Daniel joined the Charnwood team in August 2017 having previously worked at another local firm of accountants. His route to FCCA qualified status came by the AAT route and then moving on to the ACCA qualification where his training took him from junior to Audit manager.
During his time in practice he has worked with a wide range of clients of various sizes and industries and with the audit work this has enabled him to get a deeper understanding of how clients operate and undertake their activities. Through this he realised he had a passion for assisting clients with their internal systems to not only help with their day to day reporting but also to ensure they are compliant and efficient with their financial reporting obligations.
Since moving to Charnwood Daniel has continued his development and forming close working relationships with his portfolio of clients that has lead to increased exposure to other types of audit work such as Grant audits (working with clients who have funding from innovate through to more complex grants from various European funding initiatives), solicitors accounts rules audits in accordance with SRA rules. In addition to these services he also continues to provide support to clients and their partner contact on accounting and basic tax issues to help them achieve their business and personal goals.
Daniel has continued in the audit manager role here at Charnwood that he shares with Karen Leishman. He is a key part of the audit team and is keen to help assist and support the other qualified staff members as much as possible on their files to ensure we continue to maintain a high standard of working. Daniels approach is that he strives to deliver not only the compliance aspect of the work but focusing more on the added value approach to undertaking audit assignments to ensure clients continue to get the best service and advice possible for their circumstances.
Life outside of work revolves firstly around the family with his wife and two children which keep him out of trouble…..most of the time. In his spare time since retiring from local football Daniel enjoys both the social and competitive aspect of running for his local club and is usually training hard for whatever his next goal may be, whether it is a marathon, half marathon or any other endurance event.
His goal is to one day get a championship starting place at the London marathon, which involves achieving a time below 2 hours 45 minutes and then go on to complete the world marathon majors which comprises of 6 marathons located around the world.
