Kreston Reeves appoints new HR Director

Accountants, business and financial advisers Kreston Reeves has appointed a new HR Director, Sharn Manku, as the firm looks to further develop its transformative HR and training function.

Sharn joined Kreston Reeves in late February from Wolters Kluwer, the tax and accounting information and technology provider, where she was Head of Human Resources for three business units in Europe including the UK and Ireland.

Kreston Reeves has offices across London, Kent and Sussex, and is just one in four accountancy firms recognised by Ofsted as an Employee Training Provider. It has a high staff retention rate with staff surveys scoring the firm highly on satisfaction, advocacy, loyalty and a willingness to do more. The firm is underpinned by its values of understanding, looking ahead, making it personal, being crystal clear, and, most importantly, being human.

Commenting on her appointment, Sharn said: "The recruitment market in the accountancy sector is fierce as the demand for accountancy services increases. Kreston Reeves is in a good place with a strong employer brand and a first-class training programme.

"But there is more we can do to support the firm's ambitious growth plans and vision. Now, more so than ever, it is critical for accountancy firms to invest in their people, support talent development, and build the best possible HR function as the sector embraces a new working landscape."

Nigel Fright, Managing Partner, Kreston Reeves adds: "We're delighted to welcome Sharn to the team to lead HR and people engagement initiatives. She brings a terrific track record in creating transformational HR teams both at Wolters Kluwer and in her role as Chief HR Officer at HCA Healthcare and we look forward to the contribution she will make to the firm's continued growth and development.

"We're proud of the culture that we've built together with all our people and truly believe this is what stands us apart from peers."
