She said: "I am looking forward to taking on this new role and working with Matt again as well as the other partners. Haines Watts has a client-centred approach, which means that we can take the time to really understand the client's needs.
"My role is to look after owner-managed businesses of any size and my experience has given me a good grounding in what is important to business-owners.
"With a strong audit background I believe as a team we can really add value to the larger corporate businesses in North Devon."
Matthew Melksham, partner at Haines Watts North Devon LLP, said: "It is great to work with Louisa again as she brings her enthusiasm and vast experience in the sector. Louisa will fit very well into our team as she understands that as a practice we are here to help our clients prosper and grow."
