   Kym Needham FMAAT: Managing Director / Senior Accountant

Kym Needham, Company Director and Senior Accountant.I am married to Paul and have been since 2007. I have a daughter Olivia who was born in 2009 and she now keeps me very busy with her hectic dancing schedule. Born and bred in Heanor, I still live there today and take great pride in having the business on my local High Street. I love my job and it was always my ambition to have my own business which I achieved at the age of 26. I work a lot of hours which are sometimes very unsociable but in my spare time I enjoy shopping (especially for shoes and handbags), socialising with family and friends and burying my head in a book. I like to head abroad on my holidays a couple of times a year but I am just as happy in a field in my tent for weekends with family and friends as long as wine is involved. I am always keen to support local groups and charities both personally and through the business, I can often be found to be involved with fundraisers at the local Sunnyside Club for a variety of causes.

My husband also has two young children so I’m very busy but, when I can, I enjoy socialising with friends and family, and going on holiday.
