Our founder worked in industry for 16 years before opening Valley Accountancy, qualifying first as an accounting Technician then a chartered accountant with the ACCA. Starting out as an accounts clerk in 2004 and rising rapidly through various positions, he earned himself a role as Finance Director of a USD 50m turnover Oil and Gas inspection company in 2012 at the age of 27.
Delivering financial processes and strategies to regional managing directors and being pivotal in the expansion into markets in North and South America, Africa, Europe and Asia would be impressive on any CV, however, that was not all that was achieved in the 7 year appointment. The owner of the company was also a serial entrepreneur and had created some 15 companies in that time in all different sectors of which Andrew had a hand in them all. The companies were in Software Development, Cyber Security, Training, Fast Food, Music, Law, Sportswear, Marketing, Physiotherapy and Sports coaching.
Identifying a big gap in accountancy, Andrew established Valley Accounting in 2018 and with his experience has been changing the way in which accountants service their clients with industry knowledge, experience and advice.
