AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) this week announced a series of appointments which bolster their account management team in the UK.
Three new account managers have been appointed for various UK regions. Danielle Smith, a Fellow Member of AAT, has joined as regional account manager for the Midlands. Danielle initially qualified as an accountant before moving into the education sector, where she has experience lecturing in accountancy and business. Most recently, Danielle acted as apprenticeship cluster lead for Halesowen College, while she has been shortlisted for the inaugural Women in Accountancy and Finance Awards (in the technician category), results for which will be revealed in May 2020.
Meanwhile, Yvonne Eaves has joined as regional account manager for the London North region. Yvonne joins from City and Guilds where she worked as a business manager, while she has held account management roles at the NCFE – where she specialised in End Point Assessments for apprentices – as well as in recruitment for major High Street firms.
Amy Bishop is the third regional account manager to join; she will hold responsibility for the North West region. Amy has a strong track record in business development and account management within colleges and training providers. Her roles have particularly focussed around identifying opportunities in large organisations across multiple sectors, to support them in utilising their apprenticeship levy to develop their workforce.
Finally, AAT has appointed a new account manager with specific responsibilities for UK-based employers. Marlon Thomas has previous experience engaging employers at both Kaplan Financial and A4E, while he most recently was a partner and sales director at Speech Inspired Employment/First Class Education Solutions.
