The Newcastle office of national accountancy firm, Haines Watts, has welcomed Nicola Bell as a new Associate Partner following a period of significant growth.

Speaking about her new role, Nicola said: “With its bold future growth plans, this is an exciting time to be joining Haines Watts North East. It’s great to be working with a company that has a strong national presence, combined with a deep understanding of the local market – I’m very excited to be a part of the team.
“I will be managing a diverse portfolio of clients, developing relationships and adding valuable insights to help businesses grow. It will certainly be a busy few months, getting to know the team and our clients, but I am very much looking forward to taking on the challenge.”

“2019 has been a significant year of growth, during which we have welcomed new senior staff, merged with Gateshead-based RHK Accountants, and launched new specialist service lines. All of which have helped to strengthen our position as the go-to advisors for owner managed businesses in the North East.”
