It will be 5 years soon since I joined summ.it, after an experience in the National Airline Company and a Construction Company in Mauritius. I help with accounts and I do payroll – which is a never ending learning process. So far, summ.it has exceeded my expectation in terms of employee welfare.

I also enjoy fine food and few cocktails. Reading is also one of my passions.

About me:
I have worked for and been associated with summ.it for over 15 years predominantly working in Senior FD and board positions with clients. I became the full time Group MD of The Southerns Group in 2011 working closely with Andrew Jackson and the wider summ.it team to facilitate the growth of that business from a £15m to a £50m group through acquisitions and organic growth. We played pivotal roles in its eventual merger with Style & Wood plc and the creation of the £200m+ Extentia Group. I returned to work for summ.it directly in early 2019. I became a fellow of the ICAEW in 2014 and have a broad range of financial and commercial experience at board level. I particularly enjoy working with and helping recruit teams of talented people and formulating and implementing strategy for businesses to be more successful within finance and, where required wider commercial roles. I enjoy staying fit in my spare time, taking part in endurance events and working out in the gym. I also thoroughly enjoy watching Bolton Wanderers and socialising with family and friends.

I joined summ.it at the end of 2018, and am really enjoying working with the team. I left university having studied music, & started a driving job in a small private company. After the book-keeper left I somehow found myself taking over that job, and the rest, they say, is history! I have years of experience in similar roles working for different SME's. In my last job my role was split between finance & IT support, but I am now returning to a book-keeping role with summ.it. I have two kids who drive me mad, and in my spare time I enjoy tinkering with my Land Rover.

About me:
A lot of people think the numbers are boring, but it’s the basis of how businesses tick. It’s really rewarding when you give people a deeper understanding of what the numbers actually mean, and you can see they really value that insight. One day I’m looking at Lasers, and the next day I’m looking at cakes! You’re really a part of each team, and it makes the work mean more. When I’m not working I’m playing football, golf or maybe going for a walk and taking some photos. A lifelong Manchester United fan although that’s not something to be proud of these days!
