Price Bailey makes four senior manager promotions

Price Bailey has announced four further senior-level promotions this month following the appointment of six new partners last week.

Price Bailey, a top 30 chartered accounting and advisory practice, has promoted four new senior managers., Duncan Crooks in Human Resources, Matt Jones from the Corporate team, Amy Sadler in the Payroll team and Kelly Walton in Compliance. These senior-level appointments follow six partner promotions last week.

These senior promotions help to strengthen Price Bailey’s Management team across its offices, create a solid platform for the firm to realise its plans for growth and support the firm’s vision and ethos for the internal development of team members at all levels.

Commenting on the promotions, Martin Clapson, Managing Director at Price Bailey, said,

“We have four new senior managers from April 2023, which reflects the talent we have and the diversity of the promotions recognises the value of all our specialisms across the firm.  We would like to congratulate them and thank them for their valued contributions.”

Duncan has over thirteen years recruitment experience, during which time he’s developed a particular specialism in accountancy and finance. He has a passion for the sector and joined Price Bailey to develop our recruitment function in December 2021, having previously worked for a number of accountancy practices in the Top 10. He is responsible for developing more inclusive recruitment processes and establishing more entry points for those looking to get into accountancy. Outside of work he is kept busy by his two young children, but does enjoy running and watching rugby when the opportunities present themselves.

Matt began his journey at Price Bailey in 2013 where he joined the City of London office straight from A-Levels. Following qualification in 2017, he did a 6 month secondment to our tax team in order to widen his knowledge and experience before returning to the corporate team. Since then Matt has become a pivotal member of the local management team and looks after a diverse portfolio of clients comprising some of our larger commercial audits. Matt lives with his partner Rosie and can be found regularly in Knole Park walking their dog, Wilma. His main passions are playing golf, watching football and horse racing.
