Aston Shaw has appointed long-serving employee, Daniel Overton as a Director of the East Anglian accountancy firm.
This is quite the success story; Daniel Overton first started at Aston Shaw in March 2007 as an apprentice and 10 years later, he is now a Director of one of the region’s largest independent accountancy firms.
When Daniel initially started at Aston Shaw as an apprentice, he was working in the VAT department. After displaying a natural talent for finance, Daniel quickly moved into accounts and progressed to the role of Client Manager. In 2014, Daniel also took on a managerial role at the Cambridge office, between then and now, a lot has changed. In his time at Cambridge, Daniel has overseen an acquisition and an office move; he has dealt with these challenges and the pressures associated with growth with the utmost professionalism.

Daniel held the role of Client Manager up until his recent appointment as Director and now deals mainly with owner managed businesses. Aston Shaw now has five Directors, of which Daniel is one.

I look forward to helping lead the company forward as it continues to grow.”
Daniel’s appointment comes in response to the rapid growth of the firm, following a series of mergers and acquisitions. Mark Noakes, Director at Aston Shaw said: “The decision to promote Daniel to the role of Director was an easy one, I can think of nobody more deserving. I have complete confidence in Daniel, I know he has what it takes to help guide Aston Shaw to a bright and prosperous future.”
