Will Hellewell has joined accountancy firm Grant Thornton’s Sheffield team as business development manager.

He started his career with Virgin Media Business in Sheffield, working as a business development executive for two years, before moving to sales training and recruitment firm Pareto Law, based at its head office in Wilmslow.

In March 2014, he joined WSI Yorkshire, now part of the Attercopia Group, to head up the sales and marketing team across the UK.

In his new role, he will be expected to maximise opportunities to create successful business development strategies, marketing activities and industry leading events.

Andrew Devonald, business development senior manager for Yorkshire, said: “Will already has a valuable grounding in business development, working with globally recognised businesses in the region and beyond. His appointment is a welcome addition to the Yorkshire team, helping us to ensure that businesses here are aware of Grant Thornton’s first class offering.”

Will added: “Grant Thornton has established a strong position as ‘a class of one’ and is known for its distinctive, client-focussed approach. I am looking forward to being part of delivering the values and expertise which set the firm apart and giving Yorkshire’s dynamic businesses the opportunity to benefit from our expertise.”
