At the start of 2017, Moore Thompson will be saying a fond farewell to Partner Tim Martin – and welcoming new Partner Heather Bright.
Tim qualified as an accountant in 1981 and joined WJ Ground & Co as a Partner in 1991 – which was subsequently acquired by Moore Thompson .
Tim has spent his time with the firm advising clients of all sizes, on issues ranging from basic accounts and tax returns to the more specialised areas of accountancy and tax planning.
Despite retiring from the position of Partner, he will continue to hold a consultancy role at the firm on a part-time basis.
His retirement coincides with the promotion of Heather Bright to the position of partner, with effect from 1 January 2017. She has been with the firm since 2003, having also joined following the acquisition of W J Ground & Co.
Heather will continue to work closely in her new role, as a Partner, with those taxation, audit and accounts, clients, she used to manage, and will be able to advise clients on a wide range of areas including:
- Taxation compliance and planning
- Audit and accounts
- Business plans
- Budgeting and finance
Heather’s former position as Audit and Accounts Manager, will be taken over by Emma Wilson. Having been with the firm since 2007, Emma is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and is a Fellow of the Association of Accounting Technicians.
Mark Hildred, Managing Partner at Moore Thompson, said: “We will all miss Tim; he has played an important part in our success over the last decade, but we are glad that he will still be working with us as a part-time consultant.
“We are also delighted that Heather will be joining our partner team at Moore Thompson, having shown herself to be a valuable addition to our practice since joining us.
“I would like to wish her and Emma the best of luck as they take on their new roles. I am sure they will continue to deliver exceptional services to clients.”
