New Directors appointed to build on a successful year at RG

Ryecroft Glenton (RG), has announced that Jon Routledge and Dan Cooper have been promoted to Director, following a year of strong performance by the leading Newcastle-based advisory firm.

Dan Cooper has been promoted to support the fast growth in RG’s Accounts & Outsourced Services division. Having been instrumental in the development of RG’s OutsourcedFD service, which provides strategic advice to clients using cloud-based real-time management information, Dan’s brief in his new Director role is to continue to expand the firm’s range of cloud based digital services.

Jon Routledge has been made a Director after an 11-year career with RG that began when he joined the firm as a graduate from Newcastle University.  A dual qualified Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, Jon advises RG’s larger corporate clients on all aspects of accounts, audit and tax, working closely with partners Grahame Maughan, head of RG’s Audit & Assurance division and Simon Whiteside, who joined the firm in February to head up RG’s Business Tax division.

These promotions will help RG build on the progress made in the last 12 months, with the firm being shortlisted for the Independent Accountancy Firm of the Year award at the 2018 North East Accountancy Awards and RG’s Corporate Finance service line recognised at the Insider Dealmaker awards in September 2017, where partner Carl Swansbury won the Young Dealmaker of the Year award.

Peter Glenton, partner at RG, said: “The last 12 months have been significant in the 117-year history of RG, with our re-branding bringing greater clarity to the services we offer.  This has been supported by strong financial performance and headcount growth across the firm’s 6 service lines.

“Promoting Dan and Jon to Director is part of our long-term strategy to develop our people, creating opportunities for talented individuals to take on senior roles, whilst enhancing and evolving our services to ensure our clients receive the highest levels of expert advice and support.”
