He oversees the accounting side which includes the preparation of budgets and management/financial accounts as well as dealing with external entities such as banks etc.
Alan has lived and worked in the Exeter area for the majority of his career. After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, Alan spent over thirty years working in private practice in the city. At the point of retiring in 2006 Alan was the Senior Partner of a local firm of Chartered Accountants.
