Senior appointments mark continued growth in the North West


Our North West office has expanded its senior team to help satisfy demand from the local business community.

Jenny Pape and Susanna Cassey have been appointed as part of ongoing plans for growth. Ryan Wear has also been promoted to the position of Director within the Audit team.

Jenny, who joins the specialist Tax team as Senior Manager, has experience advising SME and owner-managed businesses, as well as charitable organisations and international groups, on all aspects of corporation tax. She joins after ten years at KPMG’s Preston office.

Susanna joins the firm after six years with Moore & Smalley LLP where she was Corporate Services Director. Her appointment further enhances the management team and she will be focused on further expanding the business, as well as strengthening its offering to SMEs and owner-managed businesses in the Lancaster and Cumbria area.

Tony Whiteway, Senior Director who heads up the firm’s Lancaster office, said, “It is fantastic to welcome two candidates of such high calibre to the team, as well as see Ryan achieve his ambition of progressing to Director level.

Our Lancaster team goes from strength to strength. The expertise that Susanna brings invaluably broadens the wide range of skills we have in the senior team, and with Ryan’s in-depth technical expertise and commercial knowledge, we can continue to provide the support our clients and their businesses need from us.

We now have the strongest tax team in our history and having Jenny on board will only add to that. She has an impressive track record in advisory work and tax planning and is a valuable addition to the team.

These are exciting developments; there are other senior appointments in the pipeline across the firm and we will also be welcoming Accountancy and Tax graduates to our team in September. Demand from our clients for additional services has never been higher and we are also seeing increasing numbers of businesses working with us for the first time”.
