Redditch chartered accountancy firm Hayward Wright has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of a widely-respected accountant.
Management accountant and business finance specialist Gareth Wood has joined the Redditch practice as a client manager.
With established links across the local business community, the 29 year-old will work closely with the firm’s clients – advising on a variety of areas including management accounts and tax planning. He will also guide new and expanding businesses, providing them with accountancy and commercial advice.
Alistair Hayward-Wright, founder and managing director of Hayward Wright Chartered Accountants said: “Gareth is a talented accountant and is already making an impact internally, and with our clients.
“He is commercially aware and his business expertise adds another dimension to our already strong client offering.
“Part of Gareth’s role is also to open new doors for us in the local business community and develop our existing relations with large and small organisations. He is a first-rate addition to the team.”
Gareth Wood added: “I have known Alistair and the team at Hayward Wright for a number of years and have always been impressed by their honest, friendly approach and how the team is encouraged to develop the practice.
“Joining a firm with that approach, especially during such an exciting period of growth, is fantastic. I hope to bring a fresh outlook to the table and the ability to work closely alongside clients as an extension of their business.”
Born in Redditch, Mr Wood is a member of AAT – the professional body for accounting technicians. His appointment comes only two months after the privately-owned firm, which employs a team of 13, unveiled their new £180,000 Redditch headquarters.
Hayward Wright specialises in a variety of financial matters including tax planning, book keeping, accounts, audit reports and commercial finance.
