Leo joined ABG in 2015 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in January 2019 with first time passes. Leo spent 3 years in the Audit & Accounts department, before making the switch to OFA to spend more time working with owner-managed businesses and SMEs. Leo enjoys the duality of utilising efficient cloud software to provide efficient compliance services, while maintaining technical competence to be able to advise on more complex accounting treatments & tax issues.

Day/Clients/Deliverables/Help clients

Leo specialises in onboarding our newest clients, to ensure that systems and processes are embedded seamlessly for the smooth and painless transition. Leo also works with a broad portfolio including: media, professional services, tech, SAAS and property. He works closely with his clients to provide timely reporting and advice to not only help them to meet their deadlines, but to provide actionable insights to help them grow their business and profitability. Leo believes that small and/or growing businesses face a paradox whereby they either neglect their finance function leaving them unable to make informed decisions, or conversely the owner-manager ends up spending too much time working in their business and not on their business. Leo endeavours to provide clients with certainty in their finances, so they can focus on what they do best.


In his spare time Leo loves going to gigs, gaming and trying to stay active. He loves playing and watching all manner of sports from golf to Muay Thai. Leo proudly player-manages the ABG 5-a-side football team and chairs the post-match debriefs.
