WP is excited to announce that Dan Hedges has joined as Finance Manager from February 2012. Dan has a wealth of experience within the finance industry, working at BDO for 10 years where he started off as an apprentice at the age of 16. Dan studied for 8 years completing his AAT followed by the Chartered exams. Dan has focussed primarily on working with local owner managed businesses, assisting them with management and statutory accounts.
When asked about why he decided to join WP Group Dan said “The fact that WP Group is a family-run business played a large part in my decision to join. Having spent the past 10 years working in practice I decided that the time was right for me to make the move into industry and what WP was offering was exactly the kind of role I had been looking for. Throughout the recruitment process it was obvious to me that the company has big intentions and the opportunity to be a part of driving the business forward is one that excites me.”
Lee Tybinkowski, Group Finance Director, commented “Dan is an excellent addition to the team; he has plenty of experience demonstrating he has the skills to help drive the company towards its future goals. We are looking forward to seeing what more Dan can do.”
