Back in 1994 I gained a joint honours degree in Law and Political Science from the University of Wales. Following on from University I worked for Marks and Spencer as a Commercial Manager on their graduate management scheme. What a great year I had with M&S, but decided I hadn’t finished with studying and returned to University to undertake a Post Graduate Diploma in International Relations Theory.
Once I got all the studying out of my system, I joined a small firm of Chartered Accountants in East Manchester, starting my training contract in 1996 and qualifying in 1999. A very enjoyable spell working for an in International firm of Chartered Accountants, working between offices in Manchester and London followed, which was a great experience that led me to the decision to break out on my own.
I established The Buxton Partnership in 2000 and have enjoyed building it up from an empty desk and a telephone to the business it is today. I have passion for working with entrepreneurs of all kinds, applying all the best practices I have witnessed over the years and marrying them to effective and robust tax planning to maximise my client’s wealth and business satisfaction.
Outside of business, the passion continues playing and watching lots of team sports, especially football, rugby, cricket, through to my love of live music, socialising with friends and family.
I reside in the Cheshire countryside with my partner, our children and a menagerie of animals. I love the fact that our house is always full of friends and family. I like to go to bed at the end of each day knowing I have done my best in all my endeavours and live by my family motto… Do it with thy might, else not at all!
