Our team is ably headed by Peter May, who has been in practice since 1985. In 2005, he took the leap to branch out on his own, with the vision of taking the accounting practice in a different direction. He wanted to foster client loyalty, challenge the status quo by reviewing and considering tried and tested approaches, and considering whether there was a ‘better way’.
Since formation, the team Peter has assembled remains dedicated to refining and improving its approach, resulting in an offering that is unique and industry leading. The diverse, hugely competent and passionate team of industry experts share a collective skill set that enables a collaborative workplace committed to knowledge sharing and continually looking for ways to innovate and improve.
