About Bowes Brooks

Bowes Brooks was started by Jessica Brooks after she relocated to the Axminster area.  Jess trained at a Chartered Accountancy Practice in Bath more years ago than she cares to remember!  She went on to run their small business section and was responsible for a team of 6 and over 1000 clients whose businesses ranged from start ups to several million pounds in turnover.

She has since been the Finance Director for several companies (including a blue chip one) and treasurer for many charities. She has worked for Administrators and Factoring companies as a turnaround specialist dealing with failing and struggling companies and has set up, run and sold businesses herself.

In all Jess brings over 20 years private practice and invaluable commercial experience to the team at Bowes Brooks.

Bowes Brooks are proud to be the first point of call when clients need help with any aspect of their business and have an extensive network of specialist professional advisors to call on when necessary.
