Bates Weston, the Derby based Business Advisors & Chartered Accountants, has appointed a new partner to support its 2018 plans.
Stuart Hulland has been with Bates Weston for 15 years having trained and qualified at the firm. He has extensive SME experience, and more recently has been the driving force behind the firm’s adoption of Xero online accounting software.
With client service at its heart, the firm has set its sights on delivering advice based on real time information whenever possible, and for some clients a cloud based service is the best option.
Glyn Evans, Managing Partner at the firm said of Stuart’s appointment: “Stuart has always delivered the highest standards of service to our clients. He has lead the Xero initiative, with admirable determination and we are delighted to be able to recognise his ongoing contribution to the growth of Bates Weston.”
“Bates Weston continues to be a leading training practice. Stuart’s career began with the firm, as a trainee and to see him become a partner demonstrates what can be achieved with good training, commitment and a strong focus on developing client relationships”.
The firm is commited to training, with their students achieving the highest exam results in the East Midlands region. They have also received the John Beere prize from the ICAEW at the NCASS Annual Dinner earlier this year.
