KRW team update:  introducing Paul Brown & Candice Jackson-hobbs


March 6, 2022|In KRW Insight|By Keith Witchell

As a result of some team changes, we are pleased to report that Paul Brown and Candice Jackson-Hobbs both joined the team earlier this month.

As some of you may remember from a previous bulletin, Laura Franklin left us before Christmas, and we are pleased to introduce Paul Brown as her replacement Client Manager.

Paul lives locally and joins us from a similar sized firm, where he held the role of Manager.  Paul is ACCA qualified, and brings with him plenty of experience and enthusiasm.  We can already tell that he is going to fit into the team perfectly, as he shares our values, and wants to help and support clients rather than just prepare their accounts.

Outside of work Paul is an avid cricketer and an all round sports fan, supporting Spurs, Northampton Saints and any other team out there sponsored by Cinch!  Paul is also a father to two young children which keeps him very busy!

In other team news, we’re sad to report that Melissa Grummett is leaving us, after 5 years with the firm.  Melissa had two main roles at KRW:  Company Secretarial; and new client onboarding.  With Diane already looking after Confirmation Statements, we’re going to ask our lovely Client Managers to assist their clients with other Company Secretarial duties, such as Director changes and share transfers, which further reinforces their support role to their portfolio of clients.

Turning to new client onboarding, we’re pleased to announce that Candice Jackson-Hobbs has joined us to head up this function, and also to look after new company formations.  Candice recently relocated to the area and has prior of experience of working for an accountancy practice.  She’s young and tech-savvy which is perfect for this role, as we are always looking to streamline the process for taking on new clients and to make changing accountants as seamless as possible.

Outside of the office, Candice is an avid gamer, with League of Legends being a personal favourite of hers.

We’re also pleased to report that two of our Client Managers, Mollie Marshall and Ann Hannigan, have been promoted to Senior Client Managers.  They will each still be looking after a portfolio of clients as before but are also now helping with managing the team, including our trainees, to ensure the quality of our work remains high as we continue to grow the practice.
