If you weren’t an accountant, what would you be?

“I have always loved sport but as I’m now too old to be a professional sportsman it would have to be an involvement in sports science.”

I am the Chairman of Forrester Boyd and qualified as a chartered accountant in February 2000. I have been with Forrester Boyd since February 2003, after joining from the Leeds office of an international accountancy firm. I was appointed as a partner of the practice in October 2008.

I have a varied client portfolio consisting of small unincorporated businesses through to large companies and groups. I am one of the firm’s audit partners with audit clients ranging from owner managed businesses through to UK subsidiaries of international publicly listed groups. I also have significant experience in specialist audits including charities and academies.

I am a member of the UK200Group Corporate Finance Panel, is also responsible for the corporate finance work across the firm covering the following specialist services such as business disposals, mergers and acquisitions, management buy-outs and buy-ins, financial and tax due diligence, business/share valuations and raising finance.


I am a keen cyclist and regularly take part in cycling challenges to raise money for charity. I also enjoy spending time with my young family and in particular watching my boys competing and playing football and tennis. I also enjoy watching football and I am a Leeds United season ticket holder.
