Sussex-based MHA Carpenter Box continues to invest in 'home grown' talent, with the promotion of Chris Reeves to Partner at the accountancy firm.
Chris, 33, has been appointed Partner having joined the practice as a trainee in 2004. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant (ACCA) in 2010 and helped to set up the firm's Gatwick office in 2015.
Chris commented: "MHA Carpenter Box has been a significant part of my life for the last 16 years since joining as a trainee, and I'm delighted to be made a Partner. It's a great place to work, with brilliant people and I look forward to advising and engaging with clients for many years to come.
"Clearly, the business world is facing significant challenges at the moment, but we are working closely with clients to ensure they have access to the latest available information and the best advice through our dedicated coronavirus hub. We are also adapting our working practices to ensure we continue to provide the best possible support at this critical time. For example, to help facilitate audit work, we're using technology such as Skype and Teams for virtual stocktake attendances."
In his role as Partner, Chris will help to drive the AAG (Assurance and Advisory Group) department forward as significant changes in the world of audit are expected over the next 12 months. Currently, he specialises in audit services focused on motor retail, pension schemes and FCA regulated entities in general, such as Independent Financial Advisers and brokers.
He lives in Shoreham-by-Sea and, having recently married, he enjoys family time with his spouse and two children. Outside of work, he takes a keen interest in football, tennis, golf and cars.
