“I started off my career as a legal executive – I trained for three years and then swapped into doing accountancy, my Dad was a chartered accountant and it was all I wanted to do, I had no idea what it was, but I knew it was what I wanted to do.
It was in the early nineties and they were getting a lot of companies that needed help with liquidations. It was time driven and I was quite good with spread sheets so when they asked me to set up some spread sheets, I did them quickly and as I asked a lot of questions, I learnt a lot about insolvency. I was due to go off and do my chartered accountant exams but decided to do my insolvency exams instead, it was a cross between the legal and accounting side of things, which I really enjoyed.”
