Who’s Who?

Introducing the Who’s Who? corner of our monthly Newswire…

Each month we’ll interview one of the team here at KN to tell you a bit more about themselves and their role….after all, everyone loves a good nosey don’t they?!

Neil Wood – Senior Manager, Business Services

Neil joined the firm recently in October 2020 and works across the Business Services and Audit teams providing accounting, audit and general business advisory services to small and medium sized corporate clients.

Tell us a bit about your role and the firm

I like to build a close relationship with clients and be a trusted and approachable point of contact to assist with all accounting, tax and related problems and queries that business owners and directors may be faced with on a regular basis and to be more than just the bloke who sorts the accounts out once a year (as important as that is!).

Dealing with ad-hoc business advisory matters is what keeps the job interesting and often requires working closely with colleagues in other disciplines such as tax, payroll, financial planning etc. This is where KN really shines with a team full of technically excellent professionals who are always willing to help each other and put clients first.

If you weren’t an Accountant what would you be?

I had high-flying ambitions as a child and thought that I might one day be a pilot but a trip to the RAF careers office as a teenager soon put that to bed as colour-blindness is a definite no no when it comes to flying a plane not surprisingly.

What are you currently reading?

I don’t do a lot of reading and it takes me a while to get through a book except when I’m on holiday, so I’m still reading a book I received as a Christmas present, ‘Pushing the Boundaries – Cricket in the Eighties’ by Derek Pringle which I would recommend to anyone of a similar age who remembers the days when Botham, Gower, Willis etc. were players rather than ex-commentators.

Where’s your favourite place in the world?

I am not particularly well travelled and there are infinitely more places I haven’t been than I have been, however I have ticked a few Greek Islands off the list and they are a big favourite.  You can’t beat swimming in the sea or a good walk in the villages to work up an appetite for some authentic Greek food and a couple of Mythos in the evening.
