A UK top ten accountancy and advisory firm has promoted 65 people across the south including head roles within the company. 

Azets, which has branches in Poole and Blandford, has made the mid-year promotions across all levels in the south region out of a total 119 across the UK. 

The promotions have included seven new partners in the region while Sajid Ghufoor has been appointed director of tax investigations at the firm. 

Nick Parrett, regional managing director – south at Azets, said: “This bumper crop of mid-year promotions reflects the breadth and depth of the expertise and enthusiasm that our smart talented colleagues across the region bring to work every single day.

“This is an opportunity to recognise the strength of talent and diversity we have across the firm and it’s a pleasure to see how those being promoted have already embraced their new roles."

Azets specialises in supporting the needs of ambitious entrepreneurial, mid-market, owner managed and family-owned businesses. 

The south has seen the largest amount of promotions across the UK with Poole's Daniel Keets promoted to manager while his colleague, Jacob Cardus, has taken the assistant manager role.
