Growth and expansion lead to Partner call for Kevin

We are delighted to announce that we have promoted a valued member of staff

We are delighted to announce that we have promoted a valued member of staff to partner in recognition of his work supporting the firm’s growth plans.

Kevin Shotton has been an integral member of the team and we have promoted him to partner as a result of his involvement in the growth and expansion of the firm’s audit and accounts department as well as wider service offerings to help benefit the firm’s clients.

Kevin, from Washington, re-joined us in 2012 as a director, after qualifying as a chartered accountant with us in 2005.

After qualification, Kevin moved to a national firm in Newcastle, where he gained further knowledge and experience of the corporate market.  He re-joined us as he saw an opportunity to be part of an exciting practice that had visions for future development. His experience has helped bring fresh ideas and perspective to our practice.

Kevin works with a variety of owner-managed businesses, however he has particular knowledge of manufacturing businesses and supporting entities adapting to the new UK accounting rules.

His promotion underpins our commitment to staff development.

Tony Luckett, one of our partners, said: “Kevin has been instrumental in the continued expansion of the firm.  He re-joined us having gained more knowledge and experience and this has been fundamental to his ability to help support our clients as the economy continues to recover.

We are delighted to see Kevin rewarded in this way and look forward with him, at the forefront of the firm’s future.”

Kevin added: “I’m excited about gaining this promotion and very pleased to be able to be so involved with further ideas and initiatives that will support the firm’s continued growth.  I’m fortunate to work with great clients and I look forward to the future.”
