About the author

Hi I’m Stuart and I head up our Manchester office after previously overseeing the UK cloud accounting roll out at a top 20 accounting firm. 

I’ve been an accountant for the last 15 years, but my life changed 5 years ago when I went to Xerocon for the first time and was blown away by what Xero and the cloud apps could do for my clients.

Since then I’ve been focused on using cloud technology to help business owners achieve more and have moved over 1,000 businesses to Xero. Only 2 of those have been failures, which people always ask about but nobody ever asked about the 998+!

I also work with a wide variety of the cloud apps in the ecosystem, so even if you’re already on Xero, I can often add more functionality, whether debt chasing apps, cashflow forecasting or point of sale systems I’m happy to help.

I tend to work with businesses that:

-Have turnover between £500k and £5 million 

-Want to grow and want to see their accountant more than once a year

-Want to make the most of tech to automate the way the work and improve efficiencies

I absolutely love what I do and have been so close to getting a Xero tattoo on multiple occasions. Outside or work I love a good board game (too nerdy?) and do a fair bit of running although I’m not as fast as I used to be!
