I am Head of Audit and Accounts for Smith Cooper’s Birmingham office.

What can I do for your organisation?

I work closely with my clients, meeting regularly to develop a deep understanding of their needs, including the future development of their businesses. This approach ensures that matters relevant to their annual financial statements and corporate tax affairs are identified, discussed and concluded at the earliest stage possible so as to avoid unwanted surprises.

Experience counts

I am an experienced partner, having worked with owner managed businesses in the Midlands region for over 20 years. I joined Smith Cooper in 2016, having previously spent 15 years at Bentley Jennison and, more recently, as an audit partner at RSM.

I have advised and assisted start-ups and growing businesses, in areas including access to funding, preparation of business plans and accounting systems. I have long term relationships with my clients and have assisted owners with exit strategies.

Deeper knowledge

I have particular experience in the manufacturing, software and technology sectors, and am experienced in working with companies with activities and subsidiaries overseas.

Personally speaking

I have a keen interest in motorsport, in both the technical and sporting sides. I am a passionate road cyclist, and also enjoy the history of professional road racing and designing and building my own bikes.
