My Experience

I joined Seymour Taylor as a trainee in January 2003, coming from a background in the wider financial services industry. I completed my AAT and subsequent ACA exams, qualifying in 2006, whilst progressing within the firm and became a Director in 2016. During that time, I have gained a wealth of experience with clients and businesses of all sizes, including playing a key part in our role within the Hampden Group.
