Claire helps clients with hard accounting questions and supporting them on accounting for various transactions such as IPOs, de-listings, mergers and acquisitions.
Claire joined Azets in January 2021, having spent 19 years at KPMG where she worked across the Manchester and Leeds offices in both audit and accounting advisory.
Claire’s client experience is varied both in size, industry and ownership structure. For all her clients Claire enjoys learning about the business and working alongside the client teams.

Outside of work Claire lives with her partner Dave, who she met sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on a round the world yacht race. These days they watch a lot of sport rather than doing it, and despite living in Leeds own Scotland Rugby season tickets.
