Welcome to our new Director

Stafford & Co welcome a new Director to their growing team whilst they continue to invest in local young talent from across the region. The growing firm, based in Bolton, has appointed Dominic Grimes as Operations Director to help assist with the next stage of its growth.

Never one to shy from hard work, Dominic, who is from Bolton, left school at 16 years old and qualified as an AAT accountant aged just 18, becoming a Chartered Accountant by the age of 21.  Dominic is a well-known figure in the strong community of financial professionals in Bolton having worked for another local accountancy firm for the last 13 years; building up an extensive portfolio of clients in the region and beyond.

Joining the practice in the new role of Operations Director, Dominic will focus on advisory work, whilst also helping to run the company’s operations on a day to day basis.

Commenting on his new role, Dominic said:

“Stafford & Co are known as a forward-thinking and well-established accountancy firm. I wanted to join Rob to be part of the team and most importantly the plans for the future. I have a brilliant business partner in Rob and we’re looking forward to continuing to deliver a quality service to the firm’s clients.  We both enjoy working closely with business owners to help them really understand their financial position and potential and working actively with them to help achieve their growth ambitions”. 

Rob Stafford, Managing Director at Stafford & Co said:

Having known Dominic for many years, I’m confident that he is the right person to help me take the firm forward again and offer great support and advice to our expanding client base. Dominic adds great experience to the talented team at Stafford & Co and I’m sure he will take an active role helping further develop our people.  We’re supporting more young people to become accountants, many of whom are following a similar journey to Dominic, so his help will be extremely valuable. Overall, it’s been a good year for the firm, as the Stafford & Co team has welcomed both a new Payroll Manager and another Graduate Trainee Accountant. This has been a real positive step and I believe we have the right team in place to continue to deliver a high-quality service to our clients and we are excited for the year ahead.
