Award-winning Essex accountancy firm Rickard Luckin are excited to announce the appointment of Dan Garside to the role of Client Service Director from 2nd July 2018.
Dan is to be based at Rickard Luckin’s Nelson Street office in Southend, where he will reinforce a successful team led by Directors Bill Gould, Jamie Nice and Alan Worsdale.
Previously a partner at Southend-based accountancy firm Wilkins Kennedy, Dan is a well-established member of the local professional community with over twenty years’ experience in the accountancy field. In particular, he has worked successfully alongside a diverse portfolio of family businesses, SMEs and start-up ventures from a broad range of industries.
Bill Gould commented:
“I am thrilled that Dan has joined the Rickard Luckin team. His extensive experience, personal skill set and local reputation are second to none and will further enhance our presence in the local business community and beyond. His arrival will elevate an already exceptional team in our Southend office to something really special.“
Dan’s appointment extends and strengthens Rickard Luckin’s community ethos, forming part of the firm’s wider strategy for increased investment and growth in the Southend area.
Rickard Luckin boasts a proud history in Southend, having maintained a successful presence there for almost a century. The firm frequently collaborates with local businesses and organisations and is a regular sponsor of community and charity events in which members of the team participate – including the forthcoming Rotary Club Raft Race in July.
Extensive refurbishment work was recently completed by Rickard Luckin on their Nelson Street office, creating a 21st century-style open plan environment to support the rapidly growing team. Clean-lined and contemporary, the new office incorporates the firm’s branding throughout.
Rickard Luckin’s Managing Director, Janis Osborne, was enthusiastic about welcoming Dan to the upgraded Southend office:
“I am so excited to welcome Dan as a Director to Rickard Luckin. He is a great fit with our company values of passionate, personal and professional. Dan joining us enriches the local knowledge and energy of our existing Southend team. Plus he’s a great golfer, which is an added bonus!”

“I have lived and worked in Southend all my life. I am passionate about the town, the people and the businesses within it. I am therefore delighted to be joining Rickard Luckin, a firm that is committed to supporting the local community through its wide-ranging expertise and vibrant team.”
