Midlands accountants celebrate raft of promotions
A leading Midlands accountancy firm is celebrating a raft of promotions across its team following a period of sustained growth.
Prime Accountants Group has promoted Leigh Dudley and Paul Guise to directors from their previous roles as associate directors.
Paul joined Prime, which has offices in Solihull, Birmingham and Coventry, in 2015 where he started as an account manager in the audit and accounts department. In 2017, Paul was promoted to senior manager, followed by another promotion to associate director in 2021.
Working alongside Paul in the audits and accounts division, Leigh qualified in 2003, joining Prime in August 2016 after working for more than 17 years in general practice.
Elsewhere across the business, Martin Farrell has been promoted to senior payroll manager in Prime’s payroll department, while Paislei Godley has been promoted to senior manager for tax advisory.
There have also been several promotions in the audit and accounts department, with Emma Abbotts promoted to senior manager; Liam Hackett promoted to manager and both Emma Pithouse and Natalija Carlsson promoted to assistant manager.
The promotions come at the same time as a major review of Prime’s support services, which has led to the creation of a new department consisting of IT, HR, marketing and internal accounts. Kerrie Given has moved across from payroll to lead this team as practice manager.
Kevin Johns, managing director of Prime Accountants Group, said: “This is a team of talented individuals who reflect Prime’s values in all they do. They have sustained passion for their roles, the cornerstone of any driven employee.
“We love to see people flourish in their careers and this talented crop have become standout members of our teams, making the most of the working culture we aim to engender here at Prime.
“We know they will both continue to utilise the skillset and the relationships they harbour with their clients in the best possible way.”
