Roberto Lobue - FCA


Robert Lobue - Menzies Accountant


I have significant experience of advising medium-sized and privately-owned businesses and in dealing with complex and larger audit assignments from SMEs to companies up to £100m turnover.

I specialise in the retail sector. I also have extensive knowledge and experience of acting for FCA regulated companies, with a particular focus on insurance brokers.

I also specialise in dealing with subsidiaries of international companies. I am a fluent French speaker and the head of Menzies French Desk, which provides services to businesses and individuals looking to operate in the UK.

I trained with Menzies and qualified as a chartered accountant in 2002. In 2015, I became a Partner in the firm’s Farnborough office.


Alternative career choice
I would have loved to have written and made films.

My most embarrassing work experience
As a trainee, on-site at a client’s for an audit, I mistakenly used the women’s toilets for the first four days.

Who would play me in a movie
I’d like to say Ryan Gosling, but its more likely to be Michael Cera or Jesse Eisenberg.
