What is your role?
I am a member of the firm’s Management Board and head of our taxation and payroll teams. I also look after a variety of business clients in both our Melton Mowbray and Spalding offices and have particular sector expertise in farming, agri-business and the leisure industry.
I specialise across the whole firm in business taxation, restructuring, strategic planning and resolving HMRC enquiries.
What else are you involved with?
I have close links with both Castlegate Financial Management and Probate Services because the tax advice we give must dovetail with both wealth management and legal services, such as Wills and Trusts.
What interests do you have outside of work?
Living in Rutland, I am a running leader for my local running club, Stamford Striders. Running seems to have become a bit of an obsession as I also run with a Melton club, Stilton Striders, and I have an ambition to run more half marathons than my age! I also enjoy social games of squash.
What is your most memorable experience?
Being at the fourth day of the Durham test match in 2013 when England cricket team regained the Ashes from Australia in dramatic fashion.
What is the most valuable piece of advice you have been given during your career?
You will only ever be as successful as the team you build around you.
