A leading North Lincolnshire accountancy firm has strengthened its management team by appointing a long-serving employee as equity partner.
Gary Makinson joined RNS Chartered Accountants 16 years ago.
Specialising in small and medium sized owner managed businesses, particularly within the transport and agriculture sectors, he is based at the Brigg office of RNS.
He said: “I am proud to have worked my way up to equity partner.
“I’ve worked in practice since the age of 18 but did not have the chance to train as a chartered accountant until I joined RNS at 26.
“I’ll always be grateful for that opportunity. I could not have done this without the support of my colleagues and clients.
“I’m looking forward to working with the other partners and continuing to ensure RNS is a place for employees to flourish and for clients to enjoy the very best service.”
Born in Doncaster, Gary grew up in the nearby mining village of Bircotes, near Bawtry. He joined a small accountancy business in Worksop upon leaving sixth form college and gained his Association of Accounting Technicians qualification.
He moved to Scunthorpe in 2002 and joined Coleman & Co and, when it merged with RNS, he studied to become a chartered accountant, qualifying in 2011.
Married to Kerry, they have two children.
Senior partner John Heeney said: “We’re pleased to appoint Gary as an equity partner. He’s a well-known and trusted face among our clients.
“The move further strengthens our eight-strong equity partner team and continues our strategy of developing individuals and promoting them through the practice.
“We look forward to Gary helping us to grow the business still further in the future.”
RNS has a third office in Barton.
