A trio of accountants at Hull-based Smailes Goldie Group are celebrating after they were promoted to manager.

Laura Clarke, Billy Cowell and Matthew Clayphan have been promoted to become managers within the firm’s Accounts and Audit department.

Laura joined Smailes Goldie Group in 2016 as a Supervisor, having trained with another local firm and having gained a first class degree in Accounting from the University of Hull. Matthew also holds a first class degree in Accounting from the University of Hull, joining Smailes Goldie Group as a Trainee upon his graduation in 2012.
