One of Harrogate’s fastest-growing accountancy practices has appointed a new senior accountant – doubling staff numbers in just six months.
CCF Accountancy has welcomed Jackie Dowker to the team, on South Park Road, and owner Teresa Bowe says she has further expansion plans later in 2012.
“Jackie joins us from another local practice and her experience is already proving invaluable,” said Teresa. “CCF is going through an intensive period of growth at the moment – we have doubled our turnover in the past year and taken on a lot of new clients, so it’s vital we have someone of her calibre on board.
“If business continues to expand as planned we expect to be making further appointments later on in the year, which is very exciting.”
With a Liverpool office run by Martin Denison and consultant Roy Lancaster looking after business in West Yorkshire, Jackie’s appointment takes the CCF team – which was three-strong in January – up to six.
“We’re growing rapidly but are still committed to our ethos of ‘Customers Come First’ – it’s what we stand for, literally,” said Teresa.
“The main investment has been blood, sweat and tears – and, as you’d expect from an accountant, every move has been planned strategically with careful forecasting and financial management.”
Jackie added: “I’m delighted to join CCF and looking forward to getting to know my new clients and associates. Teresa’s approach matches my own views – customers are the most important part of any business and their interests come first.”
