Black Country chartered accountancy firm Griffiths and Pegg has appointed Rachel Clarke FCCA as a partner.
Ms Clarke, aged 44, joined Griffiths and Pegg in 1985 after attending King Edward VI College in Stourbridge.
After initially qualifying as an Accounting Technician, she continued her training with the firm and became ACCA qualified in 1998.

She will be extending this role in a partner capacity with the help of Rachel Fellows, a new senior qualified ACCA assistant.
Ms Clarke said: “This is an exciting time for me and for the firm as we continue to grow in these challenging economic times. I look forward to assisting the firm with its continuing business development.”
Adrian Grainger, a partner at Griffiths and Pegg, added: “We are absolutely delighted to have Rachel on board as a partner here at Griffiths & Pegg.
“On behalf of the whole team at the firm, can we wish her great success in her new role.”
