meet the team …
After training and qualifying with PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) back in the 90s, Rob gained experience through a range of roles in industry and practice before deciding to set up Accountwise in 2004.
His vision was to to combine the rigorous standards he had learned with the big accountancy firms with a more personal approach that he could bring to his own practice. He is passionate about taking the financial stress, hassle and pain away from his clients, whilst ensuring that their money works hard for them (in both their personal and business finances).
He is a coffee-loving, number-crunching accountant who enjoys fitting his ski-ing, mountain-biking and two young sons around his numbers.
Diana also trained and qualified at PWC before becoming a manager in their audit department.
After taking time out to look after her son, Diana is back in practice where she looks after a range of client work and enjoys delving into financial challenges to create solutions for clients.
Diana spends her weekends playing her guitar, and is currently contemplating running her first marathon.
