New Partner appointed to new Gatwick office

South Coast and Gatwick-based chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers, Carpenter Box, has appointed Tony Summers as Audit Partner to help grow and develop its new Gatwick office.

Tony was appointed on 1 May and has over 20 years’ accounting and advisory experience dealing with a wide range of businesses from small start-ups to large corporates, both listed and private. He has particular specialist experience in owner-managed businesses and those with venture capital backing in a number of sectors including technology, manufacturing, software, transport and logistics and recruitment consultants.

Tony commented: “I am delighted to be appointed Audit Partner in a firm with such an excellent reputation as Carpenter Box. The company was recently crowned ‘Professional Services Firm of the Year’ in the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2015, so I do have a lot to live up to!

“The appointment is an exciting opportunity for me, as Carpenter Box has an ambitious strategy for growth in the Gatwick area and offers a very distinct value proposition for businesses in the region. The firm has an experienced client focussed team providing high quality service and outstanding value for money.”

Carpenter Box has grown to become a real force in Sussex and the South. With a headcount of over 120, including 12 partners, it is one of the largest business advisory firms in the region. It is also a founding member of MHA, a national association of leading independent accountants, giving Carpenter Box the ability to provide larger clients with accounting and audit solutions across the UK. The firm is also an independent member of Baker Tilly International, which provides client access to a global network of trusted advisors for businesses looking to trade globally.

Outside of work, Tony is a keen Brentford FC supporter and attempts to keep fit playing tennis as and when time allows. He also enjoys relaxing with his wife and two children at their home in Crawley Down.
