THE managing director and owner of one of the region’s longest-established accountancy practices has hailed the appointment of a new senior director as a vital step in the company’s continued growth.

David Fish has joined Peter Weldon & Co, immediately joining Peter Weldon himself and David Hunter as senior board members of the Ashington- based accountancy practice.

Fish, who has spent the previous 13 years at Newcastle accountancy practice RMT, says the opportunity to join Peter Weldon & Co was too tempting to pass up.

The 32-year-old said: “The team at Peter Weldon & Co has been one I had long-respected, so when the chance presented itself to be a part of that, I jumped at it.

“The opportunity to play a key role in helping to shape the expansion and future direction is the one thing that really excites me about this position.

“Already, Peter, David and I have identified a number of ways to help Peter Weldon & Co explore some new prospects.”

Peter Weldon, who formed his accountancy and tax planning practice in Ashington, Northumberland, 22 years ago, said: “This is a tremendously exciting appointment which cements the long-term growth plans of the business.

“David not only brings with him a tremendous depth of experience across the full range of accountancy disciplines, but with it a contemporary and fresh edge that brilliantly compliments the team we have here.”

Since leaving school in 1999 to take up a trainee accountant opportunity with RMT in central Newcastle, David has worked across a number of financial disciplines.

He qualified in AAT and then as a chartered accountant and member of ICAEW. David has, most latterly, specialised in assisting a range of businesses with compiling corporate financing packages for growth.
