Meet Jeri Williams

Director
I have been working as an accountant in practice since 2006, where I first began my training contract. I stayed with my previous employer for 9 years and became a director after 7 years. I decided to take the leap and set up my own Chartered Accountancy Practice in April 2016. I have a real passion for being proactive and looking after clients the way they should be looked after. I want to ensure we do things in a modern way and customer service is the most important thing to me. I have two sons, James and Teddy who take up most of my time. I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the gym and staying healthy.

Sam - Client Manager at Smooth Accounting

Samuel

Operations Manager

Having joined Smooth Accounting as a Client Manager in September 2020 I took a keen interest in understanding how the business operated, this resulted in my promotion to Operations Manager in May 2022. Having gained experience in both industry and practice I am keen to utilise my knowledge to continually improve the Smooth journey for both staff and clients alike. After becoming a certified chartered accountant with the ACCA, I developed a passion for tax which continues up to today – I enjoy discussing complex tax matters with clients to further expand my knowledge. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading and watching sport.

I absolutely love my job, I particularly enjoy watching a client’s bright idea evolve into a thriving and successful business. It’s always a pleasure to get to know clients, to provide help and support and to be an integral part of their journey. Having recently finished studying, I now have plenty of time to indulge in my hobbies which include reading, running, archaeology and spending time with my family.

Smooth Accounting is very proud to be supporting the amazing work of JUST ONE Tree, a non-profit reforestation initiative. For every tax return we file, we will be planting one tree.

Trees really are the superheroes of our planet, cleaning the air we breathe, filtering the water we drink, giving life to the world’s wildlife and providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people.

Yet deforestation is still a major threat to global warming. JUST ONE Tree plants a tree every 46 seconds in severely affected areas, with the aim to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and reverse biodiversity loss.

We have just one planet. Together let’s restore it.
