PKF Smith Cooper has announced a string of promotions across a number of divisions, effective from the beginning of this month.
The promotions across the firm’s Derby, Nottingham, and Birmingham offices follow a period of sustained, strategic growth for the Midlands firm, not only signalling its aim to continue expanding but also the “focused investment” in its team members.
Within the Corporate Finance division, Tom Joy has been promoted to corporate finance manager, which acknowledges the “integral nature” of his role in a number of deals for the team throughout 2021.
The Audit and Tax teams have also been strengthened by promotions, with Beckie Furniss and Charlotte Martinazzoli being promoted to assistant managers in Derby, while Jessica Richardson has become assistant manager in the Nottingham office.
The firm also revealed Stacey Sykes, who joined the firm in 2018 as an assistant manager, has now been promoted to senior tax manager, recognising her role in developing and growing the tax compliance service in Derby.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Smith has been promoted to senior executive within the marketing team, a move that celebrates her fundamental role in shaping the firm’s marketing strategy.
James Bagley, managing partner, said: “Nurturing and growing talent is something we pride ourselves on here at PKF Smith Cooper, which is why I am particularly proud to announce these latest promotions.
“These team members have been with us since very early in their careers – with the majority initially joining us as an apprentice or graduate – and have worked their way up through the ranks. All six promotions are really well deserved, and I wish Tom, Stacey, Jessica, Beckie, Charlotte, and Charlotte all continued success in the future.”
