Partner – Head of Tax
I have been a tax professional and business adviser for nearly 30 years working with owner managed businesses and private clients across various sectors and involving many different specialisms.
I joined Jackson Stephen as Head of Tax in June 2015 from a top 10 national practice where I was a senior tax partner and regional head of their North West private client business.
The most enjoyable and rewarding part of my job is working closely with my clients, challenging them and providing pragmatic advice to help add more value to their business.
My objective is to serve my client's needs and to try and make a difference to their business. I am also a good listener which helps me gain a better understanding of what my clients are trying to achieve.
The outcome of this is that I will try to open up new business opportunities for my clients and ensure their affairs are structured in the most commercial and tax efficient way possible.
Outside of work I have 2 teenage children who keep me on my toes! I am also a fair weather cyclist and a proud Sunderland supporter, despite their lack of success in the last 40 odd years!
