London Director

sharon.cooke@mercia-group.com

Sharon joined us in 2004 having been a manager in practice. Starting out as an audit file reviewer and lecturer, Sharon's role has developed and changed over the years and she is now an Executive Director and a tax CPD lecturer. Understandably, topics such as “Tax Update for Audit and Accounting teams” are a particular specialism of Sharon’s.

Sharon heads up the London and South East region of our group and works with numerous accountancy firms and networks based in that region to understand their needs and ensure our business strategy remains aligned to meeting those needs. As well as services around “Train”, “Promote” and “Support”, Sharon and the London team also help accountancy practices with ICAEW student monitoring and graduate recruitment.

From a tax perspective, Sharon is a Chartered Institute of Taxation prize-winner (2005 Gilbert Burr medal) and is a member of the London Society of Chartered Accountants tax committee. She authors and presents a selection of our tax CPD courses, including the Spring and Autumn Tax Update, Finance Act Update and the Quarterly Tax Update Key Issues webinars.
