By Nick Batten on 23 November, 2021

MHA Monahans, a leading independent accountancy firm based in the South West, has welcomed two new hires to its Taunton team as it ramps up plans for growth.

Chris Clark joins as Senior Client Portfolio Manager. Prior to MHA Monahans, Chris worked with several well-known local firms delivering accounting and tax compliance services as well as more advisory work. He was also instrumental in the creation of new, successful specialist sector divisions in previous firms.

Chris will work closely with other senior members of the team to drive sustainable growth as the business continues to recruit key people to service its longstanding and varied client list. He will also assist the company in continuing to build its various specialisms, including its growing medical division, while maintaining a strong presence in varied business sectors.

On his new role, Chris commented, “This is an extremely exciting time to be joining the MHA Monahans team. After an incredibly successful 2021, the business has a vision for the future which I am proud to be part of. Next year and beyond holds a huge amount of opportunity for MHA Monahans and the Taunton office is set to thrive.”

Alongside Chris, Jessica Mathieson joins the company as Assistant Client Portfolio Manager. Having carried out her accountancy training with a well-known local firm, Jess holds nearly a decade of experience within the medical accounts specialism as well as numerous other business sectors.

After finishing her ACCA qualification six months ago, the move to MHA Monahans marks a significant personal progression for Jess as she looks to take on more responsibility in her new role. As well as being integrated into the day-to-day client relationship and account management, Jess will also work closely with the team to drive growth in all of its service offerings.

Fiona Westwood, Partner for the Taunton and Glastonbury offices, added, “I am delighted to welcome both Chris and Jess to the team. Between them, they have a wealth of experience and will be valuable assets not only to the Taunton office and our local clients, but to MHA Monahans as a whole.

“The outlook for the next 12 months for MHA Monahans is extremely positive, and by bringing Chris and Jess onboard more exciting plans have been set into motion. I look forward to working with them both.”
