Saffreys solves Harrogate crisis
A new lead partner has been apppointed at the crisis-struck Harrogate office of Saffrey Champness.
Alison Robinson takes over at the Yorkshire office after two other partners were forced to leave.
She takes the reins from interim manager Stephen Collins who had been parachuted in to run the office after the removal of Keith Watson and Julia Rangecroft.
Saffreys, accountants to the landed gentry, has had to deal with crisis not only in Harrogate but also at its Guernsey office which recently lost all its four partners who left to start a new business. Replacements have since been put in place.
Clive Nicholson, managing partner, said: ‘We are delighted to be appointing someone of Alison Robinson’s experience to head up our Harrogate office.’
Robinson first joined Saffrey in 1992 and became a partner in 1994. She rejoins the firm after two years away.
