A CHARTERED accountant and business adviser is expanding after unveiling a new associate.

Waltons Clark Whitehill, in Hartlepool, says it wants two workers for its tax team to meet increased demand.

The move comes as George Hardey, who joined the firm 15 years ago as a tax senior, was promoted to associate.
