Ali Habib
I began working for GSW in the December of 2021 after completing my degree at City, University of London. I’m currently studying for my ACCA chartered qualification. I prepare accounts, VAT returns, sole trader returns and take part in Audits. I have a massive sweet tooth and love going out for desserts!

Anthony Turner
I joined GSW in 1998 on a one year placement for my degree course at Aston University. After graduating I returned to GSW and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2003, winning the Christopher Wray Award in the process (for top grades in a small company based in the South East). I became a partner in 2008. 

David Mead
I joined GSW in 1984 after completing a foundation course in accountancy at Coventry University, following on from ‘A’ levels in Maths, Physics and Chemistry (what a choice!!) and bumming around Australia for a year. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1990, and became a partner in 1996. You will often find me at a festival or concert, either trying to relive my youth, or pretending I’m still hip and getting down with the kids! Alternatively, I could be in Thailand trying to set up the GSW Bangkok Office. At work I have currently progressed to sitting on a broken chair, love a spreadsheet, subject the rest of the team to my favourite music, and am an expert in ignoring everybody nagging me to tidy my desk!! 

James Cattlin
I started working at GSW in 2019 whilst studying for my AAT qualification. Preparing Payroll, VAT Returns, Tax Returns and assisting with the preparation of Accounts are the exciting areas I get involved in! My spare time is mostly taken up by football, supporting and generally being disappointed by the mighty Spurs!

Katie Blazeby
I joined GSW in late 2021, and am currently working towards my AAT qualification, with the aim of achieving Chartered Accountant status in the (hopefully) not too distant future. 
Prior to this, I ran my own small business for 8 years which I enjoyed, but ultimately, felt I needed something more challenging. I was thrown in the deep end when I first arrived at GSW, but have learnt so much already (even how to make tea to David’s very specific criteria!). 
My main duties include VAT Returns, Tax Returns, Accounts Preparation and Business Tax. 

Preeti Taneja
I have been working at GSW since 2008 and qualified as an Accountant in 2012. I specialise in Accounts production, Personal and Corporate Tax and am involved in Audit and Assurance matters. During my time here, I have gained considerable experience in all aspects of accountancy for small and medium size businesses, as well as being educated on David’s music from before I was born! I am back from maternity leave again, and am now a happy (but often tired) Mum of two.

Ria Jagani
I returned to GSW in September 2023, after completing my degree at Aston University, having previously working here during my placement year. I am currently studying for my ACA qualification. My main jobs include assisting in the preparation of accounts, VAT Returns and Tax Returns. In my spare time I love eating out and watching F1!
