Audit & General Practice Partner

Yes it’s true I always wanted to be a Chartered Accountant! 25 years later I’m still glad I made that decision.

I qualified back in 1992 and I joined Jackson Stephen fifteen years ago.

I love being in the thick of the business world, helping to forge decisions, keeping businesses on track, influencing the fortunes of my clients in positive and constructive ways, using my analytical and planning skills to optimise their success. What’s not to love!

I know I’m considered an approachable and enthusiastic individual in everything I do and I take pride in that. To fulfil my duties as a partner I need to understand what my clients want to achieve and take satisfaction from finding the best possible routes for them to achieve their goals.

I’ve had extensive experience advising many different industry sectors and consider myself a specialist in family companies, charities, law firms and academies.

That’s why for me, giving business advice amounts to much more than just producing the numbers. It’s more a question of engaging with clients one-to-one and discovering exactly where they want their varying endeavours to lead - corporate growth, accumulation of wealth, security for themselves and their families, personal fulfilment?

When the office door closes behind me, my enthusiasm magically switches to following my beloved Manchester United. I love to relax and travel with my family, too.
