Sue Penney - Managing Director + Founder of Penney's Accountancy Ltd
Sue started the business back in 1996 working from her kitchen table. She has seen the business grow from humble beginnings to a team of three bookkeepers, two accountants and an office administrator.
Although Sue’s main role now is building customer relationships and sales, she is honed as the ‘Business Witch.’ She gives countless clients peace of mind and a magic wand to wave all of their financial stresses away - of which, luckily, she has several - but don’t think she won’t cast a spell on you if you don’t get your paperwork to her on time!
Outside of work, Sue has 5 children and a passionate interest in Celtic history and spiritual development.
