Shane Mosley

Shane is married with two daughters. He joined the firm in 1994 as a junior accounts clerk and progressed to ‘manager’s assistant’ within a year, and soon began to forge relationships with clients that are present to this day.

When Malcolm sold a portion of the business in 1998, Shane, along with Simon Kent, remained at the practice and consequently began to take control of the firm’s diverse client portfolio. Shane became a qualified accountant in June 2000.

In June 2005, Shane’s natural progression within the practice became complete upon his appointment as a partner of Malcolm H Preece. He still loves his job to this day and now regards many of his clients as friends.

Outside of work, Shane enjoys football, golf and spending time with his family.

About Us

Malcolm Howard Preece started our practice back in 1989 when he broke away from another firm of chartered accountants, starting out with 10 members of staff. The practice quickly built up a strong reputation in Derby and the surrounding areas and grew over the next 7 years until there were 30 members of staff making it one of the largest sole practitioners in the UK at that time.

Due to ill health, Malcolm decided to reduce the size of the practice and in 1998 sold approximately two thirds of the business. However, Shane Mosley and Simon Kent then took a more hands on role by being placed in charge of their own portfolio of clients, with the intention of them becoming partners in the future.

In November 2005, Malcolm took retirement from the day-to-day running of the business and assumed the consultancy position that he still holds to this day. It was at this time that Shane and Simon became partners. At the age of 65 and having practiced in Derby as a qualified accountant since 1971 Malcolm has excellent knowledge of the construction industry and has many contacts in both commercial and residential property development and therefore he can offer expert advice in these areas.

Today, the practice makes it a priority to work with clients on a professional, yet personal basis throughout their business life.
