Ben Thorne joined Bishop Fleming after graduating from Plymouth University in 2007 and is an Audit and Assurance Manager.
He firmly believes in ongoing communication with clients to ensure a thorough understanding of their organisation in preparation of each audit. A major part of this communication is being able to deliver advice in a clear and understandable way, regardless of the client’s financial background. He acts for a large number of Academies, including undertaking the Academy Audits and other regulatory returns as required. He also assists his clients with their monthly reporting to ensure that they have accurate information throughout the year.
Outside of work Ben is married with two young children. He is a keen golfer, but doesn’t get to play as often as he would like with family commitments. He also enjoys cooking for friends and family, particularly barbeques in the summer when the Great British weather allows.
