Welcome to our new secondee

Say hello to Hayden!

At the start of February, MHA Carpenter Box welcomed Hayden Winters to our Worthing office. He joins us on secondment from Smart Business Solutions based near Melbourne, Australia. He will be working with us for four months, and then plans on travelling around the UK and Europe for another two months during the summer.

Hayden graduated from RMIT University in 2016 with an Accounting degree. He worked at Smart Business Solutions for five years while studying, and started training as a Chartered Accountant with them last September as part of the CAANZ programme.

Following the success of our BITE events in 2015 and 2017, Smart Business Solutions got in touch with us. They decided to run their own innovative and exciting BITE conference last year, with another scheduled this May. As a cloud technology champion, Hayden brings with him a wealth of knowledge around cloud accounting and the add-on ecosystem, and has settled in nicely with our cloud team!

He’s looking forward to learning more about UK businesses and exploring the local Sussex area.

We also said goodbye (temporarily!) to David Taylor, an Accounts Senior in our Business Services Group, as he spends four months taking Hayden’s place at Smart Business Solutions.

David joined MHA Carpenter Box in early 2014 as a trainee Certified Chartered Accountant under our Platinum ACCA training programme.

Having worked extensively with Xero accounting software, he’s excited to see the latest technology available in Australia and New Zealand.

We look forward to hearing about his experience in sunny Melbourne!
