Business advisory and accountancy firm Cowgills has appointed Lynne Martland as Head of People to lead the firm on employee development.
Lynne joins from The Original Factory Shop.
Cowgills has offices across Bolton, Manchester and West Yorkshire. This is the first time the firm has appointed a Head of People, and the move comes as part of a push for employee attraction and development.
Lynne said: “The people in the business are its greatest asset and my role will be to ensure we get the best out of everyone and to enable them to thrive and grow in their roles.”
Paul Stansfield, Cowgills managing partner added: “We are absolutely committed to investing in our staff and have made a number of significant senior hires in the last twelve months. We also have an ongoing relationship with The Bolton School through our Future Stars programme which gives pupils an early opportunity to experience life in the workplace. Lynne will be helping to ensure we create the best possible workplace environment for all of our employees and this is an important focus for us as we nurture the future leaders of our business.”
Cowgills has recently undergone a full rebrand, dropping the name Holloway which has been associated with the company for over 35 years.
