Cloud accounting professional Becki Roberts has been promoted to senior manager at UHY Hacker Young and will also lead the firm’s UK-wide cloud accounting team from the group’s Nottingham office.
In her new role, Becki – who joined UHY Nottingham in 2018 – will co-ordinate the team across the firm’s 19 offices and head up delivery of the group’s digital change programme, which regularly meets, both virtually and face to face, to enable national sharing of information.
Becki comments: “I joined UHY as I wanted to help drive the firm’s cloud-based offering forward, so being promoted to head of the National Cloud Group is a special moment in my career. Cloud-based accounting is a really exciting part of what UHY offers currently and it’s a real opportunity for us to help clients improve business efficiency and performance.
“More companies are starting to use the cloud and we’ve certainly seen an increase in interest from clients during the UK-wide lockdown, with thousands of businesses across the region being forced to work from home. Now, more than ever, it’s vital for clients to have up to date information and being able to access this remotely is a real gamechanger.
“There’s so much uncertainty at the moment so being able to see finances in real time is important when it comes to making pivotal decisions.”
