Meet The Team

Teresa Bowe FCCA CTA

I started my working life training to be a tree surgeon, whist helping to run a family garden centre. During this time, I also started on a bookkeeping course to help me understand figures and to look after my self-employed boyfriends books.

Having found I was quite good at this, I went on to study for a professional accountancy qualification before taking it one step further and also gaining a tax qualification for good measure. My boyfriend never got his books done...........

I started CCF in March 2010 with a mission to provide clients with the best service possible. With the growth I have achieved to date and the team members that I have recruited, I feel that we are achieving this.

Michael Best FCCA

Michael joined the team at CCF in November 2015, as a fully qualified Chartered Certified Accountant, with over 14 years’ experience at another firm. Michael has already demonstrated that he has the Clients Come First attitude and has integrated well into the team.

His role includes working closely with clients on their accounts as well as helping to ensure that they keep the tax bills as low as possible.

When not accounting, Michael enjoys long distance walking and has competed in several 100 mile challenges.
