Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson?

Having previously headed up the High Wycombe office, I took up the position of Managing Director in April 2017, where I oversee the smooth running of the firm, whilst still advising my key clients.

Why Whitley Stimpson?

Great people, great clients, great quality, great culture and great satisfaction.

My experience.

I have been a director for 22 years, helping mostly SME enterprises grow and reach their aims, including several business sales and acquisitions along the way. Like many of my clients, I own my own business, which adds to my understanding of the challenges they face. I'm also an RI for audit purposes having done audits all of my working life. I also complete ATOL and SRA audits.

My undergraduate degree was in Politics, Philosophy and Economics and I also have an MBA from Reading University and an MA from Exeter University in Leadership, which adds to me as a person. Business requires all of these disciplines too. I go back to Oxford University for the second time in September 2017, this time to the faculty of law, where I will specialise in taxation law working towards another Masters degree. High-level tax planning is a huge requirement from our clients. I'm massively looking forward to going back to college life; rowing (even if it isn't straight), cheap food, gorgeous buildings and intellectual stimulation.

What matters to you?

Clients and my staff. We want to work together, be happy and get the job done.  My work/life balance is crucial; as yours should be.  I have to want to come to work, be rewarded whilst I am here and go home happy and I want the same for everyone around me.
