Senior Partner at Whitehead & Aldrich set to retire after 34 years

Richard Mullineaux, Senior Partner at Whitehead & Aldrich is retiring at the end of September after 34 years with the firm.

He started his career in accountancy as an articled clerk in Preston with Moore and Smalley in 1965 and after becoming a fully qualified Chartered Accountant in 1969 moved to Deloitte in Manchester.  After 14 years in Manchester, Preston finally exerted its pull on him and he returned to his home city to join Whitehead & Aldrich.

Over the years, Richard has formed long standing relationships with many clients, offering advice and support to aid their business growth. In some cases, he’s even seen businesses pass from one generation to the next!

Founded in 1906, Whitehead & Aldrich is one of Preston’s oldest established accountancy firms.  With a team of sixteen they’re based in a stunning historic building in the heart of Preston in Winckley Square. Clients have come to trust and value the team’s support over the years and some have been with the firm since the very beginning.

When asked how he felt, Richard said, “It will certainly be strange not coming to work each day after all these years, but I must say I’m looking forward to having more time with my grandchildren and also on the golf course. I’m hoping the team will allow me to pop in for a coffee and a biscuit every now and again, and I wonder if I ask nicely, whether I’ll be allowed to use the carpark when I’m in central Preston sometimes too!”

David Greenwood, Partner at Whitehead & Aldrich commented, “During his 34 years with the firm there has hardly been a day when Richard was not present. His dedication and his sage advice will be missed by both the firm and its clients. We wish Richard and his wife Linda a long and happy retirement.”
