Congratulations to Kelly Davies, who has been made a Partner of Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants. Based in our Bridgwater and Somerton offices, Kelly originally trained and qualified with the firm.

Kelly joined Thomas Westcott in 2012 and provides businesses and individuals with a full range of accountancy services. Supporting a large number of agricultural clients, she also advises limited companies, partnerships, sole traders and charities in and around Bridgwater and Somerton. Working mainly with small owner-managed businesses, she supports many of our long-standing Somerset clients.

After qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 2017, Kelly quickly progressed through the firm. She was promoted to Manager in 2017 and Director in 2020.

Kelly said: “Being promoted to Partner means fulfilling a long-held ambition. Working for Thomas Westcott, I’ve benefited from the phenomenal expertise and experience across the firm and this has been instrumental to me progressing in my career. 

“Working with people is what drives me and, over the last nine years, I have developed trusted relationships with long-standing clients. Many of my most rewarding career moments have involved helping people to set up their businesses and then supporting them as they’ve grown and succeeded.

“My focus now is on growing my network of contacts and further raising the firm’s profile in the local area as well as continuing to offer my clients the very best service.”

Thomas Westcott Partner Phil Butterworth said: “Congratulations to Kelly whose promotion to Partner is so well deserved. 

“Kelly is the perfect general practitioner who has fully embraced every opportunity at Thomas Westcott. We’re at the heart of the local communities here in Bridgwater and Somerton, with most new clients coming through personal recommendations. Therefore, it’s vital that we develop and maintain strong long-term relationships with our clients. That’s Kelly’s real strength. She really understands our clients and gives them the attention they need to succeed.

“I have no doubt that Kelly will continue to grow and develop her skills as she progresses further in her role.”
