Carl qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1980 and was immediately offered a full partnership in a private accountancy practice. Over the following five years Carl developed the practice into the fastest growing independent firm in the South West of England and was subsequently appointed Managing Partner. In addition to managing the practice, Carl diversified into the Hotel and Leisure sector by acquiring a number of hotels and restaurants throughout the South West. In 1994 Carl established his own niche practice providing a one-to-one highly personal service to key clients which enabled him to further develop his specialism in Corporate Restructure and Debt Counselling. As well as being appointed a non-executive director with a number of his clients, Carl was also appointed Chairman of a Corporate Relocation and Logistics Company operating nationally throughout the UK. Carl’s specific strengths evolve around his desire to provide each client with an extremely personal and cost effective service covering all aspects of their individual business needs but in a very accessible manner.
