Citroen Wells Appoints a Technical Manager
GGI member firm Citroen Wells is pleased to announce that it has recruited Paul Cooper as its dedicated technical manager. The firm has created this role due to recent expansion, and Paul’s appointment will enable partners to focus more exclusively on client work and relationships.
Paul assists the partners with compliance and training work, as well as client specific technical matters on financial reporting and auditing. His work includes file reviews that provide feedback to audit teams, as well as advice on the practical implementation of UK accounting practice following its extensive revision in 2015. Building on previous training experience, Paul’s remit is also to supplement Continuing Professional Development and student courses with training sessions for partners and all levels of staff which are specific to the firm’s client work.
A member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Paul trained with a medium-sized firm and then moved on to smaller firms, where he took responsibility for audit compliance as regulation became underpinned by statute. He has also conducted regulatory visits to Chartered Accountancy practices, covering both audit and incidental investment business work. For several years, he ran the technical and compliance function in a firm of Chartered Accountants in Central London.
In addition to UK accounting practice, Paul has gained experience of international standards in more recent roles as Corporate Reporting Manager for an accountancy body, and in the technical department of a top-10 UK accountancy practice.
Paul is pleased to bring his vast experience to this wide-ranging role at Citroen Wells, and to be actively involved in helping the firm to innovate, whilst maintaining its standards compliantly and efficiently. This should have an immediate and positive effect on the firm when dealing with clients in the UK and around the world.
