UHY Hacker Young
UHY Hacker Young, the national accountancy group, has appointed Zoe Paradine head of marketing and business development as a Partner in the London office. Zoe, who is also on the UHY Hacker Young UK board and executive committee, has been working with UHY Hacker Young for more than 15 years. She will officially be made a partner of the London firm on 1 November. Zoe recently helped develop UHY Hacker Young’s 2020 Vision and national marketing strategy, which concentrates on the strength of UHY Hacker Young’s sector capabilities, its local knowledge and global reach. This is an achievement she deserves after many years of dedication to our firm and, while it is unusual for senior marketing personnel to be made partner, this is also testimony to the impact Zoe has had at UHY Hacker Young. Her appointment is significant as it recognises that the success of modern accountancy firms is created through their support teams as much as through traditional practice areas.
