A bit about me

Hello, I’m Morgan. I joined the Ecovis Business Advisory team as a graduate in 2017. Now, as a fully qualified Chartered Accountant, I have progressed within our firm and enjoy the role as a Supervisor, managing my own team of new graduates.

One of the main benefits of working at Ecovis is the opportunity to work with a wide variety of business types and sizes from an early stage. Gaining valuable exposure to a huge array of client senior management teams, I continue to be both challenged and rewarded by the steep learning curve.

The COVID pandemic has posed a few challenges for our clients, not least, the necessity to overcome remote working. It was important that we came up with new ways to audit off-site and nurture our relationships virtually. By striving to be flexible, agile and maintain robust processes, our clients could be confident their business audits were safe in our hands.

Personally speaking

My favourite hobbies?

I love being active – from running and working out at the gym, you could say that I’m an endorphin junky! As much of my working life requires sitting at a desk, physical exercise definitely helps balance my lifestyle.

Alternative career choice?

Professional rugby player. It’s such a fantastic team sport. Having played at university and made some good friends, it would be great to get paid to do a hobby!

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

Skydiving. Falling out a plane with just a piece of cloth to stop me crashing down to earth – it has to be a skydive a did in New Zealand when I was 18. What a ride!

What’s the most exciting thing on your bucket list?

Cage diving with sharks in South Africa. Being up close and personal to one of the worlds’ top apex, but severely threatened, predators, would be both thrilling and humbling at the same time.

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Definitely dogs – They love you unconditionally, whereas cats don’t seem too bothered either way.
