We were delighted to recently announce the formation of our first ever all-female board of directors, just in time for International Women’s Day on March 8.
We’ve delivered the board shake-up as we prepare for further expansion throughout 2018.
The move comes as part of our plans to increase turnover through a strategy that’ll focus on long-term business support and advisory services for our existing and new clients.
The re-structured board comprises of our audit director, Karen Borowski, tax director, Lesley Sutton and business services director, Jennifer Davies.
Commenting on the move, Karen said:
“All-female boards are extremely rare in a male-dominated sector like ours, so we are already way ahead of the national target for PLCs. Despite the laughs we’ve had around ‘doing it for the girls’, there are very sound business reasons behind our decision.
We feel the traditional role of an accountant is changing. Clients are looking for added value business services that they cannot source internally, such as access to an experienced financial controller, strategic support at Board level and tax advice.
This means our approach has to change in order to keep pace and grow the business, and we believe our focus on long-term partnerships and relationship building through our new board will enable us to do just that.”
