Alan Taylor and Susie Campion have both been promoted to the position of partner at Lancaster-based firm Scott and Wilkinson, after 25 years of service.
Taylor, educated at Ripley St Thomas in Lancaster, joined the firm in 1994, just a week before his 18th birthday and shortly after sitting his last A’ Level. Starting out as a trainee accountant, he has worked his way to the position of practice manager with responsibility for IT and MTD as well as the management of a portfolio of clients.
Partner Paul Wilkinson said: “Alan’s long service and great energy has been central to the growth and success of the firm. His organisational skills set him apart from the beginning, but it his enthusiasm for the firm and its place in the local community that makes his contribution so special. We are delighted that he has now become a partner.”
Campion started her career in accountancy after leaving Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School and qualified in 2002. During her many years with Scott and Wilkinson, she has been central to developing the firm’s approach to staff training.
Partner Tim Preece added: “Susie’s deep understanding and extensive knowledge of the industry makes Susie a great asset to the firm and a great mentor for less experienced members of her team. She is a patient and willing teacher, as well as being a first-rate practitioner. Susie’s specialisms include managing our large group audits where she enjoys an excellent relationship with her clients. We are very proud to have her on board.”
