“If you would like to put names to faces…”
If only it was that simple.
We didn’t want the group shot of the staff looking embarrassed. Or the suits round the board-room table. Or the one with the computer – invariably not plugged in.
So, how about some nice individual photos?
Modesty – we forgot about modesty
Perfectly happy chatting to clients, old and new. Unflappable in a crisis. Always confident , always competent. Unfrightened by the Revenue. Even capable of putting off the most persistent salesmen politely. But worried about being exposed to a potential audience of billions. And the fame this might bring.
So it might be a little difficult to recognise the team from the photos they “approved” for the web. But don’t worry. In real life they are all much more colourful! (And, lately, perhaps, not quite so modest…)
Meet the team
Faye trained with Hilary Adams, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 2007.
Faye became a Director in 2010.
Coming from the area, Faye's local knowledge was a great help when Hilary Adams was deciding to open a Rochester office. Faye was convinced that the new firms springing up in the area would welcome our help. (The fact that it would drastically reduce her driving to work time is, of course, a complete coincidence.)
Medway City Estate is very much Faye's project. (She still has vast files of samples and costings, should you be furnishing an office yourselves...)
Along with Michael, Sarah and Dan, she makes up the accounts team.
Michael joined us as a fresh-faced school leaver in 2008 eager to learn the ways of an Accountant. In 2011 he became Chartered, and in 2015 he became a Director.
Along with Faye, Sarah and Dan, he makes up the accounts team.
Whenever you call or visit you are likely to meet our lovely front-of-house expert (and chief tea-maker) Rachel.
Rachel joined us in 1998 and is now part of the fixtures and fittings
Dan joined us in July 2018, and quickly became a key part of the firm. Along with Faye, Michael and Sarah, he makes up the accounts team
In 2007 along with the clients of Blezards we also acquired the expertise of Sarah.
Starting off as a part-time member of staff she quickly enjoyed our company so much she became full-time.
Specialising in, but not limited to, payroll, she makes up the accounts team, along with Faye, Michael & Dan.
Jackie joined in 2004 and, together with Rachel, formed a formidable partnership at front-of-house. After a short illness, Jackie sadly passed away in January 2021. She touched the hearts of all of us, and the office is a sadder place without her famous Jackie-isms.
