Regional accountancy practice Rothmans has announced that Andrew Spencer has been appointed as a director at the Havant office, one of 12 Rothmans offices across the South.
Andrew, who lives in Portsmouth, joined Rothmans in 2009 as a Senior Manager. He has worked in the profession for 25 years, initially with a local firm and then subsequently with a national accountancy firm where he undertook a number of different roles, including working as Acting Finance Director for a client.
During his time working in this role for a small company with a £2.5 million turnover, Andrew helped to turn the business around within one year from a £250k loss to a £100k profit.
“At Rothmans I work with business owners in the SME marketplace to help them make improvements to their business results,” Andrew says. “Having an insight into the pressures of the FD role has been extremely useful when advising clients, as I have experienced dealing with the problems they face and have succeeded in changing things for the better.”
One of Andrew’s clients is Portsmouth-based Astute Technical Recruitment Ltd, whose Managing Director, Terry Buckel, comments: “Andrew’s genuine interest and drive to help us succeed has made a huge difference to our organisation.
“He works in partnership with us rather than merely regarding us as a client, assuming the role of financial director for our company when negotiating commercial arrangements with banks and other institutions. The service he has provided has been excellent and he has been a pleasure to work with.”
