Wynne and Co, a Carmarthenshire-based accountancy firm, has announced the promotion of Catrin Burt to a director at the group.
Having been with the company for six years, Burt has now gained her ACA practising certificate from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), qualifying her to take the senior role in the firm.
Burt’s promotion means that the group will now operate with two directors, enabling it to continue along a steady growth trajectory it has pursued since the firm’s inception in 2012.
Burt said that she is “excited” by the opportunities the move provides both for her “personally and for the firm”.
She added: “Working at Wynne & Co is more than just a job that you forget about at the end of the day. I really care about doing a great job for my clients and want to make sure that they are well looked after.
“I’m also keen to help my colleagues progress in their careers, and my new role will help me to do that.”
An employer of eight, all-female, staff members, Wynne and Co acts across two offices in Carmarthen and Cross Hands.
Sarah Wynne, founder and managing director at the company, said: “I’m excited at the prospects that are opened up by Catrin’s promotion.
“I’m hugely proud of what she has achieved over the past couple of years, and I’m really pleased for her and for us that she has now become a director.”
She added: “I’m highly ambitious for Wynne & Co and having a second director opens up further opportunities for expansion.
“Training and development are one of our strengths and having Catrin in her new role enables us to train staff to a higher standard and give them opportunities to progress their careers within the firm.”
