Meet The Team

Nathan
Owner

Nathan is constantly driven by new ideas and challenging the status quo. It’s this revolutionary attitude that he takes to every client, helping them deal with the obstacles and challenges they face and solving them to help their businesses grow and thrive. In his own words, it’s all about “understanding what clients want, adapting to the environment, and helping them achieve their goals."

Amy
Practice Director

Amy is known for making things happen at Ten Forward. As our “secret weapon”, she helps deliver the personal and quality service we are known for, which we largely attribute to her inbuilt instinct for dissecting what our clients need and equipping the team with the skills and knowledge to deliver exactly that.

Suneesh
The Terminator

Suneesh’s favourite aspect of his role has always been solving complex problems and helping others, which makes him a perfect fit for Ten Forward Finance. He always makes the effort to relate to our clients and learn their business inside and out, which has often been praised by both clients and staff. Outside of work, Sunnesh likes to think he is a man of mystery… some things you have just got to keep secret!

Libby
Manager of Client services

With many strings attached to her position, Libby’s role is very much interlinked with a variety of different areas, but at the heart of that is providing a great client service with the same level of attention in a friendly manner. With that in mind, we’re certain that her job title doesn’t completely cover what Libby does, but in our defence, there isn’t one job title that can do that!

Tricia
HR and office management

It’s hard to pinpoint which nickname Tricia is best known for! “Doll”, “T” and “My little lovely” are the top three that are often thrown around the office, and it’s easy to understand why. However, “HR” doesn’t begin to describe her role here…Over the years Tricia has taken “Talent Management” to a new level, as she looks after our valuable people here at Ten Forward!

Nico
Bookkeeper

Rumour has it that Nico was sent from the future to help our clients fix their company ledgers. If that’s not the case, then Nico is simply an absolute pro when it comes to reviewing ledgers and ensuring our work is done to a high standard. When he’s not socialising, at the gym, or watching and talking about football, Nico is here making our office a happier place to be in.

Ellie
client management

Ellie knows Ten Forward Finance inside out. Covering client management, Ellie is the absolute knowledge base. While supporting our clients keeps Ellie busy, which she loves, when she’s not at work she attends to her second love, shopping!

Bhageshree
Assistant to the Senior Tax Accountant

Bhageshree is one of our most cheerful members of staff, and as someone working on self-assessments and year-end, she’ll often be chasing our clients for paperwork at the end of each tax year. She is great at supporting everyone on the team.

Natalie
trainee bookkeeper

Since starting as a trainee, Natalie has absorbed herself in many different aspects of our clients’ creative businesses. In doing so, she really shines when working on all things bookkeeping and accounts related. Even though Natalie is kept very busy with her studies for her AAT qualification, she always has time to bring laughter to the rest of the team.

Kayla
Trainee Bookkeeper

Kayla loves all things bookkeeping and effectively taking care of the small stuff so you can crack on with your business! With more than enough to do, Kayla is great at helping our clients and interacting with them on a daily basis, which falls perfectly in line with our team spirit! As one of our Aussies on the team, she is also passionate about all things that involve the sun, sand and surfing.

Ahmed
Senior Tax Specialist

Ahmed often gets asked the question, “how do I save tax?” to which he’s always replying, “by using my brilliant tax planning ideas!” It’s here where his passion shines through, with his role involving all things tax related, from HMRC investigations to self-assessments and tax advice. Ahmed strives to leave a legacy amongst his clients and has an informal and straight to the point can-do attitude that his clients love.

Clare
Bookkeeping Manager

Clare is fantastic at ensuring a happy and fulfilling work environment for the team, as well as encouraging them to work towards their dreams. Known for her organisational skills, she works to match you to the right team member, to make sure you get the best service possible from Ten Forward Finance! Outside of work, Clare is often seen having a good chat with friends with the odd glass of wine.

Blandine
Office Administrator

Blandine will often be the first person you’ll see when visiting us, and you can be confident in her ability to make you feel warm and welcomed. Even with a dream job title of “Creative Director”, Blandine’s role involves managing anything external for our clients, from events to paperwork, to some of the quirkier tasks like creating invitations and badges, which definitely fits with her number one hobby of drawing and painting!

Canberk
Bookkeeping Apprentice

Canberk’s passion for increasing our client’s wealth definitely shines in his role as bookkeeping apprentice. Whether he is helping our clients with self-assessment, assisting with auto enrolment or tax claims, he is great as thinking outside the box in order to solve your problems. When not in the office, he can often be found on the pitch with a football.

Eddie
Bookkeeper

Even though Eddie doesn’t hold his dream job of “Jedi Master”, you can rely on him for his many words of wisdom when providing assistance with bookkeeping and annual accounts. Eddie is fantastic at bringing the great culture we have internally to any dealings he has with clients, leaving you satisfied and confident that your problems are solved.

Lucy
Trainee Accountant

As our Trainee Accountant, Lucy currently assists our team with year-end accounts, bookkeeping, payroll and also produces management reports for big clients. Lucy is excited to be working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant, and is often seen to be very sporty and active both inside and outside the office.

Jonah
Apprentice

Jonah is another team member who doesn’t live up the “accountant” stereotype of doing boring accounts and sitting at a desk all day. As an apprentice with a passion for giving to and helping others (and also American Football), Jonah is one of our livelier team members, working with the team on tasks such as sales and purchase invoices and bank reconciliation. He’s also keen to let people know that he is half German and half Portuguese!
