Louise McCann, who works at the Darlington office, joined the chartered accountants and business advisers in 2006 and qualified as a chartered accountant three years later. She is part of the audit team, supporting manager Kathryn Bradley with a number of charities, academies and more.
Lizzie Thomson, meanwhile, is based at the Durham office and has been with Clive Owen for six years.
She is a qualified chartered accountant and chartered tax accountant.
Simon Hook, a partner with the business, said: “We’re delighted to recognise the work and commitment that Louise and Lizzie have demonstrated. They are both valuable members of the team and becoming more involved in key aspects of our business.
“In particular, it’s always encouraging to see people in the team progress, especially when they joined as a trainee”.
Thomson said: “As a trainee I knew the firm had the opportunities to help me develop a range of skills and I’m so pleased to have been rewarded with this promotion.”
