Wilkins Kennedy: Winchester office’s movers and shakers

It’s been a mammoth start to the year for leading accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy’s Winchester based office, as they welcome a number of new starters to the team.

Philip Collier and Chris Hill all recently joined the rapidly expanding Winchester office.  Phil has come from PWC, he will continue his training as a Corporate Tax Advisor, whilst continuing his studies towards an ACA and CTA qualifications. Chris joins as a Business Services Supervisor, originally from Arlington Accountants Ltd. where he spent 8 years building up his career and gained his ICAEW qualification.

The office has also welcomed a second batch of “new starters”. Helen Thorpe, who left her role at the NHS to join the admin team as a project administrator.

Helen was followed by Viktoriya Smal, a payroll administrator who previously worked for Dynamite Recruitment and Electron Dynamics as a payroll administrator, and finally but by no means least, Stephanie Court, a Personal Tax Advisor joins  from HSBC where she worked as a Tax Technical Manager.

The news comes following Wilkins Kennedy’s successful merger with FBR Accounting at the end of 2015 which saw several new starters as well as the expansion of the current professional services offering, with particular areas of specialism in cloud services.

Ian Talbot, Managing Partner of Wilkins Kennedy’s Winchester and Romsey offices, said: “It’s been great to welcome everyone to the firm and it is so satisfying to see growth within the Winchester office.

“I wish all the new starters the very best of luck.”
