New Appointments Strengthen Leadership Team at MHA Carpenter Box
Rapidly growing Worthing and Gatwick-based chartered accountants, tax and business advisers, MHA Carpenter Box, has strengthened its leadership team with the appointment of two new Partners.
Peter Reading, who joined the firm in 2001 as a 21-year-old trainee, is now Partner in the firm’s Assurance and Advisory Group. His particular focus is on regulated audit work and compliance advice in the construction and real estate sector.
Peter commented: “I am delighted to have been made a Partner at the firm I first joined as a trainee. I have been supported every step of the way during my career, and in my new role I look forward to providing further opportunities around helping clients succeed in their business aims.”
Sarah Fitzgerald has also joined MHA Carpenter Box at Partner level with the Business Services Group. Sarah previously ran her own accountancy practice in West Sussex. She brings over 25 years’ experience to the firm and will be providing owner-managed businesses with expert advice covering strategic planning and business development, as well as providing expert tax and accounting support.
Sarah said: “I am thrilled to be joining the leadership team of such a forward-thinking firm of accountants. MHA Carpenter Box enjoys a great reputation across the region reflecting its progressive values and the importance it places on client relationships.”
In addition to the new Partners, MHA Carpenter Box has also appointed two new directors to its leadership team. James Gawman has been promoted from Associate within the Assurance and Advisory Group to Compliance Director, while Rachel Pearce has been promoted from Associate to Client Service Director in the Tax Services Group.
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
