Stead said: “Nilesh joins Cowgills at a time of unprecedented growth for the company and will be instrumental in developing our audit function. He has a strong track record of supporting businesses nationally and his experience in providing audit services and strategic advice to clients is second to none. He’s a great addition to the team.”

Cowgills is a top chartered accountants and business advisory firm in the North West of England, and this year placed 54th in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 ranking.

It provides a range of services in audit, tax, business advisory, and accountancy to SME clients across the North West of the country, from its offices based in Bolton and Manchester.

It reports recent rapid growth and, as a result, is looking to expand its team across the firm.

Modhvadia said: “I’m delighted to be joining Cowgills at such an exciting time and working with many of the superb local businesses they support. The company has a strong reputation in the North West with clear plans for growth and development and it’s great to be part of the team.”
