Four Generations of the Moore Family celebrate success
22 January 2018

Katie Moore is the latest Moore family member to join our team – making her the fourth generation to work at the practice.

Katie, 19, joins her father Jonathan and uncle Chris, who are both Partners and her grandfather Dudley Moore who retired after many years at the practice and still remains part of the firm as a consultant.

The practice celebrated its 125th anniversary last year with the earliest records of the practice dating back to 1892 from offices in Victoria Chambers in Hull city-centre. Katie’s great-grandfather Stanley Dowsland Moore played a pivotal role after joining in 1932 and buying the practice for £1,852 in 1935. He changed the practice name to Dutton Moore the same year and led the practice move to Silver Street in 1947 where the practice remained until 2012 before relocating to the current prestigious premises at Aldgate House in Market Place.

Katie has joined the practice as an accountancy trainee on the in-house training scheme after completing her A-Levels in Economics, Business and Financial Studies at South Hunsley Sixth Form. Katie commented: “I wanted to go into accountancy because it felt like a natural progression from the A levels I completed.

“To be following in the family’s footsteps is important because it is carrying on the tradition into the fourth generation – and of course I am the first female member of our family to be a part of Dutton Moore!”

Jonathan Moore, Partner at the practice and Katie’s father, commented: “In respect of Katie I am immensely proud that she has decided to follow in the footsteps of her father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. Accountancy has been a huge part of our family’s life for generations and to see my daughter enter into the profession herself is a wonderful marker in our family’s life."

Tony Bullock, Managing Partner, added: “We welcome Katie to the practice. The Moore family are a huge part of both our history and our future. I wish Katie every success in her career.”
