Katie manages a wide portfolio of clients working particularly closely with Chief Financial Officers and School Business Managers. Another keen fitness fanatic, when not at work or in the gym, Katie enjoys travelling and visiting new places on holiday.
Celebrating promotion to Assistant Manager is James Sykes. Based in our Scunthorpe office James joined as a trainee accountant in 2017 going on to qualify in 2021. James has a particular interest in personal tax planning and VAT. James is another keen sportsman in his spare time.
Rounding up the promotions is Amelia Jacklin. Amelia who is based in the firms’ Louth office has been promoted to assistant manager. She joined in 2016 originally working in the Grimsby office. Amelia later moved to the Louth office, qualifying in 2021. She works with a wide portfolio of clients from individuals through to partnerships and companies. Outside of work Amelia loves to explore new cities and going on road cycling trips, as well as spending time with family and friends.
Carrie continued, “These achievements are just another example of the success in our strategy in recruiting and developing local and home grown talent. I myself, like most of the partners in the firm, started on Forrester Boyd’s trainee accountancy programme so it is great to see even more of our talent progressing internally with their careers.”
