I joined Shorts to manage the needs of a portfolio of owner managed business.  This covered everything from ensuring returns were filed on time, implementing and training on cloud software, and discussing key topics for the business.

As our Management Accounts and added value services have increased my role has developed and I am now responsible for ensuring that our Genus management accounts department provides our clients with high-quality management accounts, delivered with superb service and support.  As well as being focussed on ensuring the department is run efficiently, I also enjoy spending time with clients discussing how they can improve their businesses.

I ensure everything is produced to the Shorts standard and deadlines are met but my main area is building strong relationships with clients.  This allows us to deliver exactly what the client needs.

Previous to Shorts I trained at a large independent firm in Sheffield where I gained a vast amount of experience with small to medium-sized business covering services from audit and year-end compliance through to management reporting.  This range of experience with businesses from a variety of industries helps me when dealing with the clients I work with today.
