Mazars promotes and looks to the future

International accountancy firm Mazars has announced 11 promotions across its central region offices in Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester and Milton Keynes.

In Birmingham, Lee Patrick has been promoted to manager in the audit team, Timothy Thackaberry to the senior manager in forensic investigation services, Matthew Byers to manager in the internal audit team, and Adam Webb to assistant manager in the financial planning division.

Birmingham office managing partner Lee Cartwright said “Mazars is a firm which recognises and nurtures talent.

“Our growth in the West Midlands has reflected the national success of the firm and Birmingham is now a £12 million revenue per year office.

“This has seen our headcount in the city increase from 90 to 130.”

Ian Pickford, Mazars’ central region managing partner, said: “We are constantly looking to the future and I congratulate all of the staff who have been promoted.

“In the same breath though, as a national firm, we are already looking ahead to the autumn and seeking applications from school leavers and graduates to support our next phase of growth.”

The news comes after Mazars nationally announced growth in UK profits by 18.2 per cent in the year to August 31, 2014.

The firm’s profit before tax increased to £26.2 million compared to £22.2 million in the previous year.

Overall fee income for the same period was up 8.6 per cent to £130.9 million, marking five successive years of growth and an overall increase in revenues of 28 per cent during the same period. The firm has now recorded fee income growth for nine out of the last ten years.
