Audit & Compliance

About

I have spent my career in the accountancy profession and is based in the London office of Menzies.

I specialise in advising privately-owned businesses, in a broad spectrum of sectors, but most notably in retail and FCA regulated businesses.

My discipline is audit, however I get the most pleasure out of ensuring that clients are protected from the myriad of legislation that being a business-owner invariably entails. I am also passionate about helping clients to prosper by offering sound commercial advice.

I studied accountancy at Lancaster University and trained with a top 10 accountancy firm in Droitwich.

I moved to London and worked for Morley and Scott, progressing through the ranks and becoming Managing Partner of the firm. In 2009, I joined Menzies when the two firms merged.

Personal

My favourite hobby
Owning and riding a Harley Davidson. This led to my most unusual source of new client introduction, when  an FD in America, who was trawling the internet for a more pro-active UK representation contacted me, knowing I was a fellow Harley fan!
