SBP Accountants and Business Advisers appoints Stuart Clark as new director
North-east accountancy firm SBP Accountants and Business Advisers has welcomed senior manager Stuart Clark as its new director, as the company positions itself for further growth across its four regional offices.
Stuart Clark’s promotion has made him the youngest member of the team to achieve director level in the business.
Mr Clark, aged 34, has been with the firm for five years and is currently responsible for running the firm’s Aberdeen office, as well as managing a varied client base. A fully qualified ACCA, he joined the business initially as an accounts assistant and has worked his way through three management levels to become a director.
SBP managing partner, John Hannah, said: “Stuart has been a valued member of the SBP team from day one and he has worked extremely hard to climb through the ranks. He has been instrumental in supporting the transition to digital accounting and is focussed on ensuring that the business remains at the forefront in technology which ensures a seamless service for clients, as well as streamlined internal systems for our team. As a director, he will become more involved in supporting the business to achieve its future ambitions through continued growth.”
Mr Clark added: “SBP’s career progression programme has really supported me towards my goals so it’s an honour to be the youngest appointed director within the firm. I have strong digital knowledge and understanding of changes in the industry in terms of technology software and working practices, so it’s been a focus of mine to ensure that SBP remains at the digital forefront. Moving forward, as well as continuing to support the running of the Aberdeen office, I will continue to be focussed on the systems side, processes and internal updates.”
The firm, which also has offices in Peterhead, Fraserburgh and Banff, currently has 33 employees and five partners. The appointment is in line with SBP’s internal team structure which has further improved efficiencies and quality within the business, allowing the team additional time to offer 4000 plus clients added expertise within business or personal finances, or supporting clients to achieve goals through a planned approach.
