With more than 20 years' experience in audit, I am the engagement lead on a number of clients across the north-west region, which include large privately held, private-equity-backed, AIM-listed and UK operations of international groups. I have extensive experience in all aspects of assurance, specialising in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), listing rules and corporate governance.

I have a focus in a range of sectors including technology, social housing, manufacturing, construction and business support services.

I am proud to be the international relationship lead for the north-west region, acting as the point of contact for our member firms within Grant Thornton's international network. I also advise several private and public corporations reporting under both US GAAP and IFRS.
