We’ve kept things under wraps recently but it’s time to announce some thrilling and great news.

Will Smart is now our new Managing Partner, taking over from Nick Warne and will work closely with our partners across all offices to lead the long-term strategic plan for the business.

Will originally trained with the firm in the 90s then pursued a career outside the practice, only to return and become a Partner with Cottons in 2017.

“We understand that our people and our personalised approach are our greatest assets and we’re committed to offering our clients reliable, first-class service at every step in their business journey.

That’s why we’re lucky to have experienced partners and directors in charge of various specialist areas within the business, from corporate finance solutions to guide businesses through mergers and acquisitions, to bespoke accounting and audit packages for SMEs; regardless of the service, our approach is always simple – we’re always your partners.“ Will Smart, Managing Partner.

Our newest appointments also include Ollie Warne and Callum Veasey who are our new Partners at the London and Market Harborough offices.

And of course, we wouldn’t be this far without our wider team, that’s why we recognised the efforts of Enamul Khan, Sarah Kite, James Melvin, Sarah Randall and Aneta Sheridan who have been promoted to Director level.

“I feel very fortunate to be able to say that I genuinely enjoy the career I have built with Cottons and I am proud to have been formally recognised in this role of Director. This has been, and continues to be a real partnership; I have supported Cottons as the team has grown and they have supported me throughout my own journey. I look forward to an exciting future with the team.” said Sarah Randall.

Having been with the company since June 2005, a whopping 16 years, Sarah’s time at Cottons is a true statement of dedication and proof of a rewarding career.

New hires also include Ana Dima, our lead Marketing Manager, in charge of shaping the marketing strategy moving forward, Karl Olson our Business System Analyst and Ceba-Joy Pink in our Business Support role.

We’re delighted to have everyone on board and fully believe that investing in a blend of senior experience and fresh talent will help shape a strong service offering for both our existing and new clients.
