At Work

Rob hails from Yorkshire and trained and qualified with Armstrong Watson.  Now based in Skipton, Rob spent 20 years in Leeds where he headed up the business services team.  As a founder member, Rob sits on the ACCA's National Roundtable for Media and Entertainment in London.  Rob counts many actors and writers amongst his clients and has a skill for helping those with 'accountaphobia'.  Apart from media clients, Rob has an extensive portfolio of clients in sectors including construction, IT, recruitment and haulage.

At Play

Outside of work Rob enjoys spending time with family and friends and, like many dads, runs a taxi firm for his two daughters!  Rob is a keen follower of sport and has a passion for the great outdoors.


After having taken the decision to diversify part of the farming business into a visitor attraction, Armstrong Watson spent a great deal of time in helping us with the financial planning; in areas of budgets, costings, staffing numbers, wages etc. This then formed part of our business plan which was submitted to Defra in applying for a Rural Enterprise Grant. Thankfully, we successfully received a grant, without which the Hesketh Farm Park would never have happened.
