In Stoke-on-Trent, Dains’ audit teams have been promoted to more senior roles including Will Owusu who has been appointed to a semi senior role and Amy Ellis has become an audit senior.
In Birmingham, Akshay Patel, Amy Dobson, Jenny Sam, Lucy Whitehouse and Nick Garner are now all audit semi seniors while Rob Jones has been promoted to supervisor and Josh Hawthorn and Shiva Peters have progressed to assistant manager positions.
