WR Partners continue to grow

Shropshire accountants WR Partners have announced three senior promotions as the firm focuses on future growth after acquiring another business.

The last 18 months have been challenging for most businesses, and during this time, few would have considered the bold actions of re-branding or acquiring another large business, but WR Partners did both, and thanks to their continued exceptional performance, three members of the team have been promoted to senior roles.

Sarah Davies has been promoted to rural director - she joined the business after completing her A-Levels at 18 and has always worked in the Rural team, and is now part of its leadership team.

Sarah said: “I have been supported and encouraged over the years by my managers and partners and this really helped my continued personal development, I am now looking forward to developing the team and working more closely with our Rural clients."

Phil Pugh is now a director working from the Newtown office. He joined the practice in 2008 on the graduate programme and has worked from the Mid-Wales office ever since.

He has worked in various areas of accountancy but specialises in work for business and commercial clients. Phil said: “I believe a can-do attitude and hard work both with colleagues and clients has been the key to my progression over the years. The team we have at Newtown is youthful and energetic and with their positive attitude I am looking forward to seeing and being part of great things for the office in the future”.

Tracey Hayward started working as financial controller for the business 21 years ago, working from small offices located in a Shrewsbury town house, where she ran the company payroll. Through this work she was responsible for the transition from a paper-based payroll to a digital system and developing the payroll bureau service for clients.

She has been promoted to director of employer services, and wants to continue to expand the team and the work it does. “By offering our clients the best advice and support for what is arguably one of the most important functions of their business – paying their staff, we build trust and develop long-standing working relationships."

Managing partner Helen Spencer said: “We are committed to providing our people with career development opportunities, recognising great achievement, and unlocking potential.

"We share success throughout the year, promoting when people are ready and there is a business need. Sarah, Phil, and Tracey have all worked for the practice for most of their working lives and their dedication and hard work over the years has contributed to the continuing growth of our business. I am personally delighted they have all been promoted to the role of director and look forward to seeing their journey continue with WR Partners in the years ahead”.
