What I have done…

My career started as an office junior in an accounting practice, where I worked my way through to a senior level over seven years. This is where I met Martyn and a long standing friendship was formed, leading the chance to run the finances of his, then small, family-run business. Over the last decade I’ve played my part in helping establish MKT Computer Brokers Ltd as one of the leading companies in its supply of refurbished IBM equipment.

Things started in a very small office space (OK, it was a garage) but the business has successfully grown to a warehouse with its own engineering facilities – a feat that certainly had its fair share of financial challenges. It’s great to have seen the subsequent start and growth of Maxime too. During my time here I have even developed an understanding of the equipment which has enabled me to be more hands on, helping with small engineering jobs, as well as acquiring my forklift license.

What I do now…

I control all aspects of the finances of Maxime, ranging from simply raising orders and invoicing to debt chasing, cash flow management, VAT returns, payroll, commission reporting and year-end accounting.

What I do for fun…

I enjoy all forms of sport and exercise, especially cardio vascular work.

I also enjoy socialising with friends, however with a young family most of my spare time is spent enjoying and spending time with them.

What I bring to Maxime…

I’ve been with the business for a long time, so I have to say experience!

As well as my financial expertise I guess I can also offer advice, or at least be a sounding board, for Martyn’s business plans.  Oh, and be living proof that accountants can be fun.
