Spotlight on Jane Parry, Managing Partner

Jane Parry WebsiteSince becoming managing partner of PM+M on 1 May this year, life has been busy.

I have been continuing to drive our growth plans and create a continual focus on clients and their experience of dealing with us.  As part of this, we have just started a programme of client service visits to ask how we are doing and what we could do better.

We’re always delighted to receive feedback, good or bad. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

We’ve added two new partners since 1 May – Helen Clayton in our Corporate Services team and Andrew Cowking in Run My Business.  Both of them are already adding fresh ideas and value to PM+M.  We also welcome aboard the clients who joined us with Andrew and look forward to meeting you soon.

This month our headcount has surpassed 80 people for the first time when we took on an apprentice in our Run My Business team.  We’re looking forward to seeing them grow alongside our other trainees to help better service our clients.

We’re looking forward to moving into our new Burnley office. The builders are in at the moment and we are hoping to be in our shiny new office by the end of October. The office will be larger than our current Burnley office, allowing us to expand our team and provide a greater focus on helping Burnley and East Lancashire businesses.

We’re delighted to welcome all new clients to PM+M and, in particular, we were very pleased to be reappointed as auditors and tax compliance advisers for Blackburn Rovers.

Last week two of our partners, Stephen Anderson (Managing Partner) & Tim Mills (Corporate Finance Partner) attended the Praxity Global Annual Conference in Miami.

Praxity is an award-winning alliance of global independent accountancy, tax and business consulting firms. We find being a Praxity member pivotal to our growth ambitions as it brings together like-minded firms that meet to share insight and expert knowledge internationally, giving us the ability to deliver unmatched client service.

The Praxity Global Annual Conference is a fantastic event, and this year was no different. Miami hosted some world class speakers who discussed various topics including mindfulness training, client service excellence, why loyalty is key to building client relationships and the importance of a clear culture within accountancy practices.

Stephen Anderson said “the ability to share and learn from others’ experience across the globe is a priceless resource that gives us, the whole PM+M team, a real advantage in implementing our growth plans. The speaker sessions provided us with quality insights into some of the thought leadership that is taking place in our profession at the moment.”

Tim Mills said “discussing matters with like-minded advisers from across the globe and taking new ideas from inspirational speakers is part of the continual development which is a fundamental element of the culture at PM+M.”
