Alan Kirby

My background?

I founded abi in 2004, after many years in the corporate world. I love running abi, and our team are a great bunch.

What I love most about abi

I get a real kick out of helping our clients build their business and achieve things they didn’t think they could.

Outside of work?

I’ve been competing in triathlons for years now, so that takes up quite a bit of free time. I love Ceroc, too.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be…

A pilot!

Sean Bufton

My background?

I’m a bit of an all-rounder – I’ve provided accountancy support to businesses in most sectors.

Me at abi

I look after our property and construction clients, and our service industry clients. I’m a bit of an ‘accountancy agony aunt’ – I love giving good advice and solving problems!

Round balls or oval balls?

Round balls. I’m a mad Portsmouth fan. I do love a round of golf too.

Sue Kirby

My background?

I have worked in dentistry all of my working life which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have now retired. My role in Abi is marketing, admin and Company Secretary

What I like to do

Reading, walking, with or without the dog, craft work and listening to music.

My favourite place to be?

On a beach.

Beanie Tasker

My background?

From starting my career many decades ago in accountancy, and diversifying into director roles within other sectors, I now found myself having gone full circle and doing very much what I started out to do.

What I like to do

Spending time with friends and family. In my view time is the most valuable gift to share.

My main role at ABI

I look after the requirements of our ARTS clients. Many of those clients are considered “friends that I have yet to meet”.
