The Management Team

Meet the North Yorkshire Accountants team at Bushells.

Paul Bushell, ACA Managing Director

My working life is centred around tax and finance and my involvement in Bushells allows me to help effect positive change to the lives of people I enjoy working with. It’s great stuff.

When I’m not on business I like to spend time with close friends and my wife and two children, of whom I am extremely proud. When they’re home from Uni, we often go walking in the Dales or on the Moors.

I love to ski with my family and we usually manage to get to the French Alps once a year.

I play golf better than I ski (which is not too difficult) and holidays in sunny places are important to me.

Pat Brown, FCCA Client Manager

When I am not at work, I’m usually looking after my young grandsons.  I spend many happy hours at the National Railway Museum, Eureka, Eden Camp, Elvington Air Museum, Creepy Crawlies and also riding on steam trains (the boys biggest passion). I think the boys enjoy them almost as much as I do.  We have four types of toy railway tracks and associated trains and accessories to play with at home so there is never a dull moment.  Our “quiet time” is often spent playing Angry birds, Fireman Sam, Peppa Pig or Star Wars on their Nintendo DS’s or Tablets.

Any rare “spare time” I do get is generally spent checking and replying to emails or reading books – anything from romance to crime to historical novels.

Julie Sanderson, ACA Client Manager

With one son at university and one son in his GCSE year, the demands of family life are changing; I now spend alot of my free time with my mum in law and my mum, who has just moved back to Harrogate after 30 years in Devon. Coming from a male dominated household, my girlfriends are an important part of my life, whether it be catching up over coffee, dining out, shopping trips, away days to London or weekends away to celebrate special birthdays.

My annual trip to America to visit my sister and her family is one of the highlights of my year. I do a Zumba class once a week and I also enjoy walking, something my husband and I intend to do more of in the coming year.
