A West Yorkshire certified public accountant has announced the of their first ever all-female board of directors in step with International Women’s Day on March 8.
Huddersfield-based Revell Ward has delivered the board shake-up because it prepares for further expansion throughout 2018.
The move has come about as a part of the firm’s offers increase turnover through a strategy focussed on long-term business support and advisory services for existing and new clients.
The re-structured board involves audit director, Karen Borowski, tax director, Lesley Sutton and business services director, Jennifer Davies.
Commenting moving around, Ms Borowski, said:?“All-female boards have become rare within a male-dominated sector like ours, and we all have already been way killing the national target for PLCs. In spite of the laughs we’ve had around ‘doing it with the girls’, one can find very sound business reasons for our decision.
She continued:?The traditional role associated with an accountant is evolving. Business owners can access and rehearse accounting software relatively easily, and fewer are paying accountants to perform basic principles for them.? These are instead interested in added value business services they will cannot source internally, which include entry to a professional financial controller, strategic support at Board level and tax advice.
This means our approach will have to change in to keep pace and grow the business, and we all believe our look at long-term partnerships and relationship building through our new board will enable us to do simply that.”
