Ben Almond

Real Estate Consultant

I am a real estate transformation consultant at DUA. I am also a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Surveyor. Finding solutions is what I love. All companies regularly face strategic, financial or operational business challenges but many companies do not realise that optimising their real estate can be one of the solutions to dealing with these challenges. My work helps companies identify, design and then implement operationally effective real estate solutions that make the financials work.

In my spare time, I am a 3rd Dan Black belt in Judo and a Judo coach. I have a keen interest in leadership strategy and mindset coaching. I love travelling, especially to Portugal.

Chris Armorgie

It is much more than just traditional tax and accountancy! This approach enables me to take a deep interest in my clients, and I am able to build lasting relationships that make a real difference to them and their business. I love working with my colleagues and help develop their skills, building on ten years man management skills, working and rising to senior management level overseeing teams for one of the fastest growing accounting firms in the UK.

I love golf and football, and I play whenever I have the opportunity!

Elvin Mootoosamy

AI & Technology Solutions Consultant

I had a career in the city, dealing with financial institutions and trading. My professional role and passion have centred around trading and tech. Moving from a corporate career to SME sector allows me to spend more time with people and creating solutions, with limited resources and/or timescales. The emerging world of AI fascinates me, and I am currently working to launch customised AI solutions tailored to client needs. In a post COVID world, I collaborate with clients to harness technology and drive business success through intelligent automation. By implementing solutions that increase efficiency, SMEs can optimise operations, reduce costs, and boost productivity and scalability. My passion is enabling organisations to thrive by making them lean, efficient, and positioned for growth.

I have a very young family (3 children) that occupies me most hours outside work, as well as supporting my wife by taking on physically challenging climbing trips up rather large mountains a long way from UK!
