Accountancy and business advisory firm Moore and Smalley has appointed Graham Gordon as its new managing partner.
Mr Gordon, head of financial planning and wealth management, takes up the role from David Ingram, who has held the post at the Lancaster firm since 2008.
During that time, the firm has increased its fee income from £8million to £11million, breaking into the UK’s top 60 accountancy firms bracket.
Adrienne Collinge, Moore and Smalley HR partner, said: “Since day one, we’ve had a strong succession-led constitution which sees us rotate the managing partner role.
“This means the firm is always looking to the future, evolving and giving our people opportunity to contribute their skills and experience.
“It was a carefully considered selection process and Graham impressed the review board with how he aims to take the firm forward into its next phase of development.”
Mr Gordon will take up the position from October.
In a further change to the company’s management team, Christine Wilson will become finance partner.
Moore and Smalley employs more than 200 staff and also has offices in Blackpool, Preston, Kendal and the East Midlands.
