Daniel King

Finance Director
Daniel is an ACCA qualified accountant and has over 20 years’ experience in accounting and financial analysis. After leaving Bangor University with a BSc in Mathematics, he joined the accountancy profession, working for BDO Stoy Hayward, mainly auditing small to medium sized companies. It was here that he studied for his ACCA Accountancy Exams. After passing his exams, he moved to a smaller accountancy practice in Barnoldswick. This gave him an opportunity to deal with small companies and become more hands on with the directors and owners of these companies. In 2007, after deciding that he needed to challenge himself further, he opted to set up in practice by himself. He has gradually built his business since this time, dealing with sole traders, partnerships, charities and companies, and now has over 100 clients. It was through one of his clients that he became involved with Learning & Development Associates Ltd.
