Morgan McKinley expands team with new hires

Morgan McKinley expands team with new hiresRecruitment firm, Morgan McKinley, has announced it is continuing its growth with two senior appointments to their UK operations.

Ian Barker joins as UK director of professional services, alongside Kathryn Swan starting as the UK lead for accountancy practices.

With over 17 years’ experience in the industry, Ian demonstrates a strong track record of appointing junior to director/partner level positions and building a national network grown throughout his tenure. Prior to starting at Morgan McKinley, Ian worked for Hays PLC where he was the director for the professional services (Hays Legal, Hays Taxation & Treasury, Hays Public Practice) and Hays insurance specialist teams in London.

Kathryn Swan has been appointed the UK Lead for accountancy practices (audit, advisory, tax), and will have operational and strategic responsibility for leading the recruitment teams into accountancy practices across the UK. She started her career with Hays and worked her way up through the ranks over 19 years, becoming part of the leadership team of Hays Leading Women networking group along the way. As a director at Hays, Kathryn was pivotal over the years to the growth of the public practice team in both London and nationwide. Kathryn also worked closely with Leadership Through Sport, a social mobility charity dedicated to the development of young people working in finance.

David Leithead, Chief Operations Officer UK, Morgan McKinley, said: “Morgan McKinley is growing fast. We’re really excited to have Ian and Kathryn join our team. I have no doubt that their knowledge and deep expertise to our already strong operations team will have a positive impact on our continued service offering. Both Ian and Kathryn will no doubt play a huge role in our expansion for the next phase of our growth presented by improving markets.”
