He’s previously worked in comms roles for companies including Northern Rock, RBS Insurance, Green Flag and Royal Mail.

Charlesworth said: “Acceleris has established a national reputation for the quality of its work for clients and I am enthusiastic to be joining such a talented and committed team. I look forward to playing my part in helping the agency achieve even greater things in the future.”
