In his own words

“Since qualifying with KPMG, I’ve been lucky enough to gain experience as both a Non-Executive and executive across a range industries and size of businesses. I love working with entrepreneurial people and businesses and at GovGrant we are very privileged to work with a huge range of them. We really enjoy helping them on that journey and I hope my knowledge across a broad range of issues proves to be valuable to clients large and small.”
