With a career stretching back more than four decades, Richard Anthony’s outgoing Partner Tony Simons has seen significant changes in the practice and accountancy sector.
Tony originally joined the London firm based in Finchley back in 1994, having previously worked as an Audit Partner at a medium-sized practice.
Over the years, Tony has worked with a wide range of clients under his portfolio, providing guidance and support to them throughout their lifecycle.
During this time, he has helped to build and develop incredible professional relationships, which has helped the firm to attract many new clients.
He has also given support to the other partners where a second partner review or additional technical assistance is required as the firm’s Technical Partner, which he will continue to offer under this new role.
However, one of the most rewarding aspects of his work is leading the firm’s structured training programme, which has helped many next-generation professionals acquire prestigious qualifications.
Speaking about his semi-retirement, Tony said: “I have enjoyed a fantastic career at Richard Anthony and met some great colleagues and clients.
“We have grown so much as a firm in the last three decades and a lot has changed. I am looking forward to my retirement but hope to see the firm continue to flourish under the leadership of my fellow partners and our talented team of accountants and advisers. However, I am not disappearing from Richard Anthony. I am looking forward to providing help and assistance to the firm and clients as a Consultant to the practice”.
In addition to his new role, Tony hopes to enjoy his many passions during his retirement, including his love of reading and music, as well as taking to the green to play the occasional round of golf and naturally spending time with his newly born grand-daughter.
Tony Levy, Richard Anthony’s Senior Partner, added: “Tony has been an integral part of our growth and development as a firm. His technical skills are second to none, and he has forged some incredible relationships with clients during his time at the practice.
“Although his knowledge and professionalism will be missed by many of us, we would like to wish him the best of luck as he begins his semi-retirement. We are glad that he is not leaving us entirely so we can continue to call on his advice.”
