A member of both ICAEW and ACCA, Darren is also head of academies and, outside of work, sits on the audit committee at Abingdon and Witney College.


Darren’s work covers a wide variety of sectors including Food, Transport, Electronics, Technology, Hotels, Retail, Hospitality and more.

Current Strategic Projects:

As part of the audit and accounts process Darren advises clients of current and emerging issues. He makes sure that every eventuality is discussed and that his clients are fully informed. Darren seeks to give clear and concise advice leaving no ambiguity as to the best course of action. He also attends board meetings for some of his non-audit clients to advise on sector developments and facilitate change within the business.

Recent projects include:

  • Advising on group structures and how to finance a new investment

  • Review of the existing accounting system and provide implementation of a new accounting system for one of his clients.
