Liverpool-based regeneration and economics adviser Amion has appointed Carmel Booth as a director from KPMG.
Amion said Booth is one of only a few chartered accountants who specialise in the regeneration sector of consulting. Booth has worked with the Homes & Communities Agency, regional development agencies and local authorities.
Ex-KPMG directors Graham Russell and Tim Johnston founded Amion in 2000. Johnston said: "Rarely does one find an individual with a 'Big Four' [accountancy firms] background who has the right blend of qualifications and specialist expertise that Amion requires, let alone one who will so comfortably fit into a leadership role within the team."
Amion relocated earlier this year from Silkhouse Court to Horton House at Exchange Flags.
