She is a senior partner at Menzies Chartered Accountants, a top 20 firm with offices across Surrey, Hampshire, and London. Adams also chairs the Management Committee.

Her current role includes helping the shape the firm’s strategy to meet the evolving needs of clients.

Her role as Relationship Partner ensures the firm continues to deliver high service levels at the best value the firm can offer.

Why did she make the power list?

Adams is number 45 on this year’s power list. Posting total fee income of £40.34m in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Accountancy Firms 2017 rankings, up from £34m in the previous year, under Adam’s leadership Menzies continues to grow. With a big focus on corporate social responsibility and a relatively young team (31% of employees in the 25-31 bracket), the firm proves popular with its clients having achieved a net promoter score of 45, above the industry average of 38.

Can Adams lead the firm to further growth this year?

Menzies

Menzies is a top 20 firm of accountants, finance, and business advisors who operate around the Surrey, Hampshire, and London areas, therefore providing clients with easy access and local knowledge.

The firm has over 400 employees, and an annual turnover of £40m. They were described as the ‘best performing firm outside of the top 10’ by Accountancy Magazine.

Many of Menzies’ clients are currently expanding overseas and so they greatly benefit from the outward perspective that the firm can provide through their membership of HLB International, a leading global network of independent accounting firms and business advisors which spans 130 countries.
