What is your role?

Since joining the firm in 1993 I have built up extensive experience of auditing owner managed business across a broad range of sectors, with a particular focus on manufacturing and engineering. I also have specialist experience with Solicitors' Accounts Rules and Pension Scheme Accounts, as well as due diligence services for corporate finance transactions. I am a member of the firm’s audit and accountancy technical committee.

What else are you involved with?

I am also a member of the Mercia audit manual committee.

What keeps you busy outside of work?

I live near Nottingham and in my spare time enjoy watching motorsport and football, being a keen supporter of Nottingham Forest FC, as well as taking regular holidays to Cornwall in an effort to improve my surfing skills! I’ve recently taken up golf, but this is very much a work in progress right now.

What is the most valuable piece of advice you have been given during your career?

Aim to take the best traits when learning from the people that you work with, and leave behind their worst.

What is your favourite...

Holiday destination? St Ives in Cornwall
Sports team? Nottingham Forest (but they are testing my loyalty!)
Board game? Uno. Okay, it's a card game rather than a board game, but it shows that numbers can (sometimes) be fun!
