Successful entrepreneur, David CM Carter, has enjoyed a close working relationship with Rotherham Taylor for more than 30 years. Having built up two leisure businesses, subsequently selling one and floating the other on AIM, David went on to found one of the world’s leading CEO mentoring firms before exiting to a management buy-out.
David continues to run two businesses; a personal mentoring service and MyMentor – launched in 2017 – the world’s first ever digital mentoring service.
Recalling how the business relationship with Rotherham Taylor began, David said: “Michael Barton and I were both guests of a law firm at a networking event held at the Grand National and we immediately hit it off.”
“Since then Michael has been my trusted advisor and the team at Rotherham Taylor have provided me with a seamless service, looking after both my personal and business tax and accountancy needs, along with provision of a first class company secretarial service.”
“All my tax returns are completed by the team in plenty of time to make payments or file them with HMRC, as you would expect from a good firm of accountants, but Rotherham Taylor provide far more than a standard tax returns service.”
“As someone who has provided mentoring services to CEOs for many years, I recognise the value of receiving financial mentoring advice myself. Michael is extremely proactive. He’s always there to cover my back and constantly challenges me with ‘Have you thought about …?’ ideas to help me plan for the future.”
“Although Michael has been a constant presence throughout my 30 year relationship with the firm, I’m pleased to say that my dealings with the rest of the team are equally harmonious – Nick is my trusted aide for company secretarial matters and the auto-enrolment and VAT teams both provide a reliable and problem-free service.”
“This joined-up approach to client care is what makes our business dealings so successful. Over the years I have probably referred around 50 per cent of my clients to Rotherham Taylor.”
“As a mentor I share the stories of business people who have remarkable personal or professional journeys. It could certainly be said that a 30-year business relationship with the same firm of accountants – which has stood the test of time and is still going strong to this day – qualifies as one such remarkable professional journey.”
