A highly experienced senior trust and company client accountant with over 20 years experience in the finance and retail sectors has joined RAS Group.
Melanie Harvey-Alan now heads the firm’s growing Business Administration team, where she is responsible for the delivery of bookkeeping and payroll functions. Joining RAS from finance company, Equiom, Melanie was their only full-time accountant. In addition to her accountancy role she looked after the internal bookkeeping systems and managed key data migration and new company system projects. These skills and experience are a perfect match for her new role at RAS, where attention to detail and excellent understanding of bookkeeping and accounting systems are essential part of delivering a first-class service to our clients.
Ms Char, partner at RAS said:
“Melanie is a welcome addition to the RAS Group’s Business Administration team. We work with a number of high profile clients, where we provide seamless day to day bookkeeping and administrative support. It’s an approach we call “Insourcing” where we provide services in exactly the same way as if it were all done by the client in-house. For this reason, we wanted someone who could quickly get to grips with our clients accounting systems, a skillset we were very pleased to acquire with the appointment of Melanie. Her arrival marks an important period of growth for RAS where we have big plans to take on more administration clients.”
Melanie will also play a key part in a number of special advisory and consultancy projects RAS are currently working on, as well as developing the company’s in-house systems and procedures.
