Corporate Finance Director

Call 01325 349700


Career history
I’ve worked for a number of accountancy practices throughout the region and enjoyed a wide variety of roles including audit, accounts and corporate finance.

I joined Clive Owen LLP in 2015 and became an Associate Director in 2017 and a Director in April 2020.


Experience and expertise
I’ve got over 20 years’ experience in accounting practice and worked with a wide variety of businesses across many different sectors.
I’ve successfully completed a number of transactions including corporate acquisitions, MBO’s, MBI’s, disposal mandates and growth capital investments.

Professional memberships/directorships
Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

Corporate social responsibility
I am on the board of the CIMA Tees Valley committee and assist with the organising of local events and training opportunities for students.

Career highlights
Every successfully completed deal I’ve been involved in has been a highlight. It’s a fantastic feeling when a deal is completed and you have a happy, very satisfied client.

Did you always want to be an accountant?
During my mid-teens I got fed up of studying for exams so I asked my family and careers adviser what occupation I could go into which didn’t require any more exams after I left school. I was told to become a Postman as it didn’t require me to sit any more exams and it was better than walking the streets (genuine story – honestly!).

After a couple of years of planning to become a Postman, I realised that it wasn’t the role for me and I stumbled across accountancy (and faced the joys of studying for a load more exams…)

Hobbies and interests
I enjoy spending time with my family and I have two young children which keep me more than occupied.

I enjoy most sports in particular football. My Dad introduced me to Middlesbrough FC back in August 1985 (I’ve never forgiven him) and I’ve been attending matches ever since.
