    My roots are firmly set in Chelmsford's business community and my significant portfolio includes many long-standing clients. As a Registered Auditor, I act on behalf of numerous businesses, including those within niche sectors such as agriculture and construction. I also have roles with family business helping with strategic planning.
    I have known and worked with many of my clients for years now. It’s not just about tax and accounts; in a provincial practice such as ours, you are a financial doctor, helping your clients in so many unexpected ways. I have seen the practice develop significantly over the last few decades or so, and this is reflected in the differing types of high quality services we now provide. Irrespective of our growth we still offer a very personalised client care service, which has been embedded in our culture since we began in 1953.

    Audit Manager
    I am currently an audit manager with a varied client portfolio. I specialise in company audits and pension scheme audits. I also work with non-audit limited companies, preparing accounts and dealing with corporation tax affairs. My portfolio of clients also includes sole traders and partnerships and I work in preparing their accounts and assisting with their personal tax returns. I have been with the Practice for over twenty years and have a great working relationship with many of the firm’s clients. On a personal level, I have a keen interest in most sports.
