Albert Goodman, a regional chartered accountancy firm, has announced that Sarah Edwards has been made partner at the firm’s Weston-super-Mare office.
Edwards joined Albert Goodman as a trainee in 2008 before leaving the firm to join a builder’s merchant and international manufacturing company as a group accountant.
She re-joined the firm in 2021 to offer specialist advice to medical clients where she guides GP practices, doctors, consultants, and locums within medical accounts. In addition, she also advises on NHS pensions schemes, alongside providing expert tax advice.
Edwards’ promotion takes the partnership board female representation to a 56%/44% female/male split, a first time high for the firm.
She will continue to work out of Albert Goodman’s Weston-super-Mare office closely with Jim Duggan, also a current medical partner.
Edwards said: “I feel really honoured to earn a place on the partnership board and even more thrilled that this takes the number of female partners to a record high. Albert Goodman has been a big part of my career and I’m excited I can now play a part in the future of this growing accountancy firm.”
Iain McVicar, managing partner at Albert Goodman, said: “Once a trainee and now a female partner, I couldn’t be more thrilled that Sarah is joining the leadership team.
“Since taking on the role as the new managing partner at Albert Goodman, it feels great to work alongside female partners like Sarah who bring so much specialised accountancy expertise to the table. I’m excited to see her develop and grow personally in this challenging role.”
