About me!

Originally from Yorkshire, I qualified as a Chartered Accountant with BDO in Bristol. I returned north to join an independent firm in Bradford before moving to a Corporate Finance boutique in Leeds. In 2006, after 7 years professional experience, I joined the practice division of a global recruitment business in Leeds where I gained valuable knowledge of the Yorkshire market. At the end of 2010, I decided to set up on my own to focus on delivering a very hands-on, long-term, highly personalised and non-target driven approach to recruitment.

My wife is also a Chartered Accountant as are many of our friends. Together with my own practice experience, this has given me a unique insight into how Practice works and the career options and dilemmas faced by Accountancy professionals.

When I'm not working, my wife and I are season ticket holders of Leeds Carnegie rugby union club. I also enjoy playing golf, running, walking, eating out and travelling.
