KRW team update: goodbye Laura & Jessica, hello Lauren, Matt, Chloe & Anish

January 10, 2022|In KRW Insight|By Keith Witchell

With our normal newsletters making way for COVID related updates over the last couple of years, it’s been a while since we’ve updated you on our awesome team.

Here’s a short summary of the new recruits:

First up we have Lauren Jones who joined us a Client Manager in February 2021.  Lauren is ACCA exam qualified and her prior experience includes working for other accountancy practices, as well as a spell working in London as an in-house accountant for a children’s book publisher.

Next up, Matthew Hayes joined us in April 2021 as another Client Manager.  Matt is part ACA qualified and is continuing to study towards this qualification.  Alongside preparing accounts and tax returns, Matt will also be assisting on some of our audits, having joined us from a mixed audit and accounts role at a larger firm.

Then, towards the end of 2021, we welcomed two new payroll clerks to the team, Chloe and Anish, who have taken over from Dom, allowing him to move across to our Accounts department as a trainee accountant.  Chloe and Anish bring lots of prior payroll preparation experience to their roles.

We also gave a fond farewell to Laura Franklin in November, after 6 years at the firm, during which time she worked her way up from Payroll manager to a fully ACCA qualified Client Manager.

Then soon afterwards we said goodbye to Jessica Moody in December, after 5.5 years at the firm, during which she worked as a bookkeeper to one of our largest clients, while also training to be an accountant.

Expect to see more additions to the team over the year ahead as the firm continues to grow.  As ever, while some faces may change along the way, our core values never will, so you can expect the same great service to continue 😊
