The firm now has nine people based in its Wilmslow  town centre offices advising and supporting a wide range of clients. The new role will give Chris closer interaction with clients and a new level of responsibility. “I was really keen to get proper, recognised exposure to clients – something I had missed in previous positions – and this job does all that and more.”

Chris will also be reviewing the work of junior associates and ensuring Langricks’ high standards of service are consistently delivered. “The firm has established its reputation for quality financial processes and I be will making sure that is maintained and developed.”

Networking with the local business community is also high on the job spec for Chris who is being tasked with spotting new business opportunities as well as assessing new Cloud software solutions.  Chris is working on a special Artificial Intelligence (AI) project with Director Chris Langrick, looking to integrate latest best practice and develop new solutions. He commented: “AI will mean less time on basic tasks and more time for experienced professionals to offer clients longer-term strategic financial advice.” 

Langricks is already meeting needs for outsourced senior advisors and provides several client companies with what is described as a ‘virtual’ FD.

Commenting on this and the new hire Chris Langrick said: “We are very excited by the opportunities provided by AI and I have asked Chris to help lead our interpretation of its capabilities as part of his new role with us. He is rising to the challenges of everything we have given him so far and has settled in well.”

Chris lives in Sandbach and says family and a love of golf keep him busy out of hours.

"Chris is helping lead our interpretation of AI as part of his new role with us. He is rising to the challenges of everything we have given him so far and has settled in well."
