With more than 18 years' experience of floating, financing and auditing international contract and permanent recruitment businesses, I am passionate about supporting my entrepreneurial clients as they grow, and helping them to realise their strategic and personal ambitions – while having fun along the way.

I lead our business support services industry group, with a particular focus on the recruitment sector, although I also have significant experience working with retailers and technology businesses, and am an international listed company specialist.

During my career I have worked across our audit and advisory business units, and also spent a year on secondment with HSBC with their leverage and corporate banking teams. This wide experience – inside and outside of practice – has given me a fuller appreciation of the needs of my client base and how to support them as they grow. It's has also given me the opportunity to work in a number of fantastic and diverse teams.

Working with people to maximise their potential through coaching and mentoring is a key reason I come to work in the morning. I've held the staff partner role within London audit since 2008 and am a practising coach. This, along with the variety and challenge of being in an ambitious growing practice with a quality client base and awesome people, means I look forward to making a positive difference every day.

My family are important to me and so spend my spare time with my wife Nicola and two children – usual taxi service to clubs, parties and soft play. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
