Frank Godfrey BA, ACCA Director
After leaving university in 1977 Frank gained experience in both large and small accountancy firms, ultimately leaving a managerial role at BDO in Manchester to set up in practice in 1991 and has been advising clients on a range of issues ever since.
Away from work Frank enjoys most activities that have fresh air, hills or sea – including daily walking with the dog.
Andy Vause, BSc FCA Director
Yorkshireman, Andy, qualified with BDO in Manchester in 1983. Initially specialising in audit, over the years he has developed expertise in all areas of “general practice” work, including accounting, personal and corporate tax, VAT and all round business advice. Having established his own accountancy practice, he joined Godfrey Holland in 2005, seeing the opportunity to offer a wide variety of services to the smaller owner managed business.
Being a keen golfer and life long supporter of Rotherham United provide Andy with unpredictable interests away from the office!
Louise Raistrick BCom (Hons), FCA Director
Louise qualified as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse in London specialising in personal taxation and high net worth individuals. She moved to KPMG in the partnership sector and then re-located to Manchester. She joined Godfrey Holland in 2008; her role encompasses all aspects of accounting and tax, aiming to make the complex easy to navigate for all individuals and businesses.
She lives locally in Cheadle Hulme. Outside the office she enjoys all the good things in life including travel, food and books.
Linda Clark FMAAT, AATQB
With many years of accounting experience in various roles Linda is also a member of the AAT, qualifying over 25 years ago and later becoming a Fellow of the association. Working alongside Frank since he started working in the Northenden office in the early 1990’s she has seen many faces come and go over the years whether it being fellow colleagues or past and present clients.
She is proud of her son who has followed her into the accounting world; she loves to pass on her long and varied accounting experience on to him.
In her spare time she enjoys surfing the web for the next best holiday deal, to then organise the trip and everyone who joins her, which is just part of her organised nature!
Lorraine has over 40 years’ experience as a bookkeeper and payroll manager having worked in various industries and accounting practices. She joined Godfrey Holland in August 2015.
She spent her early years in Zimbabwe and consequently this has nurtured her interest in travelling as much as possible to different countries.
"I wanted the option of a female accountant, GH have surpassed my expectations; they listen to me and are very patient in taking the time to explain my accounts. Nothing is too much trouble. It's a great relief to just hand everything over to someone that I trust."
