New Director Appointment heralds further growth at Carpenter Box Gatwick
South Coast and Gatwick-based chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers, Carpenter Box, has appointed Maurice Frost to the role of Departmental Director in the Business Services Group to help build on the already successful growth of the firm’s Gatwick office.
Throughout his 26 years as a partner at an accountancy firm in Crawley, Maurice has gained vast experience of undertaking audits and of advising owner-managed businesses. During his career Maurice has also worked for one of the UK’s top five accountancy firms and his technical ability has been put to good practical use during a stint as a Financial Controller for a company within the care industry.
Carpenter Box opened its Gatwick office in June 2015 and has been welcomed into the business community to the point that it is now accelerating its plans for growth, to meet the demand for its services. Maurice will be focusing on owner-managed businesses of all sizes helping to increase their profitability and improve their tax efficiency.
He commented: “I am delighted to be appointed Department Director in an award-winning firm with such an excellent reputation as Carpenter Box. I have lived in Crawley from my youngest days and have played a part in the growth and development of the area over many years. I am well established in the business community, so I believe that I am in a good position to help the firm with its ambitious growth strategy and I relish the opportunity to be part of that journey.”
Outside of work, Maurice and his wife are to be found supporting the burgeoning sporting exploits of their teenage son. Maurice plays drums and is also a Harlequins Rugby supporter.

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
