    What do you do?

    I’ve got a varied role – I’m part of the Audit Leadership Team, I lead the firm’s relationship with around 50 clients and I win new business for the firm, either for myself or by helping others.

    Why do you do it?

    I love helping people – family and friends have previously said I’d make a good doctor! I help clients with their business challenges and I help my teammates in whatever ways I can. Working at CP gives me an opportunity to do my best work every day in a culture that I love and couldn’t be replicated anywhere else.

    What kind of projects have you been involved in?

    My role now involves project management rather than getting stuck into the detail. But in the past I was involved in the first listing project the firm ever had! We took a client through a full listing onto the London Stock Exchange. By no means was I the lead on this, but I stepped in to help when I saw the size and complexity of the task facing the team – although it was incredibly hard work, it was one of the most rewarding projects we’ve ever delivered. Our client was delighted with what we’d done and voluntarily paid us extra fees as a show of gratitude – never seen before or since!

    What’s on top of your bucket list?

    I’ve got lots of stuff I want to do but something that’s been there for about 35 years is to own, and use, a season ticket at Exeter City.

    I was born in Exeter and I’ve been a passionate fan since I was first taken to a game at the age of 10. Living in the Midlands, plus work, family, etc have meant I’ve tended to go to between 10 and 15 away games every season, but I would love to be able to go to all the home games – maybe one for when the kids have left home!
