PKF Littlejohn appoints next Managing Partner

PKF Littlejohn has elected Dominic Roberts as its next Managing Partner.

Dominic will replace Carmine Papa, who is due to complete his sixth year of office, on 1 June. Carmine will remain as a client-facing Partner at the firm and continue to head up its Financial Services team.

Dominic has a long history with the firm, having joined the London office of CLB, which subsequently merged with Littlejohn Frazer, in 2005. 

After training as tax specialist, Dominic made his name as a transaction services partner in PKF Littlejohn’s Capital Markets team and his portfolio has included clients listed on the LSE, AIM, NASDAQ, NEX, TSX and ASX stock exchanges.  During Dominic’s time heading the Capital Markets team, PKF Littlejohn has expanded to become a top 10 auditor of listed companies, according to the respected ARL Adviser Rankings guide.

Dominic has served on PKF Littlejohn’s three-person Leadership Team since 2015 and has been Deputy Managing Partner since 2017.  He is also a member of the board of PKF International.

Carmine Papa said: “Dominic’s appointment as Managing Partner represents a very positive and natural next step for our business.  I have no doubt that, under Dominic’s leadership, the firm will continue to develop and grow while building on the unique ethos that our clients, partners and staff value so much.”

Dominic Roberts added: “Our success in recent years has seen a continued rise in reputation of PKF Littlejohn and its people in our main sectors.  Client interviews confirm that we are known for our quality, for our ability to help clients solve complex problems, and for being a pleasure to work with.   I am proud of this and can genuinely say that I would not want to work anywhere else.  

“My aim is to ensure that PKF Littlejohn continues to forge its own distinctive and successful path in the market, leveraging our strengths and taking advantage of the myriad opportunities available to us.  I expect us to continue to expand profitably and sustainably, for the benefit of our clients and everyone within our business.  Naturally, this will involve a continued focus on building a fair, supportive and enjoyable environment that attracts and retains the best people, to our firm.”
