I left University and trained as an Accountant with a top 10 City based Firm, where I had first time passes to my Accountancy exams. After qualifying in 1991, I spent 3 years in a smaller multi-office provincial Practice where I became Senior Manager in 1993. In 1994 I joined David Howard as a Partner and became Senior Partner in 1996.
As well as looking after my own portfolio of clients, I am responsible for our Business Development and in particular have taken an interest in the way regular contact through outsourcing services can be used to strengthen our client relationships. I have found that I really enjoy getting to know clients on a deeper level and speaking to people regularly through the year allows me to help them more and gives me a great deal of job satisfaction.
Outside work, my wife Donna and boys Joel and Matthew are the focus of my time. Although I still manage to find time for a variety of sports – kite surfing, windsurfing, cycling, snowboarding (to name a few!), I am a qualified FA Coach, and look after my eldest son's football team - see the attached link for a picture of our proudly sponsored team Ashley Hawks FC!
