It’s been a busy time of growth and building for our future with three staff promotions, two new joiners and four trainees choosing to start their careers with us in the last few months.

On the promotion front, Andy Fuller and Sarah Miller become client managers. Andy joined us as an accounts senior in 2015 and will continue to be our resident cloud accounting expert, while Sarah joined us as a trainee in 2010 and will work predominantly with our audit clients.

Our other promotion goes to home-grown Clara Matthews who becomes a team leader having joined us as a trainee in 2010.

We’re also delighted to have welcomed two new team members in newly-created roles supporting our tax and outsourcing departments. Cristina Niculescu joined us as personal chartered tax adviser following some time out to raise her family, while Lydia Payne joined us last month as an accounts assistant.

We’ve also taken on four new trainees since last summer. Rhys Sheppard joined straight from graduating in accounting and finance from Reading University and is studying for his ACA. Gurit Singh Dulai started with us in January with an economics and maths degree from Surrey University and is also studying for the ACA qualification. We’ve also welcomed Greenwich University economics graduate Asma Waseem who is studying for the ACCA qualification. Scott Eveleigh made a career switch from retail management to join us and to study the AAT qualification.

McBrides’ managing partner Nick Paterno said: “It’s a period of tremendous growth for us at McBrides and it’s great to be able to add to the business where support is needed, and to recognise the hard work and excellent contribution that our people make to the business. It’s also important to build for the future and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to take on four new trainees since last summer.

“My congratulations to Andy, Sarah and Clara on their promotions, a warm welcome to our new joiners, and good luck to everyone with their new responsibilities and careers.”
