Lauren Beard MAAT
Lauren joined us from school and has already qualified as a member AAT. She is studying for her Chartered Accountancy qualification and is a Senior Account Manager looking after some of our Key Accounts.
Quickbooks Online used her photo to promote their national event next year, she’s that popular!
Sarah Stonham MAAT
Sarah worked in industry before joining our practice so she knows the importance of accurate data for making business decisions and paying suppliers.
She is a qualified AAT member. She is also a ProAdvisor Certificated user of Quickbooks Online and is helping reinforce our cloud software solution and training clients to get the best out of it. Sarah is part of our MTD management team so when it goes live she will be ready.
Darren Tanner
Darren has extensive experience in accounts and tax and is a Senior Account Manager.
He has fresh ideas on how we can improve and we look forward to growing with him. He has been instrumental in developing our practice management solution
Morgan Ratford
Morgan came to us for some work experience and ended up staying!
She is studying for her AAT qualification and is just finishing the level 4 stage via an apprenticeship. We have big plans for her in the future and she is a breath of fresh air in the office. She has learnt so quickly that she has her own portfolio of clients to look after already.
Her Chartered Accountancy studies start early next year.
Pauline Spencer
Pauline, Mrs Spencer performs a vital part-time role carrying out anti-money laundering checks on new clients and issuing engagement letters to those same people.
In fact, there have been so many new engagement letters sent recently that she doesn’t have time for much else.
Joe Salmons
Joe joined us in the last year, having worked in industry. His conversion to working in a practice took hardly any time and he’s now adding to our support team for clients.
Level 4 AAT is almost completed and then he will progress through more professional exams.
Ellie Richardson
Ellie has taken on the task of learning payroll and providing a service to over 100 clients, whilst supporting the team in other areas.
She’ll most likely be the first person you speak to on the telephone if you call the office.
Ellie is also taking her AAT exams.
Tash Spencer
Should it have been a surprise that The Boss’s daughter followed him into accountancy? Well, it was to him and her but we’re happy having her onboard.
She is providing a specialised support service to one of our larger clients and carrying out bookkeeping and other tasks as needed.
Conor Williams MAAT
Conor was already a qualified AAT member when he joined our ranks and will start his Chartered Accountancy career path in the New year.
He worked for a larger practice previously where he was more focussed on certain areas of accountancy but he’s now relishing learning about personal tax and how payroll works and managing clients.
