    What do you do?

    I help my clients to produce accurate financial accounts through our audit process and ultimately I sign our audit reports on those accounts. This means working with clients and our audit teams to understand the business, identify issues and develop solutions to these.

    I am also responsible for our wider relationship with those clients helping them to manage change and tackle their business challenges.

    Why do you do it?

    I’m a numbers geek and studied maths at university so accountancy was a natural career choice. I’m also curious, I love problem solving and I feel great when I use my skills and experience to make a difference to a colleague or a client.

    Having spent 15 years at a Big 4 firm I recently joined CP and I’m loving the passion of the team and the way we embrace change and new opportunities.

    What kind of projects have you been involved in?

    As well as hundreds of audits with diverse companies including owner managed, private equity backed and Plcs I have worked on a number of IPOs and a post merger finance transformation project which involved bringing two finance teams and systems together. In all of these it has been understanding people and playing to their unique strengths which has made us successful.

    What’s on top of your bucket list?

    Currently it is visiting Lapland with my wife and two kids to meet Santa. We have the trip booked for December and the kids are getting excited! This combines my passions for travelling and quality time with my family.
