Accountancy firm Clive Owen & Co has appointed Simon Young as a partner at its York office.
Young will be working alongside Terry Doyle, the partner at the firm who was instrumental in setting up the York office 18 years ago.
Doyle said: "We are delighted to welcome Simon to the firm. He has that wonderful combination of technical ability and expertise together with an appetite for commercial success and a positive outlook.
"This is the right development for us and it has come at the right time. I am looking forward to working with Simon and continuing to develop our practice."
Young added: "While I’m an accountant and deal with figures, I really feel I’m there to look after clients. I like the philosophy of this firm and I am keen to be part of their future success. I am pleased to be on board."
