Mint Profile: Derek Souter

Firstly, huge congratulations to Derek for officially becoming a qualified accountant this week! Derek has now served the time he needs to, as well as having passed all the exams required, to be registered as a fully qualified accountant. We are delighted for him.

Derek is the first team member to complete our Graduate Trainee programme making this big news for us. He is also one of our longest serving team members so we thought it would be a good idea to tell everyone a little bit more about him...

What we would tell you about Derek...

Derek HATES having his photo taken so working in an office with Charlotte is not ideal. It takes about an hour to convince him to have it done then about 1000 takes before we can actually get him to break a smile. That's the reason this article isn't accompanied by a real photo of Derek. Unfortunately for him we do catch him off guard sometimes...Derek not only appears on our social media feed from time to time but it was Derek's image that was recently used in an article by Danny Buck ( @DClutt on twitter) for #smlondon ( @SocialMediaLon ). Poor Derek this is his worst nightmare. We, however, loved the article and you can check it out for yourself here .
