Swindon based Optimum appoints new Board member

Optimum Tracey Heath

Professional services company Optimum have appointed a new Board member.

Tracey Heath, the Swindon-based firm’s Practice Manager, has become Practice Director. She joins the existing directors, including Accounts Director Michael Blaken.

Michael said: “We are delighted that Tracey has agreed to join the Board. As our Practice Manager, who has been with us from the outset, she has a fantastic overview of the entire business. She will enable us to create a better link with the staff and communicate their views, be more diverse and have a more efficient operation.”

Tracey began her career in office management with Allied Dunbar (which later became Zurich), and has worked with a number of accountancy practices, as well as Swindon Council and Helen Browning’s Organics.

She said: “Being on the Board will enable me to get involved in the running of the business, as well as better communicate what is happening to the rest of the team, and I can also act as a voice for the team. In my role, I have a good overview of the business, while the other directors can concentrate on their separate areas.”
