We’re excited to announce that we’ve just launched our own Thomas Westcott Corporate Finance Service and have appointed experienced Alison Watts to head the new team.

Alison joins us as Director of Corporate Finance after spending 20 years successfully building a team and similar service offering at a firm of accountants in the North of England.

Whilst we are nationally-recognised as one of the UK’s leading mid-tier accountancy and business advisory practices, until now we have not been able to offer a specialist corporate finance offering.

Alison, who grew up in the South West before work commitments eventually took her to the north of England, has spent the last 20 years working with directors and business owners advising on everything from start-ups and expansion plans through to, ultimately, their exit strategies. 

It has been Alison’s long-term plans to move back to the Westcountry, so her appointment at Thomas Westcott gave her the perfect opportunity to fulfil that ambition whilst taking up a new challenge.

Alison’s appointment represents a significant milestone for our firm as it means we now offer a full lifecycle of services to clients, from start-up and formation stage right through to eventual exit and everything in between – ensuring we are there by our clients’ side whenever they need us.

Alison, who also has experience working for “Big Four” accountancy firm EY, will officially join us in December and we will all welcome her warmly to the firm.
