Who We Are

Meet the Crew

Many accountancy firms employ a mix of accountants and those who just specialise in certain aspects, such as bookkeeping or payroll.

We only employ ACCA and AAT trained accountants, so all of our Client Managers and Advisors have the knowledge and skills required to guide you on all financial aspects.

Miguel Calabrese

MD and Business Growth Manager

Out on the frontline with our clients, Miguel helps business owners grow their profits, save time and keep more of their hard-earned money. He offers his expertise to ease the headaches caused by everyday challenges and has a passion for inspiring business owners to look at their businesses with a different perspective to see what opportunities can be uncovered. The glass is always half full with Miguel.

Miguel's accounting top tip:

“Keep your financial information up to date so that you can rely on it to make informed management decisions. Also, when preparing forecasts, always work on 13 months not 12, as it gets you thinking about the next year.”

Emma Duda

Senior Client Manager

Emma has a real passion for learning about our clients’ businesses and supporting them during their early stages of set-up and growth. Her ability to step back and see the overall picture, and keep an eye on the detail at the same time, makes her the ideal person to work with clients through the day-to-day challenges of running a business, whilst always looking out for tax saving opportunities.

Emma’s take on a common mistake made by business owners:

“I often see business owners using their company bank account as their own, rather than taking a salary or dividend and living from that. The company is a separate entity and should be treated as such, so it can come as a surprise when they have to pay the money back and/or pay tax on the loan.”

Nancy Chad

Senior Client Manager

Nancy is a baton twirler extraordinaire and ‘honorary auntie’ to approximately 150 children! But, whilst at work, she is also an extremely dedicated and experienced Client Manager. Having worked as an accountant for many years, Nancy’s brain is jam packed with useful nuggets of information which she calls upon to help our clients.

Why Nancy chose accounting:

"I’m a self-proclaimed and proud numbers geek. I’ve always loved maths, so accounting seemed like a logical career choice."

Sarah Hawkins

Marketing Manager

Sarah looks after digital marketing activities and content production ensuring its aligned with the company’s mission and vision. Blue Rocket campaigns centre around the needs of individuals and businesses, ensuring a seamless customer journey. 

A genuine interest of Sarah's is Marketing, "there’s such a variety of elements to the subject, it never stays the same and there’s always something new to learn".

Sarah's top tip:

Always check facts with your accountant, you’d be surprised with how many VAT or tax myths exist.

Tony Kensington

Client Manager

Tony has a passion for helping business owners improve their business performance and all clients to keep more of their hard earned money by paying only the legal minimum in tax. Outside of work he enjoys playing golf and travelling near and far. He has a home in Spain as well so loves getting out into the sun there!

Dan develops relationships with potential new clients and prospects. He works with our clients to understand their business structure, ethic, future goals, financial position and ultimately show them how Blue Rocket can help and support them. When Dan isn't liaising with clients you can hear him singing (badly!) along to the radio in the office.

Li's take on a common mistake made by business owners:

“Using software that they don’t ‘get’. If you can’t quickly get to grips with the software you’re using, it’s better and more time efficient to task someone else with your bookkeeping, or look for alternative software that you find easier to use.”

Her strategic approach and keen desire to face a challenge head on compliments the existing skill set of the team. Jen grew up in Zimbabwe and moved to the UK in 2010 and loves to travel.
