Richard Walker joins Parsons as Head of Audit, bringing over 10 years of experience in the field. He is responsible for maintaining high quality audit standards, nurturing client relationships and leading a specialist team in servicing the growing client base.
Jamie Kelly is appointed as Head of Taxation, managing the firm’s established tax compliance service which guides clients through their annual tax returns and self-assessments. He is also responsible for the firm’s tax advisory service, assisting clients in navigating the diverse taxation landscape from Corporation Tax through to Inheritance Tax, and beyond.
Marketing Manager, Lisa Butterworth, joins Parsons with almost 20 years of experience in the commercial, third and public sectors. She is the firm’s first in-house marketer and is responsible for establishing a marketing strategy to promote the expanded service portfolio and support the growth of the client base.
Commenting on the appointments, Managing Partner Ian Parsons said: “Increasingly, clients are demanding not only assured financial compliance from us but also our expertise in seeing beyond the numbers to advise them on the overall financial health of their businesses, and to guide their growth strategy. These new appointments give us the in-house skills to comprehensively address that demand and add value for our existing clients, whilst also growing our client base and actively promoting our brand across Yorkshire.”
