haysmacintyre, the Top 30 firm of chartered accountants and tax advisors, has today announced the appointment of Natasha Frangos as the firm’s new Managing Partner, effective from 1 July 2022.
Taking over the role from Jeremy Beard, who has led the firm for the past three years, Natasha’s appointment sees her become the first female Managing Partner of haysmacintyre – one of only a few Top 30 accountancy firms which currently have a woman in this position. Having been a Partner for 13 years, Natasha currently sits on haysmacintyre’s Management Board as the firm’s Head of Corporate, a role she has held since 2019. Previously, she held the position of Head of Creative, Media and Technology for nine years.
Natasha joined haysmacintyre as a trainee in September 2000 and has since become a champion of development and diversity within the firm, from acting as a mentor to many of her colleagues to driving an expansion of the firm’s maternity policy to include Partners. Natasha’s appointment demonstrates haysmacintyre’s inward talent investment strategy, further underlined by 54% of current Partners having qualified at the firm.

“I’m thrilled to be taking on the Managing Partner role at haysmacintyre to lead the firm into its next stage of growth. Jeremy’s leadership has helped the firm mitigate a tumultuous three years, and his resolve has undoubtedly put haysmacintyre in a strong position for the future.
