In addition to her client-facing role, Liz will be responsible for the excellent team within the firm, as well as ensuring that the systems and processes used for the delivery of client services remain seamless and smooth.

Joanne Kingsnorth
joined Seymour Taylor as a trainee in January 2003, coming from a background in the wider financial services industry. Joanne became a Director at Seymour Taylor in 2016. In addition to her client-facing role, Joanne will be responsible for business development, driving Seymour Taylor forward as the accounting industry continues to undergo rapid change with technology.

Award winning firm

Seymour Taylor have previously won a number of awards for their employment and training and have a strong track record of growing their team from within.  They have  strong company Values – Support, Expertise and Understanding, which were developed jointly by the internal team and their clients. Using these core values, the business firmly believes in encouraging its staff to progress and in providing a friendly and supportive working environment. The values are at the heart of the firm’s culture from training and development to business decision making.  The new Joint Managing Director roles will ensure the continued success of the accountancy firm and the development of the next stage of Seymour Taylor’s business growth.
