We’re delighted to announce two senior promotions

We are delighted to announce that we’re celebrating two promotions within their senior team. Colin Fowler, and Martin Lanceley, both previously Senior Associates have been promoted to Client Services Directors.


Desirie Lea, Executive Director said “Colin and Martin really deserve their promotions, they have both given many years of dedicated service to the firm and our clients.

“Colin joined us back in 1988, and has invaluable knowledge of our clients and their individual requirements. His attention to detail is second to none and his expertise on all aspects of accounting and taxation is greatly valued. As a past Chairman of the Chester & North Wales branch of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW), he’s passionate about supporting younger members of the team and is instrumental in passing on accounting knowledge to our students.”

Desirie continued, “I am also delighted that Martin’s commitment and dedication has been recognised. Martin forms an essential role in managing our Franchise and Ophthalmic specialist teams, as well as offering advice and guidance to our clients on cloud-based accounting software.”

The promotions come just 12 months after we joined forces with Stoke-on-Trent and Manchester based DJH Mitten Clarke, becoming part of their group as a move to strengthen the specialist services offered to our clients.
