Godfrey Wilson announces two Director promotions to underpin recent growth

We are really excited to announce the promotion of two new directors to support the firm’s continued growth.

Guy Blake has been promoted to Audit Director and will join Alison Godfrey in leading the Audit and Assurance team at Godfrey Wilson. Guy has spent over 10 years with the firm, building a reputation as an expert in charity accounting and tax. He will be managing a varied portfolio of charity clients, overseeing the audit process and advising on issues such as reserves policies, SORP, trading subsidiaries, VAT and corporation tax reliefs. He works with a wide range of charities, but has particular expertise in creative/arts charities and grant-making trusts.

Josh Turner has been appointed as Accounts Director and will lead the accounting and bookkeeping team, alongside Rob Wilson. Josh joined the firm in 2016 and has been instrumental in the growth of the firm’s outsourced business services. He will be working with a varied portfolio of charity and commercial clients, overseeing end-to-end accounting solutions.

Alison Godfrey, Senior Director at Godfrey Wilson, says “We have enjoyed a sustained period of growth in recent years and are delighted to welcome Guy and Josh to bolster the Senior Leadership Team. We are passionate about investing in our staff and providing them with the tools, experience and opportunities to progress their careers. Both Guy and Josh joined the firm as trainee chartered accountants which is testament to this. It is an exciting time – at the end of 2023 we were ranked as one of the UK’s leading charity audit firms. Rob and I look forward to working with Guy and Josh to build on our success in 2024!”
