PM+M team: New arrivals & leavers

The past few weeks have seen a flurry of comings and goings at PM+M.

There has been several new arrivals whilst the company also said a fond farewell to a couple of its longest serving team members.

The marketing team has been boosted with the arrival of Faye Hughes as marketing and business development manager and Daniel Hill as marketing and sales assistant.

Tim Farragher’s appointment as a paraplanner has bolstered the wealth management offering and the tax team has been strengthened with the addition of Laura Fort as a trainee.

Kirsty Wright has recently taken up the position of office manager; her role will be quite wide ranging and will encompass managing our HR, reception and secretarial functions.

And the Run My Business team will be augmented with the appointment of Luke Irving as accounts trainee and Lorna Hargreaves as accounts assistant.

However, PM+M also recently said goodbye to two of its longest serving team members. Between them Barbara Porter and Lorraine Cade have provided PM+M with almost 80 years of service.

Barbara Porter said: "I have been with PM+M for 40 years and eight months. I liked the idea of working for the best firm of accountants in the area, also the clients and mix of work I have had the opportunity to work with and on.

"I'll miss the people and feeling that that I may have made a contribution, however small, in helping a client. But I won't miss getting up so early. Instead I will be relaxing, reading, painting, cooking and walking."

Lorraine Cade said: "When I leave I will have been here 39 years one month and 19 and a half days. I will miss the camaraderie the most. I’ve met a lot of people at PM+M over the years and regrettably many of them I have forgotten. However, there are quite a few who I am still in contact with and hopefully this will continue in the coming years.

"I now plan to spend my time playing the piano again. Also, I’ve been a member of the WI for many years and now I hope to take a more active role in the coming years. Finally, having two grandchildren will obviously take up quite a bit of my time as well." Jane Parry, HR partner, added: "Lorraine and Barbara have both played a huge role in making PM+M what it is today and we would like to wish them both a long and very happy retirement. They most certainly deserve it!"
