We regularly advise clients who are looking to expand their businesses, but on this occasion RfM is putting its own expertise into practice. The seventh RfM office in the North West opens today in Windermere in the Lake District and our experienced team have lots to offer the vibrant local business community.
RfM South Lakes is part of RfM Lancaster Limited which has its main office in Morecambe. The practice is located on Church Street, Windermere in the office formerly operating as Lakes Accountancy; perfectly placed for businesses trading in and around the picturesque lakeside town.
RfM Lancaster Limited also has plenty of experience providing accounting and business services to the hospitality sector, which it will now bring to the many businesses that serve the vibrant tourist trade.
Clients of the new practice will also benefit from the many years’ experience of Partners Peter Armer and Rachel Brownsmith.
Peter Armer originally trained in private practice before moving into industry, where he honed his skills as a Chartered Management Accountant. In a series of senior, board-level roles (Director of Finance and IT at European Metal Recycling, Director of Finance and Estates at the University of Cumbria, Director of Supply with BAE Systems), he gained a deep understanding of the financial and strategic needs of business. If you have any questions regarding business change, business process re-engineering, strategic planning or acquisitions and mergers, Peter is your man.
Rachel Brownsmith developed her skills and qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant whilst working for a global fire protection business for 14 years. Her career journey saw her reach the challenging position of Financial Planning and Analysis Accountant, and Rachel has an expert understanding of the financial issues that affect global businesses. Rachel left industry to return to practice in 2013. She brings meticulous attention to detail, a hands-on, can-do attitude and exceptional standards of client service to RfM Lancaster’s three offices.
To help us get to know more of our Lakeland neighbours, we will be exhibiting at the Westmorland Show for the first time this year. We will also have a stand at the Castle Green Hotel, Kendal in October. Come along to meet us at either event and find out how we can help your business.
Closer to home, we’ll be hosting a champagne and canapé reception at the Church Street office to meet local businesses and clients. We’ll let you know the details soon.
