GWA Staff News – Winter 2022/23

We have started 2023 with many new faces joining the GWA team. We are pleased to welcome Bethany Innes, George Opelt and Mark Whitehead to our Accounts department in Berwick and Emma McLean to our Accounts team in Haddington. Ashley Harrison joins us as Marketing Assistant supporting both GWA and Three Counties and will be based at our office in County Durham. We hope all our new starters settle in quickly and are sure they’ll soon feel part of the team.

We are sorry to say goodbye to Brian Simmons who retired from the Accounts department at the end of January, along with Tommy Wilson who will retire from his position in the Tax department at the end of March. We send our best wishes for a long and happy retirement to both.

And, whilst we are on the subject of long service, GWA is celebrating the long service of Paul Weatherhead, from our maintenance support team who celebrated 10 years with GWA this January. Thank you for your loyalty and dedication Paul.

Congratulations are due for Joseph Findlay and Matthew Taylor who are now both qualified Chartered Accountants, as well as David Simpson and Loren Veitch who have qualified as Independent Financial Advisers.

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
