Director of Pierce Group Limited providing proactive business and strategic advice with guidance and support to SME’s and Owner Managed Businesses helping them achieve their personal and business goals.
Joined Pierce in 2002 and qualified as a Chartered accountant in 2006. Promoted to Associate Director in 2014 and to the Board of Directors in 2015.
Whilst working in all areas of general practice I have extensive experience in audit, specialist assurance assignments and financial reporting.
I work closely with my clients getting to know their business and understand their personal and corporate goals.
Working with SME’s and Owner Managed Businesses is much more than compliance, it is the added value services, tax and strategic planning that really matters and makes a difference.

Enjoy spending time with my young family.

‘We recently moved to Pierce after being impressed by Jimmy and what he and Pierce could offer. The switch from our previous accountant was made easy and since which time we have benefitted from corporate and personal planning which we have not had previously. Jimmy is currently assisting us with how best to structure our expansion overseas from both a tax and commercial perspective. We have been very impressed with Jimmy’s approach and advice and really look forward to working with him in the future as we look to grow our business further’. Julie Lawrenson, Director, P E Pipe Technologies Limited
‘Jimmy has assisted NLTG for a number of years with our audit services and so much more. He has recently assisted with some strategic planning and has just completed a specialist assurance report for the company. Jimmy has provided invaluable support to the company over the years and is highly regarded by both our operational and non-executive directors. Me and my team enjoy working with Jimmy and highly recommend him and Pierce for your accountancy and business advisory services’. Jim Harkness MBE, Managing Director, North Lancs Training Group Limited
“We made the decision to move to Pierce because we were impressed with the way Jimmy wanted to really understand our business and how he and his team could help. Before we joined Pierce all the focus was about getting the accounts completed. Whilst Jimmy gets this important element of the work done in a very efficient manner, the focus is now much more about how we can build and develop our business; we even have our own ideas challenged in a positive way. Running a business is often difficult which is why it’s great to have this kind of support and help that’s always available to you.” Chris Bardin, Director, Taylor Patterson Group
