Celebrating Staff PromotionsWritten on November 21, 2023 by Kirk Rice LLP

The Partners are delighted to announce a number of well deserved promotions within the Kirk Rice team.

Kirk Rice LLP is delighted to announce the further strengthening of the firm with the promotion of Kirsty Heslop, Sarah Godwin, Gauhar Chaudhary, Jamie Fudge and Jack Leach.

Kirsty joined Kirk Rice in 2001 when she was 19, straight from completing her A levels. She was our first-ever apprentice and our second ‘homegrown’ partner. She completed her FCCA training with the firm in 2006 and has progressed through the management development programme. She was promoted to Outsourcing Manager and then Director in 2018, providing an in-house finance function to various clients. Kirsty has been instrumental in developing the outsourced accounting team and looks forward to working alongside her co-partners, helping to lead the team and strengthen client relationships and services.

Sarah Godwin joined Kirk Rice in 2005 after qualifying as a Chartered Certified accountant in 2004 at a local firm. After eight years working in our outsourced accounting team, Sarah spent a brief period working in industry, gaining valuable client experience, which she brought back to her role as Senior Manager in accounting and audit when she rejoined Kirk Rice in 2018. Sarah’s consistent hard work and dedication have paid off, and we couldn’t be prouder of her achievements. We know Sarah will do a fantastic job in her new role as Director of our Fleet general practice team.

Gauhar Chaudhary joined our Ascot general practice team in 2017 after completing his FCCA qualifications 2011 at another firm. Moving into our tax team in 2019, Gauhar worked hard to further his qualifications when he completed his CTA in 2022, enabling him to advise across the commercial and personal tax. Gauhar’s expertise and commitment to his work and clients is admirable, and we are excited to see what he will achieve in his new role as Director.

Jamie Fudge joined our Ascot general practice team as Client Manager in 2020 after qualifying as a Chartered Certified accountant in 2018 at a regional firm in Somerset. Jamie works hard on audit, guiding our clients through what can be quite an arduous and daunting process. His contributions are invaluable, and we are confident he will excel in this new role as Senior Audit Manager as we continue to grow our audit service.

Last but not least, Jack Leach joined our Ascot general practice team as an Associate in 2019, working hard to complete his accountancy training and qualifying as a Chartered accountant in 2022. Before Kirk Rice, he graduated from Durham University with a 2:1 in Politics and Philosophy. Jack’s constant commitment, hard work and dedication to our clients is exemplary, and we know you will continue to deliver outstanding service in your new role as Client Manager.

Maxine Guest, Partner, said, ‘Please join me in congratulating Sarah, Gauhar, Jamie, and Jack on their well-deserved promotions. We’re confident that they will achieve great success in their new roles, and we’re excited to see where their journey takes each of them next.’

A strong supporting team has allowed these team members to advance, secure in the knowledge that our clients’ affairs will continue to be managed to an excellent standard.
