Richard Thompson is on the shortlist in the North East Accountancy Awards’ Finance Director of the Year category.

He said: “I was put forward for this award by a member of staff, Beth, and when she told me I was very honoured, but didn’t really think anything would come of it.

“So when Beth told me I had made the final I was overwhelmed – I really can’t believe it.

“I just do what I do because I enjoy it. Myself and the team are always working hard to provide our clients with the best possible service and to be recognised for these achievements is a great feeling.”

The company, which started trading in 1994, has grown over the last four years by 37 per cent and it employs a total of 11 staff offering advice on all aspects of personal and business tax and financial affairs.

June 28 is the date for the awards ceremony.
