In leading the VAT & Customs advisory services at Fortus, I mainly advise CFOs, FDs and Business Owners on critical issues, where practical solutions need to be found and successfully implemented.
My career’s spanned twenty five years to date, mainly at ‘big 4’ accountancy firms, giving me valuable insight and experience across industry sectors, with specialisms in Property and Construction. This has mainly involved working closely with clients to reduce costs on construction projects and property developments. Before joining Fortus, I led a national VAT practice at a top twenty firm for over five years. My goal’s always been to make VAT understandable for clients, and in doing so, working together to make a real difference to the long term success of their businesses.
After growing up on the west coast of Scotland, I came down to London for work in 2000. Outside of work, I regularly run, and my two young children also keep me active with regular football matches, as a keen sense of competition seems to run in the family! I’m a bit of a real ale fan, living near the headquarters of CAMRA, and when the time permits, meet with friends to enjoy a pint or two!
