Steve Olley started his journey in accountancy in 1967 when he started a part time job whilst studying for a Maths Degree at Manchester University.
He soon impressed the Director and started studying towards his Chartered Accountant qualification.
Steve moved around between different industries and trades, even working in Spain and Mallorca, to get as much experience with different businesses as he could (including a few iffy businesses!)
When he arrived back in the UK in 1976 as a Group Financial Controller for a Property Group which he helped to expand over the years, he had his first experience using an Amstrad computer. And therefore experience of accounting software that was around at that time.
Having tried various accounting software with faults, Steve came across Sage and has never looked back. In 1985 he set up Simply Computing and became a reseller of Sage (making him the longest serving member of Sage!)
In 2012, Steve decided to join forces and become part of A4G’s family and re-branded as Simply Sage.
But instead of gently retiring, our team ended up giving him another 300+ Sage clients to work with. This contract is still ongoing with no sign of Steve slowing down, especially with the new Making Tax Digital legislation.
