We’ve bolstered our business advisory team with the appointment of director Ashley Luxon.

Based in Taunton, he joins from another Somerset firm of accountants and brings over nine years’ experience of advising owner-managed and family businesses.

Ashley said: “I was attracted to PKF Francis Clark by the opportunity to work for a bigger firm and collaborate with a wide range of in-house specialists on projects for clients, whether it’s inheritance tax when thinking about succession planning, share for share exchanges or other technical tax matters.

“I had only heard positive things about the culture here. It’s been great to meet colleagues from different offices and get to know each other over some teambuilding games at our departmental away day. There’s a good team spirit and everyone gets on really well, which is very important to me because work is a big part of your life.

“The thing I enjoy most about my role is becoming embedded in family businesses, helping them navigate the challenges they inevitably come across and seeing them grow and succeed. I’m looking forward to building relationships with our clients and continuing to progress in my career with PKF Francis Clark.”

PKF Francis Clark’s business advisory team provides technical knowledge, strategic support and commercial insight, as well as accounts preparation and processing, to clients across a wide range of sectors.

Partner Paul Bray, who heads up the firm’s business advisory team across Bristol and Taunton, said: “It’s great to welcome Ashley to the firm. As soon as I met him, I could see he would be an excellent addition to our team, helping to extend our offering across the patch.

“He lives in the centre of Taunton, knows the local market and has experience of running a team. He has already fitted in well with the team and met some of his new clients, as well as joining me in networking locally.”

When not at work, Ashley enjoys spending time with his young daughter and watching or playing a variety of sports.

Since being certified as a Great Place to Work, this year PKF Francis Clark has been ranked among the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing, Best Workplaces for Women and Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services. The firm is also ranked among England’s Top 100 Apprenticeship employers, claiming 28th place on this year’s list produced by the Department of Education and High Fliers Research.
