One of the largest independent accountancy practices in the Midlands has appointed four new directors and two new associate directors.

Michele Coe-Baxter, Alistair Main and Matt Herd have been promoted to director after having been associate directors with Duncan & Toplis in Skegness, Spalding and Boston.

Rebecca Bright has been promoted to director after working as a manager at the company’s Grantham office.

Meanwhile, Rachel Sanders and Tara Beeston have become Associate Directors after having previously worked as manager and senior manager in Newark and Lincoln respectively.

The promotions reflect the growing client base at the company, which last month won the Investor in Customers Gold Award for exceptional service.

Speaking about her promotion, Michele Coe-Baxter said: “When I started here 22 years ago as a trainee accountant, I never imagined that I’d end up becoming a director. Duncan & Toplis has certainly changed since I started, growing from just four offices to 11 across the East Midlands. Although it’s grown, Duncan & Toplis has always been a great employer that’s full of opportunities and we’re now able to support our clients in more ways than ever before.

“I know it sounds corny, but I’ve always loved seeing my clients succeed and knowing that I’ve played a part in supporting them. As a director, I’ll be hoping to build on our portfolio of caravan and residential parks so I’ll make sure our commitment to clients remains at the heart of everything we do. I’m really looking forward to starting my new challenge with the company.

Speaking about the new appointments, Managing Director Adrian Reynolds said: “I’m really pleased that we can bring so many extremely talented colleagues to these senior positions within the company.  With the new directors having worked at our offices in Lincoln, Newark, Boston, Grantham and Skegness, they understand the needs of clients across our region in a wide range of sectors. They’ll continue to be based in these offices but their individual sets of skills and expertise will help us deliver even better services to our clients and shape the direction of the company in future.”
