A Droitwich company is celebrating one of its most high-achieving employees.

Ballards LLP, an accounting firm, is applauding the professionalism and achievements of Adrian Sidaway, an impressive individual who has soared through the company ranks to become an associate director.

Mr Sidaway's professional journey began straight after school, working initially as a trainee audit and accounts associate at Javed and Co. in Birmingham.

He was soon recognised for his talent and determination, which led to a senior position working on accounts and conducting audits for companies with turnovers of around £180 m.

However, it was at Ballards LLP where Mr Sidaway truly blossomed.

After joining the firm and earning his accountancy qualification, he steadily moved up, from qualified audit & accounts senior to assistant manager, audit manager, senior audit manager, and now associate director.

Ben Powell, audit partner at Ballards LLP, said: "Adrian's progression has been truly impressive.

"His dedication, hard work, and exceptional skills have propelled him to new heights within our firm.

"Adrian's contributions have been invaluable, and we are proud to have him as part of our team.

However, Mr Sidaway's influence extends beyond his rapid career growth: his work has changed the way the firm operates.

Mr Powell added: "Adrian's insights and innovative ideas have transformed the way we approach international audits.

"His contributions have been instrumental in streamlining our processes and ensuring we remain at the forefront of our industry."

Outside work, Mr Sidaway is a passionate football fan, holding a season ticket for Aston Villa Football Club, and enjoys weekly five-a-side football to unwind and recharge.

Ballards LLP says they have a "commitment to nurturing talent and fostering an environment where individuals can thrive and reach their full potential."

Mr Sidaway's story, however, serves as an inspiration for all professionals, exemplifying the rewards hard work can yield.
