HWB, the Chandler's Ford-headquartered accountants, said Nick Whitemore has been promoted to associate director from senior business advisor after arriving at the practice from Azets in late 2022.

He is the latest colleague at the Hampshire-based firm to progress from business advisor to associate level in the past 18 months.

"Time has flown by," said Whitemore, a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and graduate in Business and Finance from Southampton Solent University.

He will work closely with clients who seek accounts, advice and tax services including individuals, owner-managed businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

"It’s great to be part of the HWB team. Everyone is enthusiastic about providing the best for our clients while winning new business too.

"I’ll still be very much involved on the client side, growing relationships, but I’m delighted to have been afforded this opportunity to step up. I’m very excited about the challenge."

He added: "Whoever is in government after the prospective general election this year, I suspect we will see even more change to the business environment coming over the horizon.

"Because of that, it remains crucial for businesses to stay in touch with their professional advisers and secure the best financial and tax management plans to underpin their operational activities and investment programmes."

Southampton-born Nick will attend monthly directors’ meetings and work more closely with the ten-strong board led by managing director Tracy Jenkins.

She said: "Since joining us, Nick has demonstrated and applied his skills, insight and professional experience for our clients’ benefit.

"We are always looking to promote and encourage growth amongst our team and Nick’s promotion forms part of our overall company strategy based around the strength of our business advice services."

HWB chartered accountants was founded in 1985 as Hopper Williams & Bell. The firm provides accounting, tax and business advisory services to organisations across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and West Sussex.
