Accountancy firm Old Mill has announced two new partners, both from the firm’s compliance team.

Chartered accountant Jamie Rudge and Duncan Parkes, who is compliance director, have both been promoted to technical partner.

Their promotions bring the total number of partners to 25, and the number of new partners since the firm’s restructure to seven.

Jon Orchard, Julia Banwell, and Stephen Martin were all promoted in December, while David Gage was appointed head of VAT and partner in October, and Amanda Browning became the firm’s new head of wealth management and partner last month.

Rudge said: “I am excited to join the partner group at what is a very exciting time in both the accountancy profession, and Old Mill’s growth.  There’s lots of upcoming change in the accountancy world, and I’m keen to help shape Old Mill’s future and embrace these opportunities.”

Parkes said: “To become a partner in Old Mill at such an exciting time in the evolution of the financial planning profession is something I am very proud of.  The opportunities that exist for Old Mill in the financial planning space are huge and to be able to help shape our future is very exciting.”

To become a Partner, candidates have to meet a number of key criteria, including embodying and acting as a champion for the Old Mill values and behaviours, bringing ambition, energy and integrity to their own roles, helping create an environment where everyone feels part of a thriving business.

Kevin Whitmarsh, CEO of Old Mill, said: “Jamie and Duncan are both exceptional at what they do, not only keeping us in line with our respective regulatory bodies but also helping with technical training and helping shape the business strategically to the highest standards. Their hard work and commitment to quality are shown by the impact they have made on the work we do with our clients, our colleagues, and the communities in which we operate. They both demonstrate our firm’s values by delivering an ongoing commitment to ensuring all the work we are excited to see more from them both in their new roles as partner.”
