Bernadette joined haysmacintyre's Audit department in 1995 and became a Partner in 2006.
Having advised clients from the financial services sector since 1998, Bernadette now heads up our Financial Services team. Her portfolio of clients covers a variety of corporate sectors such as property, manufacturing and marketing, but her focus is on those within financial services. Here she advises a range of clients including private equity and hedge fund managers, intermediary brokers, corporate financiers and remuneration advisers. Bernadette is also responsible for ensuring the team is kept technically up to date and for maintaining and developing relationships with other key service providers within the sector such as compliance firms and lawyers. She is a member of the ICAEW’s FS Faculty, 100 Women in Hedge Funds and AIMA.
Bernadette has extensive experience of working with early stage businesses right through to exit across a range of areas including audit and assurance, tax compliance and planning, remuneration planning and GABRIEL reporting. She is committed to her clients and strongly believes in building close working relationships and good lines of communication should any queries or issues arise.
In addition to her work in the financial service sector, Bernadette heads up our Audit department and is responsible for managing a department of 110 plus. This requires a good head for organisation, a skill she also puts to good use when liaising with her clients to ensure matters are dealt with quickly and effectively. We are the current British Accountancy Awards Audit Team of the Year.
