Going Digital and Developing

We welcome the appointment of Bridget Charlton as Marketing Manager and she will be joined in the newly created position of Human Resources and Training Manager, by Caroline Bowerbank.

Founded nearly 35 years ago, with our three offices in Darlington, Durham and York, we are recognised as one of the largest firms of chartered accountants, business advisers and tax experts in the North, employing around 90 staff including ten partners.

Bridget, originally from York, is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and her career has seen her occupy senior positions in retail, fashion and latterly the automotive industry.

Caroline, of Darlington, has a master’s degree in Human Resource Management and is an Associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

Bridget, who is married to Allan and has a son Josh 17, said: “With the rapid development of new technologies changing the face of modern accounting, this is a fascinating time to be involved with such a strong business.  I am looking forward to developing our digital platform to drive the business forward and strengthen the brand.

“I love the company’s ethos and culture, the strength of its reputation and loyal client base. I will also be working closely with Caroline to attract and retain the very best talent and hone internal communications to ensure our 90 staff across the three offices share our common purpose to deliver exceptional client service.”

Caroline, who is married to Andy and has two sons Ethan, six, and Isaac, three, added: “My role is to review and enhance the strong processes and policies that already exist in the company and ensure consistency across the three offices”.

“It is an exciting time to join the firm and I am looking forward to developing the role as the firm responds to a host of changing factors that affect us and our clients. The role is so varied and HR is constantly evolving in light of changing legislation.
