Meet The Team


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."

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.


Simon brings over 20 years of practise and industry experience to the team, including broad commercial and financial knowledge, particularly in the fashion and creative industries. With many roles under his belt, Simon previously worked as the Finance Director at Huntsman on Savile Row. Prior to joining Ten Forward, Simon spent 10 months in Mendoza learning Spanish and the art of wine making. A keen sports player, Simon enjoys tennis and squash, and once got a hole in one! In 5 years, Simon wants to tick the final item off his bucket list, ready to start a new one.

Head of Technical Services

Suneesh has over 14 years’ experience within the media and entertainment industry. His 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 clients and staff. When he is not stressing about work, he is either stressing over the next country he wants to visit or when Liverpool will next win a trophy…

Head of Operations

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!

Head of Strategy

Ellie knows Ten Forward Finance inside out. Covering all things digital, Ellie is the absolute knowledge base. While keeping on top of internal projects keeps Ellie busy, which she loves, when she’s not at work she attends to her second love, shopping!

Client Manager

Canberk’s passion for increasing our client’s wealth definitely shines in his role as Client Manager. 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.

Senior Accountant

Christine loves a challenge, and she never quits when she has tough new work thrown her way. Christine spends a lot of her time completing your year-end accounts and training other team members. With heaps of passion and patience, she encourages the team to be the best they can be and develop their skills to the fullest.

Sunayna will examine your accounts with a fine-tooth comb, so be prepared to be blown away by the incredible changes that Sunayna will make when it comes to your finances!

Office Administrator

Making sure the office is sparkling clean and tidy, client’s paperwork is in order and we are well stocked with coffee is part of the routine as our administrator. Claire enjoys working closely with the team and being able to assist everyone with her creative problem-solving skills. At Ten Forward Claire enjoys learning new things every day, and outside of work she enjoys going to the cinema and summer evenings in the pub garden!

Oh, and next time you see him ask him to sing for you – he’s pretty good!

Client Manager

Super-organised Cherry thrives on beating deadlines while keeping the client’s needs at the centre of her focus. If the client isn’t happy, then neither is she. Since working at Ten Forward, Cherry has learned to embrace change, as adapting to client’s needs and new technologies is at the heart of what we do. Globe-trotting adventurer, Cherry, has travelled to every continent except the Antarctic (it’s on the list!), and loves planning the next road-trip with husband, Luke, preferably with a Rhubarb gin in hand!

They play a crucial part in the Ten Forward Family and provide invaluable support to our Client Managers in delivering exceptional, personal service to all our clients. Damini loves to learn and is working towards being a fully certified chartered accountant over the coming years.

Accounting Apprentice

Mishani has made a great start to her career in accounting, and her thirst for knowledge and attention to detail makes her an asset to our team of apprentices. Outside of work, Mishani loves making soaps, baking, and playing with her dog in the park. If she doesn’t enter the Great British Bake Off, we are sure Mishani will be smelling the sweet smell of success as an accountant before long!
