Newcastle-based chartered accountancy and business advisory firm UNW has welcomed the appointment of Mike Blenkharn as Senior Manager to its specialist Dental Business Unit.

Mike, who has a degree in Accounting & Finance and qualified as a chartered ACCA accountant in January 2016, joins the firm with over 10 years’ experience in working with dental professionals. Before moving to UNW, he was Healthcare Manager at Dodd & Co. Chartered Accountants, where he was involved in advising the majority of the firm’s dental practice clients. Alongside his dental accounting experience, Mike brings with him a wealth of experience in NHS contracts, net pensionable earnings, tax affairs, exit strategies, and retirement planning.

The appointment of Mike adds to UNW’s growing team, with the firm now employing over 115 people at its Citygate offices, underpinning its success in the marketplace across all sectors. UNW’s Dental Business Unit, led by partner Alan Suggett, is a leading national advisory team that acts for over 500 dentists across the UK.

Alan Suggett, Dental Business Unit Partner at UNW, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Mike to UNW. Adding another experienced accountant to our dental team, to work alongside Liam Richardson and me, helps us to further stand out, even amongst NASDAL accountants. We are now best placed to not only continue delivering excellent service to our dental clients, but to help develop our growth plans with confidence.”

Mike Blenkharn, newly appointed Senior Manager within UNW’s Dental Business Unit, said: “I have known Alan for many years through NASDAL, so was well aware of the focused and professional approach that UNW takes in providing the best service to its clients, as well as in developing its people. Despite the unusual time in which I have joined the team, the firm has been extremely welcoming, and I look forward to working with our substantial client base.”
