Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



As part of its ongoing growth strategy, local accountancy practice Page Kirk LLP has announced the promotion of two key members of staff.


The successful firm, based in Gregory Boulevard, has appointed Rachael Cobb as Manager of Accounts and her colleague, Jonathan Newman, as Senior Manager. Both have risen to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, going above and beyond their roles and demonstrating both technical and professional excellence.

Rachael joined the firm at the start of 2019 as Assistant Manager. Since then, her diligence and industry-specific knowledge has helped her quickly progress, while she has headed up a team of medical-specific Accountants. Rachael specialises in SMEs and has had various experience in other sectors such as academies. She helps clients create efficiencies and supports their accounting function. As Manager of Accounts, she will be implementing innovative new ways of working, continually adapting to the firm’s development and new business opportunities.

Rachael commented:

“I’m incredibly pleased my work has been recognised by the Partners. It is fantastic to be part of such a forward thinking, growing and well-established firm with an excellent reputation across the region. At Page Kirk there is clearly plenty of room for driven individuals to make a significant impact, and new ideas are always encouraged. I plan to continue delivering high-quality services to clients, increasing our understanding of their industries and helping them make the best business decisions possible.”

Long-standing team member Jonathan Newman joined Page Kirk back in 2005 on the firm’s graduate scheme, after gaining his degree from the University of Bristol. Since qualifying as a chartered accountant in 2008, he has grown and developed, building his team and an impressive client portfolio in the Audit Department. Jonathan is also Page Kirk’s in-house Training Manager, mentoring, supporting and empowering staff members who are in the process of gaining their accountancy and tax qualifications.

Jonathan commented:

“Having started with the firm as a trainee, it is very rewarding to work with so many fantastic businesses as well as mentor and guide our current trainees. I am delighted to be accepting this promotion and I intend to continue serving our clients and inspiring the next generation of Page Kirk team members.”

John Wallis, Senior Partner commented:

“I am immensely proud of Rachael and Jonathan for going out of their way to continually improve their own industry-specific knowledge, maintaining excellent client relationships, and instilling confidence in less experienced members of staff. It is their willingness to learn about new practices and industries, whilst leading and supporting others, that makes these two so valuable.”
