Bringing in the New Year, Watson Buckle has made a double director appointment as the Bradford-based accountancy firm lays the groundwork for growth.

Gillian Craven and Andrew Padgett will both join the existing directors, a move which coincides with the retirement of Joint Managing Director, Susan Sedgwick.

Mr Padgett has been with the firm since 2015 having joined from a top 30 accountancy practice. He provides advice and support with audit and accounts preparation, business advisory, and strategic planning.

Ms Craven, meanwhile, started her career at Watson Buckle in 2005 as a graduate trainee. She leads audits for a wide variety of clients, including pension schemes and FCA-regulated businesses – always ensuring they receive a consistently high-quality service.

“It is exciting to have Andrew and Gillian as newly appointed Directors,” said MD Mark Wilcock.

“They have both fully invested themselves into the role and have worked immensely hard to get where they are today. I am sure they will inject plenty of new energy and ideas into the direction and success of our firm.”
