I am a Qualified Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience in public practice, specialising in looking after local businesses.
I joined Martin & Company in 1996 as a part-qualified accountant. I completed my training with Martin & Company in 1998, then completed two years’ post-qualification experience before obtaining my ACCA practising certificate, which enabled me to become a full equity partner in Martin & Company in 2007.
Following my admission into the partnership, I qualified as a chartered accountant.
For me the most enjoyable aspect of being an accountant is being able to help companies and individuals not only to meet their legal obligations, but also to run their businesses in the most efficient and profitable manner.
When I am not working long hours in the office, I can be found racing a 600cc Supersport bike in both the NG and MRO championships. I also act as a mechanic for a Formula 1 sidecar team, and enjoy anything with wheels and an engine. In addition to motor sport, I spend a good amount of time in the New Forest enjoying the gentler and quieter pursuits.
