Newcastle-based, Ryecroft Glenton (RG) is celebrating two promotions within its specialist teams.
Jonathan Delaney has been promoted from Qualified Audit Senior to Audit and Assurance Manager. Sophie McElderry, a member of the Outsourced Services team has been promoted to Payroll Senior.
Jonathan joined RG as an ACA trainee in 2012 and obtained a First Class honours degree in Accounting from Northumbria University. During his chartered accountancy training he received four awards including ‘Best student in Northern Society Area’ for his performance in his ICAEW exams.
Jonathan said: “At RG, a firm with a particular strength in both audit and also assurance services, such as transactional due diligence, I have been encouraged to develop a broad skill set. In my new role as Audit & Assurance Manager, I am looking forward to continuing to develop my career and contributing to the success of our corporate clients.”
As a consequence of the demand for RG’s OutsourcedFD service, which was developed to fulfil clients’ requests for a flexible service delivering strategic input either in preference to employing their own accountant or to supplement their existing finance team, the requirement for payroll specialists has grown significantly.
Sophie joined the Accounts & Outsourced Services division in December 2016 and her promotion opportunity has risen from the continued growth of the payroll department.
Deborah Graham, Partner at RG, said: “Sophie and Jonathan have worked very hard and we are delighted to reward their development. I wish them both many congratulations on their promotions and for future success in their respective careers.”
