Louis Whaley AFA – Financial Accountant
Louis is the newest member of our team and is an experienced accountant, following his move into the sector in 2011 after finishing University. His friendly and approachable nature have been warmly welcomed by our clients, and he has become a valuable member of the team. We would say ‘respected’ as well, but his admission at being a West Ham United fan scuppered that somewhat!
Here at Apex, Louis concentrates on business growth and development, personal and company tax.
Louis is also a keen footballer; playing for Biggin Hill and Five Oak Green at the weekend – and from what we have seen, would easily make it into the current Hammers side.
