It’s the beginning of a new era for a 100-year-old accountancy firm with staff promotions.

Stephenson Smart in King’s Lynn has appointed long-serving partner Mike Andrews to the role of managing partner following the retirement of company stalwart Clive Dodds.

Dan Jastrzebski, 32, has been made partner, while Jenna Noble, James Taylor and Michael Clunan have been promoted to managers.

Managing partner Mr Andrews joined Stephenson Smart, which has four offices in the county and two in Cambridgeshire, as a trainee in 1991 and made partner 21 years ago.

He is responsible for the firm’s audit compliance and practice assurance matters and specialises in audit, corporate structuring and taxation.

He is also director of Lynn’s Festival Too and a co-opted governor at the College of West Anglia.

He said: “The firm is in the best place I could hope for and all credit to Clive for leaving us in such a strong position. 

“The plan now is to continue its growth. In the last few years we have expanded more than three times in size and there are lots of opportunities to move forward even further.”
