James Keeton has joined us as Partner!
By Jim Lewis Posted 6 September 2018
We are delighted to announce the appointment of James Keeton as Partner, who will primarily be based across our Somerset offices in Taunton and Glastonbury.
James brings with him extensive accountancy experience, having spent over 20 years at some of the UK’s most reputable firms including Deloitte and BDO, as well as leading financial transformation and change management for a number of dynamic businesses across the manufacturing, hospitality, and leisure and tourism sectors.
It was our vision and growth that attracted him to join us. He told our partner Jim Lewis, “MHA Monahans is an ambitious firm with the opportunity and ability to service a growing number of clients in the region, as shown by their acquisitions over the last two years. Somerset is a particularly exciting place to be as there is lots of potential, especially around Taunton and Glastonbury. SME businesses are the backbone of the economy and there are hidden gems and businesses with promise in the region.
“I always planned to return to practice after spending time in industry; during which my experience grew and I learnt as an accountant and auditor. The three years I spent helping a variety of businesses developing effective reporting structures, undertaking culture and process change, and making profitability improvements has made me a more developed and empathetic accountant and more aware of the real world of business.”
These are definitely values and an approach to business that we feel strongly about. Somerset has a vibrant economy and we are proud to have two offices here and to work with some of the best businesses in the county.
