Xeinadin Group, one of the leading professional services groups in the UK and Ireland, has announced it is taking flagship office space at 100 Barbirolli Square, Manchester.

The move, scheduled to take place by June 1st, will see KJG Xeinadin Group move into 8,000 square feet of space on the 8th floor of the prime city centre real estate, from its current address on City Road East. The office will also have capacity to house central Xeinadin teams including operations, marketing, central finance and IT functions as well as some of the Xeinadin Corporate Finance team, with space allowing for future growth. The new office can accommodate 125 people on a hybrid basis.

KJG Xeinadin Group, which currently has around 70 team members and is actively recruiting, has particular expertise in specialisms including tax advisory and corporate recovery. The office move comes as it celebrates a key hire and a number of promotions across its practice areas.

The firm has appointed Michael Butt as a Director in its audit and accounting practice. With nearly 20 years of experience in the sector at Big Four firms, Michael joins from EY where he was based in London. He returns to his native Manchester to KJG, which has the largest audit team in the Xeinadin Group. 

As part of his role, Michael will also take on the role as Staff Partner and oversee team welfare, recruitment and retention, and operations. 

The key hire follows a number of recent promotions at KJG including:

  • Alessandro Sidoli, promoted to Director, Corporate Recovery
  • Tom Radcliffe, promoted to Tax Manager
  • Jonathan Garrett and Zubair Ali, both promoted to Audit and Accounts Assistant Managers
  • Helen Prescott, promoted to Audit and Accounts Senior

We’re rewarding a number of our incredible people with promotions as well as bringing in experienced talent from outside like Michael, and the office move gives us a great platform to keep growing as a key hub of Xeinadin.”

Michael Butt, Director, Audit and Accounting, KJG Xeinadin Group, commented: “Now is a very exciting time to join KJG. As part of the Xeinadin Group, there is access to a wide range of expertise, continuous innovation and professionalism of a big firm whilst retaining the entrepreneurship and close relationships which are hugely valuable to our clients. I am pleased to be back on Mancunian soil and excited to be working with such a great team.”
