Being born and bred in Torbay, I’ve been fortunate to spend my career to date at some of the Westcountry’s finest accountancy firms, working closely with local business owners to grow and achieve their objectives. Having been brought up in one of Paignton’s largest hotels, I have been involved in business from a very young age which has given me a unique perspective of the leisure and Tourism sector, the largest industry in the English Riviera.
I am a Chartered Accountant and Business Services Manager with broad experience in all aspects of accounting, tax and financial management. I manage a portfolio of clients in a wide range of industries, varying from unincorporated sole traders & partnerships to companies close to the audit thresholds.
I’m the founder of #TorbayHour on Twitter every Monday 8-9pm and manage the @Torbay_Hour account. This has been a highly successful venture to bring together businesses and individuals across Torbay & South Devon in a focused hour of tweeting with local people. Already we have seen relationships building and business generated through it, as well as local charities & events using it to raise awareness. We recently launched the #TorbayHour radio show – available to stream via the Music Mill radio station every Monday night.
