Evans will split her new role between the firm’s Grosvenor Road office in Wrexham, and the company’s Chester branch in Nicholas Street, managing staff and client accounts.
She started her career in 1996 as a trainee, she completed her Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) foundation qualification at Coleg Cambria in Wrexham before formally qualifying in 2001 after attaining her Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification.
She said: “I feel honoured to be involved at such an important time for the business. Coxeys is one of the biggest firms in the area and I’m privileged to help it grow further.
“My new role will be client-facing as much as possible and securing new clients. We have to be very flexible and a sole trader is just as important to us as our bigger clients.”
Anthony Lewis, managing director, Coxeys, added: “Joanne has worked for us for almost eight years and already has a very strong relationship with our clients, helping them to overcome any barriers or problems they face.
“She’s superb with accounting and audit work and is a real asset to the team and so I’m delighted she will be representing Coxeys in a director role and driving forward our development.”
