‘2015 has been a busy year and we have an excellent pipeline for 2016. We are delighted to have attracted four high calibre individuals to help drive this growth during the next 12 months.’
The firm’s growth has come largely from its existing farming and private business client base, assisted by its reputation for handling pension auto-enrolment work. Additionally there has been a growing trend of self-employment, which began during the recession, and has led to a surge in demand for personal tax and accountancy advice.
The quartet of new recruits join the firm’s Nottingham city centre offices on Canal Street, and bring substantial experience from both private practice and within industry.
Chartered accountant Garry Underwood joins from Pells Chartered Accountants and brings over nine years’ experience in advising small and medium sized businesses.
Emma Hunt specialises in smaller and micro businesses and, in addition to over a decade of accounts and bookkeeping experience, has run her own business.
Hayley Purdy joins the firm’s C&B Comply team, working with team head Catherine Sharp to provide advice to both businesses and individuals. Her previous experience includes national accountancy practice BDO LLP.
Completing the quartet of new recruits is trainee accountant Daniel Lawson. Daniel joins from Pells Chartered Accountants and also spent several years in the finance team at New College Nottingham.
‘We will mark our 70th anniversary in 2016 making us one of the oldest – if not the oldest – independent firms of chartered accountants in Nottingham. Our new people have settled in well and, with more recruits to come in the New Year, we are confident that we are going into 2016 in very good shape.’
