Manager – Accounts & Business Development
Andy has been working with PKB Accountants since leaving school 32 years ago and was their first ever Junior Accounts Clerk. In that time, Andy has seen massive changes in the company and industry.
Andy works with SME clients who sometimes refer to him as “the 5th emergency service” because of his experience in helping and advising this client group. He particularly enjoys working with owner managed SMEs, helping them achieve their personal and business goals – or as we say at PKB Accountants, “Aspire, Achieve, Enjoy”.
“I have enjoyed being part of an organisation that has evolved and grown into a forward-thinking, customer-focused accountancy practice. My roles are varied from accounting and auditing to teaching bookkeeping, which allows me to not only help prospects and clients alike, but also develop my own presentation skills. I network a lot, not only to find prospects for PKB Accountants, but more often than not, I am able to sign post the services and products of PKB Accountants clients to those in need.
The team I work alongside are one of the main reasons I have stayed with PKB Accountants. Strange as it may sound we do have a lot of fun.”
Having successfully climbed Kilimanjaro, Andy now wants to go to Camp Everest and in doing so, raise money for Help 4 Heroes. He also wants to coach and mentor people around motivation.
Andy has coached youth football for many years and won the ‘Sport in the Community Award’ for Surrey Heath Borough Council. He has done the London Marathon… twice! And completed 39 half marathons.
Andy enjoys a spot of running, coaching youth football, playing football, golf, gym, military history and drumming (he is an ageing rock drummer!).
What others say about Andy:
“I have used Andy for a number of years now and have always received excellent service. When we recently ran right up to the deadline for submitting accounts, Andy worked in the evening, over the weekend and early in the morning to ensure everything was done to meet the deadline. In my mindthis is well above the service you would expect and why I have had and will continueto have no hesitation in recommending Andy and his company to anyone. Andy you are a true Gent, thank you.” – Kieron Goron, Goron Graphics Ltd
“We wish to thank PKB Accountants and Andy Penfold in particular for dealing with a tax query in such an efficient and professional way, advising us of a way to reduce our tax burden by dealing with our proposals in a slightly different way to that which our bank had proposed” – Kenneth Edkins, Sherratt Electrical Services
