“At 16, I Ieft school, saw an advert in the paper for a clerical assistant in a local firm of accountants – and never looked back. I was the youngest qualified accountant of my generation back in 1991– honestly! Up to that point I only had a foundation course in accountancy, a B-Tech and three O’ levels. The reason I tell you this is because I have learned over time that effort, energy, and attitude make for a great accountant – not just a set of exam results.

We asked Carl: what pleases you most in your role?
“Something that I hear frequently – when someone joins us from another prestigious firm and after a couple of years, they say that they cannot believe how much they’ve learnt with us.”
