Cumbrian Accountancy Firm Appoints Operations Director

Lamont Pridmore - Accountants

One of Cumbria’s leading accountancy firms, Lamont Pridmore, has appointed a new Operations Director to its South Cumbria team. 


Dawn Devine joins the family run firm of Chartered Accountants, Tax and Business Advisers from a national Top 10 accountancy practice in Berkshire where she was a Partner. Dawn will now work across Lamont Pridmore’s South Cumbria offices in Kendal, Barrow and Carnforth.


Dawn is a qualified ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) accountant with over 35 years’ experience in practice.  She has developed an impressive career specialising in managing the affairs of owner managed businesses.  She brings her expertise in all aspects of accountancy work, personal tax and corporation tax to the Lamont Pridmore team. 

Speaking about her new role, Dawn said: “My many years of experience in practice means I’m well equipped to understand the challenges our clients face in running their businesses.  I’m enjoying getting to know them and better understand some of the sectors that are so important to this area, including engineering, retail, wholesale and hospitality and tourism. 

“I focus on providing clients with holistic, proactive advice to help them to manage their business and personal financial affairs. It’s fantastic to work within a family business which enables me to provide a much more personal service than that offered in a more corporate environment.”

Karl Burrell, Managing Director of Lamont Pridmore South Cumbria, said: “I’m delighted Dawn has joined our team.  Her knowledge and experience are a great addition to our existing team and will enable everyone to spend more time with our clients, continuing to offer high levels of customer service and quality, forward-thinking advice.”

Dawn was born in Lancashire but has spent much of her working career in the south of England.  She is delighted to have returned to the north and now calls Hutton Roof home.  Access to the Lake District fells was one of the main reasons for relocating to Kendal as Dawn is a keen walker and a member of the Long Distance Walkers Association.
