Award-winning South West-based chartered accountancy firm Milsted Langdon is celebrating after a number of its team passed professional exams.
Staff at the firm’s Bristol and Taunton offices have passed a range of exams, either bringing them one step closer to qualification or bringing additional credentials for those who are already qualified.
Among those celebrating is Bristol-based Antonia Stokes, who has passed her final exam to become a Chartered Tax Adviser, while Carmelo Lattuca, also based at Bristol, has passed his ACA Financial Management exam through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
Stacey Jest, based at Bristol, and Nick Walpole and Ian Higgins, both from Taunton, have now passed all the papers required before becoming fully qualified accountants, while Rachel Taylor, from Bristol, and Alex Nawrat, Amy Cleavely, Andrew Covey, Chris Mainstone, Jessica Gascoigne, Martin Johnson, Sam Phillips and Szymon Krzyzanowski, all from Taunton, have moved at least one paper closer to achieving qualification.
Sister company Milsted Langdon Financial Services has also seen exam successes, with managing director Steve Horton, who is also a partner in Milsted Langdon, passing his Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) ER1 Equity Release exam, while Jenny Smith has passed the CII’s FA2 Pensions Administration exam.
Jonathan Langdon, chairman and founding partner of Milsted Langdon, said: “We place a great deal of emphasis on staff training and development, viewing it as a valuable investment in the future of our firm. These exam passes demonstrate that our commitment is paying off, as trainees move a step closer to qualification and senior staff continue to develop their own skills and expertise through further study.
“I would like to congratulate everyone on their success. These results can only be achieved through hard work, further demonstrating the commitment of our team here at Milsted Langdon.”
