A new accounts director is among a trio of staff to join the expanding team at Swindon-based Optimum Jon Lacey, Michael Blaken, Richard Mathews or Optimum Professional ServicesProfessional Services.

Accountant Michael Blaken is now with Optimum’s accountancy division, supporting the team with its fast-growing client base. Mandy Gibson has also come on board as tax supervisor.

Optimum’s legal team, who specialise in property law, wills and probate, are also expanding, with the recent addition of Karen Gleed as conveyancing assistant.

Michael, who had been working with a Stroud-based accountancy practice for the last seven years, said: “I really like the idea of working with a firm that offers such a broad range of professional services. If we are working with clients who already trust and know us, it is better for them to be able to access other services we offer rather then send them elsewhere where they may not get such a high quality service.”

Optimum Professional Services, based at Windmill Hill, West Swindon, is a ground-breaking type of firm, which offers a range of services under one roof and is aimed at individuals and businesses alike. As the company grows, there are plans to add to the portfolio of accountancy and legal services. Recently, it took over the accountancy practice Reeves & Co.

Richard Mathews, CEO of Optimum, said Michael, Karen and Mandy were a great addition to the team.

“Both the legal and accountancy sides of the business are growing, and our clients are enjoying the fact that they can get a range of services from the same company,” he said. “We are expanding our team as our client base grows, but at the same time ensuring we offer a quality service across the board.”
