What’s your role here at A4G?

As the Managing Partner I can proudly say I have overseen 28 years of uninterrupted growth for A4G. We’ve done this by focussing on helping owner-managers deal with whatever challenge is preventing them from growing currently.

I’m also really proud of the recruitment and training programme we have developed which has helped countless trainees develop from school-leavers through to qualified accountants.

What are your specialisms?

Working with owner-managers to help make their business less dependent on them and running strategic planning days.

What is the top tip you’d share with every business owner?

A business relying on people-based solutions will only get you so far. At some point you must embrace systems.

Tell us a random fact about you

I would have loved to have been the drummer in The Libertines!

Who inspires you?

I’m always looking for new inspiration but Sir Bobby Robson’s decency, honesty and continual desire to grow even in to his 70s make him one of my heroes. Plus, I met him twice!
