DTE Business Advisers has promoted Richard Askey to the role of senior audit manager in its Bury head office.
The firm said that Askey trained at DTE and is an FCA qualified accountant who has “developed strong relationships with clients and has a hands-on approach”.
Askey also specialises in dealing with professional practices and looks after all the firm’s solicitor clients. Described as “technically excellent in FRS102/ISAs and possessing good all round knowledge of different taxes”, Askey also deals with the audit and accounting queries raised by members of DTE Connect, a support network for accountants and tax practitioners across the country.
As a senior audit manager at DTE, he will be largely responsible for advising clients directly on accounting/audit and tax matters, mentoring and training staff as well as nurturing DTE’s relationships with clients and prospects.
Fiona O’Loughlin, director and head of Audit at DTE Bury, said: “At DTE, apart from unmatched support for our clients, what we pride ourselves the most on is our policy of nurturing talents, and that’s how we have maintained excellent staff retention rates over the years. It has been a great pleasure witnessing Richard’s growth with the firm and I wish him all the best in his future years with DTE.”
Askey added: “I have always been made to feel a valued member of the team and believe DTE have a proven policy of rewarding hard-work and commitment. We have a strong team that works well together. It is a forward-thinking practice that has embraced new developments in technology and changes in financial reporting.
“What I like most about working at DTE is the variety of different work and challenges that we get every day because we support a wide range of clients in various sectors. That brings fresh challenges every day and means no two working days are the same.”
