Although I am a chartered accountant by profession, my main interest is in software and technology - in particular how it can be used to make businesses work smarter and more profitably.

In 1995 I resigned as one of four partners in an independent accountancy firm to set-up my own firm, Pearson & Associates based in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

At various times I have also been part-time finance director of 2 other businesses - Taskmaster, a staff agency, and Merit Software, a payroll and invoicing software developer.

My current focus is on Checkmybooks. Checkmybooks is client records checking and correction software for accountants. It's unique and will revolutionise the way accountants undertake year-end compliance work in the future.

Movemybooks is a data conversion service, for businesses moving from desktop to cloud accounting software.

Happily married to Julie, I am 50 and live in West Yorkshire with a 18 year old son and a 6 year old golden retriever. We have 4 other adult boys who float in and out as their social lives permit. (Ages all as of November 2014).
