THE sales and marketing director of a booming company has been promoted to managing director.

Accordance Technical Services Ltd is an international VAT compliance and consultancy practice based in Mocatta House, Trafalgar Place.

Lucy Franklin is promoted after a long period of sustained annual growth for the 120-staff strong organisation. In the final quarter of 2018, Accordance VAT opened in Amsterdam as well and there are future expansion plans in the UK and the Netherlands.

Lucy has been with the company for six years.

She said: “Accordance has a rich and unique workforce – the multinational talent we boast is what sets us apart.

“One of the fundamental aspects of my role will be to harness and empower the skills of our people at every level, so that they in turn can excel for our clients.

Chairman Nicholas Hallam said: “With Brexit unresolved, there is clearly a great deal of uncertainty for businesses trading in the EU. Lucy is the perfect MD for Accordance.”
