Accountancy firm appoints business development manager

By Anita Jaynes on 4 October, 2017

Monahans has appointed Sinead O’Connor as business development manager in a new role to bolster the Chartered Accountancy firm’s marketing team.

With an expansion of approximately 40% over the past two years, Monahans has seen its reach grow further into the South West with acquisitions across Bath, Wiltshire and Somerset.

Sinead joins Monahans from Watts, a property and construction consultancy, where she was marketing manager responsible for supporting the growth of the business through developing and implementing their nationwide marketing strategy and overseeing a brand refresh.

Previously she was at interior design firm, Harmsen Tilney Shane for 15 years overseeing the marketing for the company as it grew into a British Council for Offices (BCO) award-winning consultancy.

In her new role she will be focusing on business development and strategically adding direction and focus for each of Monahans’ eight offices’ internal business development teams.

Sinead said: “This is an exciting new direction, new challenge and new industry for me, although I have worked within professional services for a number of years.

“I was impressed by the ambitious nature of Monahans, yet they retained a true family feel and ethos. As a business, they have clear direction and strong vision, and are investing to secure this future, while not losing sight of where they came from and the clients they support. There are already a lot of good things happening and excellent people here that I’m very pleased to join”

Simon Tombs Managing Partner added: “Through our partnership with the MHA we have excellent national and international reach and specialisms, which have proved to be very beneficial to our clients here in the South West.  Sinead’s experience will be invaluable to continuing to drive our business development teams forward and securing Monahans’ position as a leading regional firm.
