David, said: “I’m really excited to be joining a growing accountancy group at a time when businesses in the North East are in buoyant mood.

“Working within businesses and accountancy practices has given me a breadth of experience that enables me to empathise with businesses and the complexity of their situations, and an increased ability to understand their needs.

“A number of these locations haven’t had access to corporate finance before, so one of my key focuses will be working with our clients and introducing local businesses to different ways they can grow their business.

“We are currently seeing a trend of business owners looking to plan for their succession, so a lot of work is going into developing exit strategies to ensure business continues to grow.”

John Baldwin added: “Investment in this newly-created role underlines our commitment to the North East and our belief in the strong business community and local economy.

“David arrives with a good track record of helping businesses grow and his valuable financial experience, combined with his detailed knowledge of the region, can provide an unrivalled professional and personal service to our clients.”
