New Partners

We are delighted to announce that our two Associates have become Partners this month.

Lewis Hampton and Mike Bryan have both been working for the practice for a number of years and their dedication to providing excellent service for their clients is being recognised with their progression to partners within the firm.

Lewis joined us in 2010 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser in 2011 and 2017 respectively. Lewis is based in our Eastbourne office and acts for a broad range of clients located in different areas of the UK. He has a special interest in individuals and corporate bodies associated with the Lloyd’s of London insurance market and provides a number of specialist services including auditing, valuations and tax advisory and compliance.

Mike Bryan completed his honours degree in Accountancy & Finance in 2010; he then went on to study for his Chartered Accountant qualification which he achieved shortly after joining the firm in 2014. Mike has worked within the healthcare sector throughout his career and has expert knowledge and experience in this industry. He also presents seminars on accountancy and taxation to healthcare professionals and has provided healthcare updates to some of the leading UK banks.

Lewis said “I am delighted and extremely proud to be appointed a partner of the firm after many years of hard work. It has been my aim since starting my accountancy career to become a partner so I am pleased to have been able to achieve this with a firm like Humphrey & Co.

I’m looking forward to working with the other partners to drive the firm forward during this challenging time whilst continuing to provide an excellent service to our clients”.

“Joining the partnership in May 2020 was an immensely proud occasion” said Mike. “I would like to thank the partners for allowing me to achieve my ambition since embarking on a career in accountancy 10 years ago.

The partners continue to inspire and motivate our team by proving that hard work, motivation and sound knowledge can be rewarded with career progression.

I will continue to provide my clients with a pro-active and exemplary service, assist clients to overcome the challenges that COVID-19 presents and look forward to positively impacting the firm and my clients in the years ahead.”

Anthony Smith, Senior Partner comments “Succession within any professional services firm is critically important and we often plan years in advance to ensure a seamless transition for our clients and continuity of service. We also need new partners to fuel our continued growth especially in our niche areas.

Lewis and Mike have shown determination and ambition over the past 2 or 3 years especially, and we are delighted that they have now committed to Humphrey & Co for the long term. These are undoubtedly extremely challenging times, and as a partnership, we are confident both Lewis and Mike will skilfully guide our clients to calmer waters on the other side, and beyond.

We have big plans for them both and combined with their skill sets, we are excited about the future. In the meantime, all the existing partners offer their sincere congratulations. It’s just a pity we can’t celebrate together at this time in a more traditional fashion!”
