Pierce appoints former rugby player in senior role

Leading Lancashire-based accountancy and business advisory group, Pierce has appointed Chartered Accountant Jimmy Moore to the role of Audit and Accounts Senior.

Jimmy, a former Sale Sharks rugby star whose career ended prematurely due to an ankle injury – joins Pierce from Preston-based Haleys Business Advisors.

With significant accounts, audit and business advisory expertise, Jimmy has worked with a wide range of Lancashire SMEs and brings more than eight years’ experience to the role.

The appointment comes at a time of growth for Pierce which is experiencing strong demand for its services across the region.

James King, Director at Pierce, said: “Where business confidence and investment was subdued last year, 2018 is feeling markedly busier with mergers, acquisitions, MBO’s, expansion plans and business advisory requirements all on the rise.

“In order to grow our business and continue providing the best possible service to our clients, we are focussed on attracting and retaining the very best people. As an experienced manager with a talent for building great rapport with clients, Jimmy will be a real asset to our team and we look forward to bringing him onboard.”

Commenting on his appointment Jimmy said: “Pierce has developed a solid reputation in Blackburn and Lancashire for quality professional advice and friendly client service. It is this simple ethos that sees the firm grow and makes it a fantastic place to develop professionally.

“The senior team is genuinely inspirational, and the client roster includes many high-profile businesses headed by talented entrepreneurs, so I look forward to getting started in my new role.”

Pierce specialises in business advice, tax, accounts, auditing, payroll and offers wealth advisory services. The firm is still keen to recruit experienced advisors and qualified staff to meet growing demand.

James King continues: “Growth rates of nearby major cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds are among the most impressive in the country – but we’re keen to highlight that employees can also reap the benefits of living and working in the heart of the Northern Powerhouse right here in Blackburn.

“Not only is the cost of living lower, we think the lifestyle opportunities are better and professionals choosing a career with Pierce can be confident that they can cut their teeth on high-profile accountancy and advisory work.

“We would encourage qualified accountants and professionals looking for an exciting career at a friendly firm to get in touch via our website.”
