The Big 4
ChadStone Accountancy and Tax celebrated it's 4th Anniversary in May.
You may have seen from our Twitter or Facebook posts announcing that ChadStone celebrated its 4th anniversary in May. In the crowded market place of financial services, we feel that this is an achievement to be proud of and a perfect time to reflect on the journey so far.
We have always felt that our unique selling point is that we can share our big firm experience and knowledge but not at the expense of personal contact and service agility. And in the beginning, we hoped that this would overcome the trepidation that people sometimes have about signing on with smaller independent companies rather than larger, well-recognised accountants.
In our first year, with hard work, persistence, and of course, a healthy measure of good fortune, we were able to reach and gain new clients who were willing to give a small start-up the chance to prove themselves. To those wonderful souls, we thank you. From our small start we have steadily grown; not only our client base and our list of services, but also our team of staff.
Starting off with just Alex and Rob in their exciting but fairly echoey new office, there are now eight members of staff filling up the desks and another apprentice currently being recruited. All this growth is to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our existing clients and to give us the capacity to take on the new work that is increasingly coming our way. But all this growth also means we are starting to bust at the seams so, in this, our fifth year, ChadStone will be moving to larger premises that we think is practically perfect in every way. Watch out for further updates from us on LinkedIn, and on Twitter and Facebook.
We feel very proud of the staff team that we have and think that a special mention must go to Dave Leddington, qualified accountant and numbers whizz, for working so hard all year but particularly throughout December 2017 and January this year. Another mention should go to Owen Hamblett, our 2017 Apprentice recruit who has quickly become a real asset to the ChadStone team.
And on that note, ChadStone is a firm that knows that it takes a great team to build the dream and so if you are interested in working with us and think that you have something to add to our mix, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Contact details can be found here.
It has been a wonderful, liberating and educational four years. We are truly thankful. And not only for our business development. Over the same time that we have been working hard to create a successful accountancy firm, there has been a wedding, several house moves and most recently, we have welcomed (within 9 weeks of each other!) three new babies to the ChadStone family; Finlay, Noah and Rory. To all our family and friends who have supported us throughout, thank you.
Here's to the next 4 years of ChadStone.
