Business Talk: Andrew Price, Chartered Accountants in Torquay
Andrew Price, owner of Andrew Price Chartered Accountants in Torquay has taken the time to talk to us at Frankman Design about some of the key points that has enabled him to grow his business, the importance of understanding your customer needs, and the importance of brand image.
Whilst we could talk to professional business owners all day, we chose 5 key questions to give an insight into the world of a local entrepreneur accountant.
- How long have you been established?
I started the business in January 1995, quite along time ago, since then the business has come a long way and is very different to now to what it was then.
- How would you describe your business personality?
Supportive – We value relationships with our clients, colleagues and partners. We understand clients, guiding them on their journey to business success. We help them navigate the minefield of business, tax and accountancy. We support each other, sharing skills, knowledge, experience and success to achieve more as a team.
Innovative – We are creative and entrepreneurial, constantly proposing new or innovative ideas to solve clients problems and to help them grow.
Thorough – We strive for excellence in our professionalism and care for accuracy. Our attentive curiosity and diligence drives us to discover the inner workings of our clients businesses down to the finest detail, so we can offer unrivalled comprehensive advice.
- Who are you trying to appeal too i.e. what does your target customer look like?
Business owners who want a better business and who want more from their accountant than just accounts and tax (these are important). We work with business owners who want to, build better businesses, improve profitability, improve cash flow, do things like get their own premises, safeguard what they’ve built and have more time to do what they want to do.
- How important is image to you i.e. how you come across to your clients?
Image and how you present yourself is important, through your website, stationery, appearance and how you deliver services to clients, but so is being able to back it up by walking the talk.
- Would you see yourself as an innovator/trailblazer?
We have a contemporary approach to accountancy, using the latest technology for the highest standardsand efficiency. We pride ourselves on being up to speed with the latest industry changes, seeking new avenues to grow a client’s business and develop new services.
“I’m very fussy when it comes to design and Frankman Design were very patient when designing our logo. When they showed me their ideas I instantly fell in love with it and it’s stood the test of time, going through three websites.
Frankman Design also designed our office signage and stationery, which still remains as fresh today as when they were first created. I’d recommend Frankman Design for Logo Design, Branding, Stationery Design and Signage.
I’ve also recommended Frankman Design to clients who have been really pleased with the work they have done.”
