Stephen has over 35 years in the accounting practice with the last 24 specialising in financial due diligence, advising a wide range of clients as they either add to or realise value in their businesses. He is also a member of our board.

With a wide ranging sector knowledge, a passion for owner managed businesses and with a strong reputation for providing inciteful advice to clients, he is one of the most experienced due diligence providers in the region and enjoys delivering value to clients.

When asked why he enjoys his job, Stephen says:

The challenge of understanding what makes a business tick in a short timeframe and the skill of articulating that and the associated transactional risks to our clients is a genuine joy as is working with such a wonderful team of professionals on a daily basis.  If we can add value to our clients and have some fun in the meantime, then there can be no better environment in which to work.

Stephen also likes to put a bit back into society and has spent the last 15 years involved in various roles with Wakefield District Housing, one of the largest social housing providers in the UK.

Outside of work, Stephen relaxes with an evening stroll with the family dogs, skilfully dodging all runners and cyclists along the way.
