Helen Savage ACMA CGMA
Helen has had varied senior and finance director roles following her qualification as a Chartered Management Accountant. Consequently with her valuable experience she has seen at first-hand how not to run a company as well as how to run one!
Helen enjoys finding a happy balance between working hard for her clients and playing hard with her children. Helen is also a Trustee for the Joe Glover Trust, a charity close to her heart that links both Helen and Brian outside of Continuum.
Not professing to be a master chef, Helen’s been known to burn a boiled egg. Best stick to accountancy then…
Added to these and others, Brian has played pivotal FD roles with several companies in the new media field including flotations on the Nasdaq and AIM markets. He now sits on the board of several private companies as a Non Executive Director.
Described at various times as “The best FD outside London” and “The man every budding entrepreneur should turn to”, Brian prefers to describe himself as “The best roving midfielder Chelsea never had!” In addition to spending his spare time engrossed in his work with children’s cancer charity, the Joe Glover Trust, of which he is a trustee, Brian also manages the local cricket team.
His burning ambition? “To convince the authorities that small business really can function with common sense and integrity as opposed to reams of bureaucracy”.
Marie Lee FCCA
Aside from her first love of accountancy and all things financial, Marie supports the Indianapolis Colts who are an American football team in the NFL. She also loves listening to music and going to the cinema!
Head of Tax
With tax legislation becoming ever more complex, it’s important to have someone on your side who knows the rules and understands how HMRC thinks. Andrew describes his tax work as “half the time making sure clients don’t trip up and the other half of the time helping them to run”.
When he’s not reducing his client’s tax bills, Andrew spends a lot of time outdoors, playing golf enthusiastically if not well, taking part in cross-country obstacle races and helping with coaching at Southampton RFC.
As long ago as 1789, American politician Benjamin Franklin stated that “nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”. I can’t help with the first of those two but I’ll always do my best to help you minimise the second.
If Carol says she will do something, do it she will!
Rowena Jeanes ACA
Needless to say the tears, tantrums and hard work all gets too much sometimes, but at least she gets to go home at the end of a day to normality!!
Mandy has four children (including a husband!) and has a keen interest in sports such as golf and swimming.
