Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



The Nottingham office of national accountancy UHY Hacker Young has promoted Becki Roberts and Chris McKain to director positions, as part of the office’s continuing growth and development of its audits and accounts services.

Becki Roberts joined the firm in July 2018 and, as head of the UHY National Cloud Group, she specialises in cloud-based accounting. Working with a wide range of owner-managed and family businesses, Becki predominantly helps clients achieve their business goals by providing compliance & advisory services.

Becki said:

“My first five years at UHY has been a fantastic period of personal development as I’ve grown in managing a portfolio of statutory and management accounts - ensuring that client finances continue to move in a prosperous direction and helping them achieve their business goals.

“Cloud accounting has become invaluable in helping clients to streamline the accounting process and advise in real time, which continues to enable us to be more forward thinking with respect to client needs and relationship development.

“The Nottingham accounts team has tripled in size and I’m particularly proud to represent a growing team of female leaders in the office. In my new position I am looking forward to helping more owner-managed businesses attain maximum value in their growth periods, as well as holding an advisory position for my established client base.”

Chris McKain has been promoted to director from senior audit manager, previously training at MHA and working at Grant Thornton prior to joining UHY twelve years ago.

Chris has led in a hands-on audit compliance and advisory role to clients including owner managed businesses across the manufacturing and construction sectors. He’s also had a significant involvement with third sector and sport and leisure organisations supporting national governing bodies such as Commonwealth Games England and Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby, among others.

He said:

“I will be transitioning from my day-to-day audit activities to leading, overseeing and reviewing the audits of our clients, as well as becoming more involved with large value projects across UHY’s global offices. I have attained some rewarding experience working with and advising large multinational corporations with operations across the United States and China. I am eager to continue building my expertise with both East Midlands owner-managed businesses and international clients.”

Andrew Timms, managing partner at the Nottingham office of UHY Hacker Young, said:

"Becki and Chris have made tremendous contributions to the success of the Nottingham office and their promotions to directors are a testament to the exceeding standards they continue to set for accounts and audits respectively.

“With internal growth, segregation of business functions and retirements leading to these director positions becoming available, we have every confidence that Becki and Chris will play vital roles in ensuring that the Nottingham office meets its ambitious growth plans.”
