As a non-accountant I can claim not to be certified (or certifiable). I bring another valuable dimension to the business with a background in technology, sales and marketing.
My career background includes several years in telecoms Research and Development (lots of wet string and beer cans) and large scale data communications system sales. I’ve been involved in the development of video conferencing in an era before the internet, and mobile phone cellular network technology.
I am continually amazed and excited by the astonishing pace of technological evolution and how this has impacted on accountancy and what we do here at ASfB.
My key roles involve looking after contracts and the commercial aspects of the business, together with client care. I’m responsible for managing and developing our technology and ensuring we achieve our vision for the future. And much of this parallels the journey that we share with many of our clients.
In the moments away from business I regularly work out with my trainer, I enjoy live music (I have wide eclectic taste), walks along the Jurassic Coast, contemporary art, travel and family life.
