BA Hons | Accountant

Christian has gone from impoverished student to owner of a status symbol car in the blink of an eye. He signed the contract before he had even received his first pay cheque.

Erika Vessey

Management Accountant

Erika tries to be down with the kids but has recently started to show her age after losing her car keys after a few glasses of prosecco. She has scared others into making her regular ‘crack’ coffees after revealing her previous life in the Navy. We all wonder what she keeps in that rucksack next to her desk…

Sam Mayes

Senior Management Accountant

Sam is as blunt as a bowling ball. He is also as sharp as a bowling ball. His personality is like a bowling ball; hard on the outside and softer on the inside. But don’t ask him ‘Do I look fat in this?’ as you may not get the answer you were hoping for!
