PKF Francis Clark has promoted 12 rising stars to partner or director roles, as the firm continues to develop its next generation of leaders while supporting clients through the coronavirus pandemic.
Corporate tax specialist Adam Kefford becomes a partner, having joined the firm in 2005 as a graduate trainee.
The firm has also promoted 11 members of staff from across a range of specialist services to the role of director. They include Truro-based Nicky Cornish and Ian Hughes, who specialise in advising family and owner managed businesses.
Managing partner Andrew Richards said: “While our priority in recent months has been supporting clients – and our own people – through the upheaval of the current pandemic, it’s important that we continue to develop our workforce to meet their needs in the longer term.
“It’s fantastic to see talented staff progress within the firm as they develop their skills and gain experience. It’s something we actively encourage, and we always look to promote talent from within.
“I’m very proud of the work everyone has done to get to this milestone and wish them every success in the next chapter of their careers with PKF Francis Clark. It’s a challenging time for all businesses, but it’s great to be able to take a moment to celebrate this positive news.”
PKF Francis Clark has 56 partners and over 750 staff across the firm’s network of eight offices in Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Poole, Taunton, Torquay, Truro and Salisbury.
