Treasurer

I am a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser who qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1980 at Small of Chartered Accountants and then moved to work for an International firm of Chartered Accountants – KPMG. In 1983 I moved into taxation full time and qualified as Chartered Tax Adviser in 1985. In 1988 I set up an accountancy practice as a 2 partner firm with 5 staff, which grew to 22 staff. During that period I advised mainly small owner managed businesses which included applying for grants in various forms for some of those businesses. In 2005 I went to work predominantly in industry as a Part-time Finance Director for companies specialising in property tax consultancy, and in 2009 moved to working in industry as Part-time Finance Director to several businesses. In 2014 CHILYPEP invited me onto the board to add strength on the financial side of the charity.
