Rosemary Bookkeeping welcomes the latest talented addition to its franchise network; Richard Swansea. While Richard has worked as a financial journalist in Hong Kong and London, as an editor and supervisor of research reports at leading investment banks and speaks French and Chinese, it was Rosemary’s strong management team that gave him the confidence to invest in this franchise.
He read Chinese studies for his first degree at Durham University, and studied for an MBA degree at London’s City University Business School.
Richard is excited about this next chapter in his career and is looking forward to working with local businesses and drawing on the vast business experience he already has.
“I came across Rosemary at the British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester, in June 2013. I chose Rosemary in preference to other bookkeeping franchises because of the breadth of its management team; this gave me confidence that my relationship with the team would not be influenced by issues of personality.”
The Rosemary Bookkeeping™ franchise responds to the increasing need in the UK for an affordable, professional bookkeeping service that supports both the client and the accountant. Richard will be working in harmony with his clients’ accountants, providing them with exactly what they need in the format they want saving his clients’ time and money.
The franchise is based on a business concept that has been established and refined since 2002, providing a unique bookkeeping system within a fully supported franchise package. Richard will be able to obtain great flexibility and the potential for a superb work-life balance, that will allow him to juggle his new business whilst looking after the family home with his wife and children.
The franchise is backed by four successful entrepreneur business women, Claire Watson-Bardot, Joanna Dennis, Sarah Cook and Lisa Curteis who have over 60 years of business and bookkeeping experience between them. As an Associate Member of the bfa, Rosemary Bookkeeping has a proven ability to sustain a franchise network successfully.
