Suzanne Black (29) joins as an audit and accounts senior. Swindon born and bred, she qualified as a certified chartered accountant four years ago and has moved from another practice to join Haines Watts’ office team in Old Town.

“Everyone at Haines Watts has been so helpful, ensuring I’m settling in well,”  she said. “It’s a very friendly but professional place and I feel confident I’ll be supported as my career develops.”

Outside of the office Suzanne supports the charity Diabetes UK as she’s been a type 1 diabetic since her teenage years. Her husband Dan is a chef.

Ionut Serpie (28) joins as a trainee and is originally from Romania  having moved to the UK to study at university with his wife Mariana. They both recently graduated in Business Accountancy and Economics at Worcester.

“The team here are  great people, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and supportive which I appreciate,” said Ionut.

In his spare time he enjoys running and recently took part in the Cricklade half marathon. His next challenge is to run the London marathon.

Mike Lloyd, managing partner of Haines Watts Swindon, said: “It’s been fantastic for us to be able to bring two talented individuals into our busy team. They’ve both fitted in to our environment well and are helping us to support our own clients efficiently and effectively.”
