Meet the team.
Director - Doncaster
Hi my name is Michael and I am director of the Northern Accountants office in Doncaster, and since joining I have been proud to work with a team of people that shares a collective vision for the future.
One of the best things about working at NA is the fact it’s always busy, which means we have to effectively manage our workload and client expectations – and that’s a challenge I really enjoy.
Outside of work, I have a busy home life – and am married with two children. I also have two cats called Oscar and Felix.
