Tim O'Connell Head of Outsourced accounting services Reading +44 (0)1189 559 183

I have worked for Grant Thornton for over 20 years and have worked primarily in outsourcing throughout most of that time. I lead our service to many high-profile clients including international accounting assignments and UK subsidiaries of overseas companies. I have experience of working with clients across a broad range of industries including technology, property, retail and financial services.

I have extensive experience of working with companies which are establishing operations in the UK for the first time, handling the various compliance and registration requirements, overseeing the set-up of processes, taking overall charge of on-going delivery of services and acting as a point of contact for the client.

After so many years I can genuinely say that I still enjoy and get a great buzz from the challenges which each day presents and the variety which working in outsourcing provides. It is brilliant to see a business which I helped at its inception, develop and grow into a large and successful venture.

When I'm not at work I can be found relaxing with my family, out on a golf course, watching a variety of sports, at the cinema or pottering in my garden.
