Peter Weldon, managing director and owner of Peter Weldon & Co, one of the longest established accountants in Newcastle, has described the appointment of a new senior director as a very important step in the accountancy firm’s continued growth.
David Fish, who has worked at Newcastle accountancy practice RMT for the last 13 years, will be immediately joining the board of Peter Weldon & Co as a senior member.
32-year-old David said: “The team at Peter Weldon & Co has been one I had long-respected, so when the chance presented itself to be a part of that, I jumped at it.
“The opportunity to play a key role in helping to shape the expansion and future direction is the one thing that really excites me about this position.
“Already, Peter, David and I have identified a number of ways to help Peter Weldon & Co explore some new prospects.”
Peter Weldon formed his accountancy and tax planning practice 22 years ago in Ashington, Northumberland. He said: “This is a tremendously exciting appointment which cements the long-term growth plans of the business.
“David not only brings with him a tremendous depth of experience across the full range of accountancy disciplines, but with it a contemporary and fresh edge that brilliantly compliments the team we have here.”
David left school in 1999 to start working as a trainee accountant with RMT. He has experience working in a number of financial disciplines.
He is a qualified chartered accountant, AAT and member of ICAEW.
