Armstrong Watson Accountants has appointed Simon Turner as Director to head up the firm’s Northallerton office.
Mr Turner was previously a senior manager at KPMG, having worked for RSM Tenon earlier in his career.
He has extensive experience in the owner-managed business, education and charity sectors and is expected to play a significant role in the growth of the Northallerton team.
“North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley have an abundance of growing businesses and the opportunity to be on the doorstep of both regions is one I cannot wait to meet head on,” he said.
Joanna Gray, Partner and Head of Audit and Assurance, added: “Simon’s addition to the team is part of our continued expansion within the area and complements the strong presence we hold within the region.
“Simon has demonstrated he holds the same clear principles we value as a firm, embracing our commitment to assist regional businesses and to help facilitate profitable growth.”
