John started working in Accountancy in 1988. He completed his training in London from a firm based in the South East and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1992.
In 1996 John obtained his practicing certificate and became a partner in a firm based in the South East. John was drawn to Cornwall in 1998 and worked in a Truro based practice for six years, progressing to partnership level. In 2004 John and Sarah set up their independent practice, Sovereign Accounting Solutions. In the same year John was nominated for the ‘Rising Star’ category of the South West regional Chartered Accountant of the Year Awards. Subsequently John and Sarah have formed the payroll and bookkeeping arms of the practice, Sovereign Payroll Solutions and Sovereign Bookkeeping Solutions.
By 2014 the growth of Sovereign lead to the decision to re-locate the practice and John secured new business premises in Indian Queens. Outside of work, John is a keen football fan and is very proud to have been one of the coaches at Truro City Youth Football Club.
