Accountants Mercer & Hole has strengthened its Audit team with the appointment of Senior Audit Manager Sarah Barnes. Sarah joined the firm on 1 November from PwC where she was an audit manager.
Sarah brings to Mercer & Hole considerable expertise and experience in advising large, international businesses together with owner-managed businesses on all aspects of their accounts and audit requirements. She has a strong track record and client following in the manufacturing and retail sectors.
Commenting on her appointment, Sarah said: “Mercer & Hole is recognised as one of the region’s leading accountancy firms. It is a terrific audit team and a fantastic client base, and I am looking forward to developing my career further with my new colleagues.
“My passion is advising business owners through the complexities of their accounts preparation, financial reporting, and audit. Having access to the right financial information is key part of running and building a successful business and the annual audit is often a perfect opportunity for business owners to take stock and plan for the year ahead.”

She has a terrific track record in advising both very large and smaller owner-managed businesses on their financial reporting. She is a valuable addition to our growing audit team and we look forward to the contributions she will bring.”
