I head up the accounts and tax department here at The Peloton and have a passion for all things business.
Despite being a born and bred in Cornwall, I studied Economics at Bath University, before heading to London to train and qualify a Chartered Accountant with KPMG. For part of my time at KPMG I managed audits of various companies, and during this time I picked up a passion for getting under the bonnet of the business machine – identifying what makes it tick and, ultimately, succeed.
I returned to Cornwall in 2014 and dived right into the culture of The Peloton, immediately introducing ‘Banger Friday’, which has been a staple here ever since! I consider myself very fortunate to be part of such a welcoming, positive and innovative environment, and working within a company that takes such an active interest in all aspects of our clients’ operations. I am convinced that it’s this involvement and breadth of services, coupled with technical competence, that enables The Peloton to offer above and beyond the norm for accountancy firms.
I have run the accounts team here at The Peloton for the past couple of years, and much of my working day is spent overseeing the operations of the department, as well as managing my own portfolio of clients. This includes advising on various technical issues and challenges, as well as providing insight into the financial and operational performance of their businesses. One thing that The Peloton prides itself on is our ability to analyse and interpret the performance of a business, and my experience here is a fantastic asset to the company. I specialise in the healthcare sector, with a specific focus on dentistry and chiropractic. This can be credited (initially at least!) to being surrounded by dental professionals in my personal life – my hygienist/therapist wife Aimey being one of the main ones!
Outside of accountancy, I am getting to grips with family life following the birth of my son, as well as fudging my way through a number of overly ambitious DIY projects. As a keen sports nut, I spread myself pretty thinly across as many sports as I can. Rugby is a major passion of mine and, against my better judgment, I am starting to sign up to the occasional long-distance running event. I always considered myself to be built for sprinting but, in keeping with our mentality here, challenging conventional wisdom is never a bad idea.
