“Joining the Management Board means that I’ll have a key role in determining the future of the business as we approach our 100th anniversary in just a few years. I’m passionate about enabling our teams of experts to continue to deliver the excellent service that they provide our clients.”
Rachel Barrett has been promoted to director at Duncan & Toplis’ Louth office, joining the current office director, Nick Cudmore, who has been in the role for 12 years.
Following her promotion, Rachel Barrett said: “I’m thrilled to be appointed as the new Louth office director and I’m looking forward to bringing my ideas to life as we look to the future.
Mark Foster has been promoted to associate director after 12 years at the company’s office in Grantham. Mark joined the team straight from university and has worked his way through Duncan & Toplis’ development programme.
Mark said: “I’m very fortunate to have worked with a great team and some really interesting and diverse clients over the past 12 years and I look forward to building on these relationships in my new role. Duncan & Toplis is a wonderful place to work and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to continue my progression here.”
Managing director Adrian Reynolds added: “We’ve achieved some great things over the past 12 months, from several award wins to becoming a Top 30 UK accountancy firm and our latest appointments will help us build on these successes.
“I’m delighted that at Duncan & Toplis, we continue to bring more and more talented professionals to these senior positions as we push forward with our vision for the next few years and grow the company. Mark, Mark and Rachel bring years of experience and client knowledge to their respective roles, and I’m confident they will be hugely successful moving forward.”
