‘Dream come true’ as Jack takes Robson Laidler role

An accountancy firm has made a senior promotion.

Robson Laidler has appointed Jack Spoor as an associate director.

The 32-year-old, from High Heaton, Newcastle, has worked at Robson Laidler since qualifying as a Chartered certified accountant in 2015, and becomes its fifth trainee to progress to a director position.

Bosses say he will continue to lead the firm’s advisory department, which has seen 22 per cent growth in the past 12 months.

Beginning his career in the business’ audit and assurance team, Jack [pictured, above] developed and grew business advisory services, in particular research and development, cashflow mapping and business coaching.

He said: “To have made it to director is a dream come true.

“The continued aim with our advisory services is to increase revenue in the department by providing the best service possible to clients, which helps them find clarity and achieve success in their business and personal lives.”

Graham Purvis, managing director at the firm, which has bases in Newcastle and Chester-le-Street, added: “Jack made clear his personal ambitions early on, and has taken full ownership and responsibility for driving his career progression.

“With Jack at the helm, advisory services has an exciting future, and he will join the rest of the directors in contributing to the strategic direction, and shape, of the business going forward.

“Our commitment to learning and development continues to evolve to meet shifting needs and support sustainability and succession, with the rise of many of our younger directors evidence of such.”
