Experienced business leader Mark Roberts has been appointed to head up BHP Consulting’s expert team of corporate advisors who specialise in delivering business growth across all industries.

BHP Consulting employs a team of six experienced consultants who all have a wealth of experience leading and growing a huge range of businesses. The firm is a division of BHP Chartered Accountants which has offices in Leeds, Cleckheaton, Sheffield, Chesterfield and York.

Mark joined BHP Consulting in 2015. He has considerable experience in successfully working with SME’s as a strategic advisor, helping them to understand their market opportunities, fulfil their growth aspirations and develop their management teams. Prior to this, he was Managing Director at automotive parts and equipment distributor Andrew Page Ltd, where he successfully ran the business and oversaw a considerable period of growth.

Mark’s new role follows the internal announcement that BHP Consulting’s David Mitchell is leaving the firm at the end of the year to move into industry and become Chief Executive of a newly formed investment management vehicle, managing several trading business across the UK.

Mark says: “David’s vision of building a team of experienced business leaders who provide real value to their clients in overcoming the commercial barriers to growth has given BHP Consulting a real point of differentiation in the Advisory market and we all wish him every success as moves from practice into industry. The BHP Consulting team is talented and knowledgeable. We all have broad experience when it comes to building successful businesses and have done so across a wide variety of industries. We all share a passion in wanting to see our clients become more successful and a vision in how we go about supporting them on their journey. To lead this team is both a privilege and a very exciting opportunity, and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

John Warner, BHP’s Managing Partner adds: “Mark has an exceptional track record of growing successful companies. He always has an immediate impact when he sees a client for the first time and is particularly effective when it comes to multi-site operations and diversifying into new markets. He is very well-respected amongst our team and our clients, and there’s no doubt that BHP Consulting will thrive with him at the helm.

“Everyone at BHP would like to wish David the very best for the future.”

During his time at BHP David established the Leeds office, and developed many advisory strategies for BHP’s general practice, including staff training programs and started the firm’s Consulting division. David said: “Personally this is a very exciting time, and after 17 years as a Partner in practice, industry will be a great challenge. I look forward to being a strong friend of the firm well into the future.”
