She will be supported in this role by Deputy President, Andrew Lovelady and Vice President, Robert Young and the committee.

Carol McLachlan, founder of and President of the Liverpool Society of Chartered Accountants, said: “It is with great pleasure, and more than a little excitement, that I take on the presidency of the Liverpool Society. In this era of fast paced, relentless change, our Society is about to enter its 150th year of operation.  With its rich heritage and roots in the nineteenth century, I am truly proud of the legacy bestowed on me to take the reins at this pivotal point.  Amid the challenges of the twenty first century, we strive to continue to thrive and flourish as we break new ground, deepening and extending our ties with ever more diverse local groups and organisations. I am honoured to take on this leadership role and look forward to supporting our members and the wider community in the coming year.”
