What makes Leathers such a great place to be a part of?
For me, it’s the employee focus and making you feel part of the team. It makes you feel that you are making a difference and having an impact in your role.
Aside from number crunching, what do you see as key to accountancy?
Building a good working relationship with the client/clients and therefore foundations for trusting relationship.
What do you consider to be the most common misconception of accountants?
That we are boring bunch, solely focused on the numbers and very much a male dominated world. Its great that Leathers actively breaks these moulds and stereotypes.
What do you do when you aren’t being an accountant?
I am keen runner and I am actively engaged in the local athletics scene. I have completed over 13 marathons and travelled the world doing races.
