star joins Bishop Fleming


Bishop Fleming has recruited a rising local star to its Truro office.

The firm, which delivers accounting, tax, corporate restructuring and advisory services, has appointed Ben Rance as an accounts and audit executive.

Although he will be advising on audit and accounting issues, Rance will also have specific responsibility for working with the firm’s charity and academy clients, playing to his strengths as a specialist in the not-for-profit sector.

Rance is a chartered certified accountant with over five years’ experience in professional services, and joins Bishop Fleming from RRL, where he managed a portfolio of charity and academy clients.

Last year, Rance appeared in the inaugural Cornwall 30 under 30 list, celebrating the top 30 young business people working in Cornwall under the age of 30. He was referred to as “one to watch in the accountancy world” and “a business leader of tomorrow”.

He commented: “Bishop Fleming is a highly respected and fast-growing firm with huge ambition and I am delighted to be joining them. I’ve been hugely impressed at the breadth of skills and experience within the firm, which enables us to deliver a comprehensive and joined-up service to a wide range of clients.”

Bishop Fleming’s Truro partner, Alison Oliver, welcomed Rance to the team and said: “With the Cornish economy continuing to grow, we are recruiting to reflect an increasing demand for our services. At the same time we continue to develop our existing team with tailored training programmes.”
