Steve Hunt is a qualified Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience in practice and industry whose decision to change career direction was for the simple fact that he wanted to work with a portfolio of small businesses within his local area.
AIMS appealed to Steve due to the support he would receive from the central office and its resources and he opened his AIMS Accountants office in Darton in June 2014 with no clients and no previous sales and marketing experience and since then has grown from zero clients to 71 clients.
Putting his success down to some good web marketing, telesales and a lot of networking, Steve recently won an award at the AIMS Annual Conference and already has the next 12 months planned out.
On receiving his award Steve said:
"I’m delighted to win this award - my biggest challenge when I started was winning new business so this award is important to me as it is recognition of a very successful first year".
Steve also commented on the fact that he is:
"Thoroughly enjoys working with local small businesses and I’m looking forward to continued growth but the focus will shift to delivering excellent customer service in line with the AIMS philosophy to all my new clients".

So many thanks to you all for providing me with the opportunity to have a good life and may it continue for many years to come.
The support of being in AIMS has given me the confidence to be independent.
My clients come first and with the backup I can call on, I am confident that the relationship I have with them, and the work they receive is first class.
