RSM has promoted Karen Tasker to partner in its pension team, increasing it to 13 partners.
Tasker was previously a pensions auditor for the consultancy, but moved into her new role on 1 April.
She is currently the firm's national lead for defined contribution (DC) schemes, and chairwoman of the Pensions Research Accountants Group DC working party.
Head of pensions Ian Bell said the promotion was "thoroughly deserved".
"Karen is a well-respected member of RSM's pensions team and is highly regarded in the pensions sector," he said. "Her promotion to partner is thoroughly deserved and I'm delighted that she will now play an even more important role in helping our clients meet their ever-increasing regulatory and compliance obligations."
Her promotion comes alongside a number of other senior appointments in the team. Elisabeth Storey and Helen Hord have both been promoted to associate director, and Nav Sarai, Peter Bryant and Richard Young are now managers.
Tasker joined RSM as a senior manager in 2006, having previously been a senior audit manager at Crowe Clark Whitehill from 2002. Prior to this, she was a senior audit manager for Ernst & Young from 1998.
