It’s a much talked about fact that the role of accountants is evolving, with much more emphasis on client relationships and a rise in advisory and guidance work complementing the more ‘traditional’ compliance work.
But what does this really mean for accountancy professionals and how can this shifting focus actually be embraced?
Very well placed to discuss this evolution with us on our latest Inside Accountancy Podcast is Natasha Frangos, Partner at haysmacintyre and member of the firm’s Management Board.
Frangos trained and qualified with haysmacintyre and has been a partner since 2009, and now heads up its Creative, Media and Technology team. Her clients include design, fashion, retail, media agency, e-commerce and technology businesses, and she often acts for the individuals behind these businesses as well.
Natasha will often act for a company from its early stages, through to growth and expansion, during a transaction and remain involved in the company beyond that event. She prides herself on developing long lasting client relationships, often acting as a sounding board for her clients across a range of commercial and financial issues, delivering a personal and high value service in the process.
In this podcast we discuss:
- The route Frangos has taken to get where she is today
- How haysmacintyre has provided support throughout this journey
- How the role of accountants is evolving from her perspective
- The differences in specific verticals, specifically in the creative, media and technology space

- The development of long-lasting client relationships and secrets behind building them
- How haysmacintyre’s service will develop in 2020 and beyond to ensure the firm stays ahead of the curve.
