Business Representative

Carole Jordan

Managing Director

Before setting up Businessheads Carole had experience in the tax office, in management with M&S and working in small business accounting before moving into banking. Working with business owners became her passion and she saw how independent businesses needed more proactive accounting support and practical consultancy rather than the over engineered ideas from big business.
She's built a team dedicated to a personal and proactive service.
Carole's varied background allows her to support clients in a wide range of ways including facilitating business decisions, developing strategy and tactics, and providing technical expertise on taxation, organisational improvement and raising finance.

When Carole isn't working she's listening to music, her favourite genres are jazz, classical, soul, funk and reggae. She's always the first to get up and dance! She's a loyal supporter of the arts in Brighton, being a founder at The Dome and on every friends list across the city.!
