We’re thrilled to announce that, after more than 30 years of trading, we are still growing and this month we have welcomed an experienced new face to our senior management team.
Nick Parkes, 47, brings almost 30 years of combined knowledge to his new role as our Client Manager, having specialised in many aspects of accountancy, from individual tax returns to large scale audits for both national and international companies. His particular areas of expertise are in agriculture, charities, property trusts, Swiss tax and management buy outs.
A keen sportsman, Nick is a member of Derbyshire CCC and played County League cricket for 30 years before retiring last year. He has also played County League tennis for 10 years and is a season ticket holder at Derby County Football Club.
Having left Derby’s Lees Brook School in 1986, Nick immediately began work as a Trainee Accountant and has since built up a wealth of experience. At his most recent employer he was Relationship Manager, overseeing a large portfolio of clients from the manufacturing, retail, consultancy, restaurant, property investment and agricultural sectors.
Attracted by the opportunity to bring all his accumulated skills to bear on his new role at Shapcotts, Nick sees his initial challenges as acquainting himself with all the clients, getting to know the team and starting to support the firm in further developing the business:
“I’m sure that when we pool our knowledge and experience we’ll be in an excellent position to best advise and guide our clients with their tax planning and business development.” he says. Particularly proud of the strong relationships he built up with his clients at his previous employers, Nick aims to replicate his success in his new role with us.
Welcoming Nick Parkes to Shapcotts, Managing Director Melvin Shapcott said:
“We are thrilled to bring in such a vastly experienced practitioner. Nick’s expertise and client relationship skills will be invaluable to us and we are sure this move will mean that our reputation for excellence, service and comprehensive knowledge will continue to grow.”
