The Directors

Chris Kane

I qualified as a chartered accountant with KPMG at the age of 22 and shortly thereafter joined a medium sized independent accountancy practice in which I progressed to being the senior partner.

I have spent the last 40 years delivering proactive value-added advice to entrepreneurial owner managed businesses in terms of commercial strategy and holistic fiscal planning.

In my non working time I enjoy the outdoor life walking my dog (Sparky) with my wife, Carole and our family. I attend the gym regularly, support with passion Stoke City Football Club, travel the world and go to the theatre as often as possible.

I fully support my wife in her voluntary work for the local children's hospice,Donna Louise Trust.
