PKF Francis Clark chartered accountants are celebrating the promotions of two new partners and five new directors.

Chloe Mills and Liam Dushynsky are made partners in the firm, while Chris Rodgers, Sarah Brown, Adam Waddle, Kieran Hancock and Mark Bishop are promoted to director roles. They are all based in Exeter, Poole, Torquay and Plymouth.

Chloe joined the firm as a director of audit in 2010 and is responsible for overseeing audit and accounting services at the Poole office. She enjoys building close working relationships with clients, gaining a full understanding of their businesses and aspirations for the future.

“The culture here is one of commitment to our clients and I look forward to playing my part in both helping our clients prosper and further growing our business across Dorset and beyond,” said Chloe.

Exeter-based Liam joined PKF Francis Clark in 2005 as a graduate trainee and is now a key member of the firm’s VAT and customs team.

“Over the past 16 years, I’ve seen the firm grow enormously,” said Liam. "What I love about my work is solving real business issues for our clients. The stereotype of accountants just crunching numbers is long gone – our job is about helping people do business.

“I’ve learned something new every day, and I gain a lot of satisfaction from seeing my team grow in knowledge and expertise. I am excited about our future. My ambition for the team is to enable more businesses to get on with what they do best.”
