I joined Menzies in 1984 and have over 30 years’ experience of accounting and compliance work. I enjoy meeting with clients and planning their business, including looking at exit strategies.
I specialise in helping owner-managed businesses, in particular start-ups, providing consultancy advice, for example, on accounting systems that suit the business.
I am involved in Start-Up Woking, an initiative with Woking Borough Council to help local businesses in their first three years of trading. This is proving very interesting and is resulting in new clients for the firm. In the first three years, over 250 businesses have benefitted from the scheme.
I am also very involved with Woking Chamber of Commerce and was previously President of the Chamber.
My first job
I worked for an engraving firm. One entire week was spent engraving the room numbers for a hotel.
My favourite hobbies
I’m a Woking FC season ticket holder and I enjoy a game of golf.
My favourite destination
For 2 weeks each February I head to the same small hotel on the Goan shore for a chill-out in the sun.
