Recovery Team Scaling up at RMT Accountants
March 11, 2019
We have strengthened our senior management team on the back of a strong first half of the year by adding three new directors to our board.
We appointed Paul Gainford as new director of client services, and Phil Harnby and Richard Humphreys have both been appointed as directors of our specialist medical division, RMT Healthcare.
Each new director is taking on responsibilities across different parts of our operations, as well as heading up their own specific teams, and they collectively bring over 50 years’ industry experience to their new posts.
Paul Gainford, who has been with us for 17 years, says: “The key to RMT’s continuing success has been the ability to really get under the skin of our clients’ businesses, understand what their personal and commercial objectives are, and deliver the services, advice and support they need to achieve them in the most efficient way possible.
“The accountancy profession has changed out of all recognition since I first joined the firm, with clients rightly having higher expectations of a proactive business advice-based service, and RMT’s way of working has kept evolving to ensure we’ve stayed at the forefront of the industry.
“My new role gives me a great opportunity to make wider use of my technical accounting and audit knowledge, and to help our growing team deliver their expert insight and guidance to our clients with ever greater impact.”
Mike Pott, our managing director, adds: “Having been in business for more than six decades, the RMT story is one of constantly refreshing and developing our operations as the needs of our clients evolve and grow.
“Paul, Phil and Richard are all outstanding practitioners, with the capacity to understand and deliver on their clients’ objectives. Their expertise will bring a new perspective to the commercial opportunities that the business can look to pursue.
“It’s especially pleasing to be able to promote people from within our high-calibre team into director roles, and it also creates new career opportunities into which other members of the team can grow.
“RMT has enjoyed a strong first half of the year, with pleasing levels of growth being secured across all our divisions, and strengthening our board in this way provides fresh momentum for further progress.”
