Mike Taylor FCCA - Small Business Partner

Mike Taylor

Mike's history with Derek Young & Co represents a good example of the practice's low staff turnover. Mike joined the firm directly from school over 30 years ago. He worked his way up from Office Junior all the way to Partner level, becoming a fully-qualified accountant along the way. Mike and his team look after the smaller businesses that form the back-bone of the firm's client base. Mike is also very actively involved in the running of the practice.
