I have embarked on a new venture this year so it is fitting that I start a new blog to make a record of it and share some of my experience and experiences with others.
My background is as a Chartered Accountant, I trained with what was a middle size practice called Cooper Lancester Brewers in their Manchester office back in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. I qualified and moved straight into industry and after a time I progressed up to become Director of Finance and IT at Legion Security PLC.
I then ran a couple of my own businesses for 12 years including a Search Marketing business and then a Domain Registration Service. I gained a lot of experience in how to run a business of my own and how to be entrepreneurial, something that doesn’t come automatically to all Accountants.
After the sale of my last business in 2016 I returned to industry back as a Group Finance Director and now in 2019 I am what is known as a Portfolio Finance Director.
