Graham Gordon to take Moore and Smalley helm

A NEW MANAGING PARTNER is to take the reins at Top 60 firm Moore and Smalley.

Graham Gordon, who has served as a partner at the north-east/east-Midlands firm since 2000, has been elected to take over the role from David Ingram in October.

Ingram has overseen a £3m fee revenue increase, to £11m, since holding the role from 2008. He will return to a full time client advisory position. His spell as managing partner included mergers with Lancaster and Kendal firm Lonsdale & Partners, and Nottingham firm Dean Burrows Stevenson.

The firm is ranked 53 in the 2013 Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Survey.

Married father-of-three Gordon joined the firm in 1996, having previously served with two regional firms.

Adrienne Collinge, Moore and Smalley HR partner, said: “It was a carefully considered selection process and Graham impressed the review board with how he aims to take the firm forward into its next phase of development.”

Graham Gordon said: “Under David’s leadership, the firm has grown into new territories, launched new services and continued the great Moore and Smalley tradition of putting the client and our people at the heart of everything we do.

“I am proud to be given the opportunity to continue this great work and my first priority is to make sure every member of this firm has an opportunity to contribute to the vision for Moore and Smalley.”

A further change to Moore and Smalley’s management team sees partner Christine Wilson take up the role of finance partner, working alongside Adrienne Collinge, James Treadwell and Danny Houghton, who direct HR, IT and business development policy, respectively.
