Title: Director


My career background in PLCs, having operated at director level since the late 80's, holding positions of Finance; Commercial; Regional Business and Managing Director. I've bought and sold businesses, opened and closed them, carried out profit improvement programmes, relocated businesses, bench marked multi-site operations, managed them and simply been the FD.

In 2002, having been made redundant for the third time, I decided to become master of my own destiny, and went into practice with the aim of taking Management Accounting to the SME market. I've established a successful practice doing exactly that, alongside the inevitable compliance work that floats in the door, although for most of the time, I have concentrated on using my skills and experience as a management accountant, employing others to care for the compliance work albeit trained by me! I've added significant value in a variety of ways, and in a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, retail and service industries. 

An experienced operator at board level, contributing outside of my expected focus, and earning the respect of all. I'm an ideas person, offering solutions not problems. Happy to be involved sub-committees, and generally contribute from my vast commercial experience and knowledge to steer and guide organisations in the desired direction.

A people person, seeking to empower and raise up individuals to be the best they can be, especially in a team environment. 

I'm immensely proud to be a fellow of my institute, an am a champion of ensuring we are and will continue to occupy the ground of providing industry and commerce with forward thinking, insightful accounting, whether SMEs or larger corporations. We have a specialism, and I'm always championing our difference, and the positive approach we take to enhancing the world commerce.
