Haines Watts Bristol appoints Andrew Jordan as partner

The managing director of Bristol accountancy firm Haines Watts has hailed the appointment of Andrew Jordan as partner as a pivotal moment for the business.

Under the leadership of Matthew Bracher, staff numbers as Haines Watts Bristol have grown from 20 to 60 in the past five years, with turnover rising threefold in the same period.

Now Haines Watts has appointed Andrew Jordan as a director at the firm, to offer support in developing the business towards further, similar growth over the next five years.

“The appointment of Andrew provides us with the ability to continue our growth at a pivotal moment for our business,” said Mr Bracher. “His synergy with my vision and ambition was apparent from the start. We are both now focussed on taking the business forward and working with our clients in an empathetic way.

“We now have the opportunity to continue developing our role of providing accountancy, tax and advice to business owners in our unique way – by valuing the relationships we have with our clients, by really caring about what is affecting them and by listening and giving honest feedback. That is why our clients trust us. Andrew fits into this model perfectly.”

Mr Jordan’s previous role was as general practice partner in the Bristol office of regional firm Milsted Langdon, where he worked closely with a range of owner managed businesses.

“When Matt approached me with the offer and the vision, it was clearly an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” he said. “Having heard good things about the firm for some time, it is great to see the way it values client relationships, alongside the emphasis on passion and authenticity from a diverse team.

“There’s been a real acceleration of change in the accountancy profession, over the past five years in particular. I’m looking forward to nurturing the necessary skillset across all levels of my new team.

“Following almost 20 years of working in the business community around Bristol, I am looking forward to working with Matt and the team to continue the growth of the firm in the city and the region. I am excited to bring my skills and experience to build on what I have already seen here.”

Mr Bracher said Haines Watts Bristol has started to carve out a niche in the city, as an accountancy firm which specialises in close working relationships with business owners.

“We are looking to work in synergy with owner managed businesses, in a friendly, approachable and trustworthy manner,” he said.

“At its best, accountancy is a business function which works in partnership with its clients, offering constructive support rather than just occasional services. That’s what’s always differentiated us from our competitors and we want that to be our hallmark.”
