Deborah Potts


Head of Marketing & Communications

(Also Director of Summit Advisory – Business Consultancy and M&A division)

"I’m not an Accountant, rather a ‘been there, done it entrepreneur’ with Travel Industry, Business Growth and Marketing expertise – very much here to represent how our clients think and feel - unusual in an Accountancy firm but then again, Elman Wall is no ordinary Accountancy firm."

Arriving at Elman Wall back in March 2009 was like a breath of fresh air. I discovered not just ‘accountants with personalities’ but a highly professional team committed to the success of its SME and private clients.

Going beyond the numbers is key to my role. Understanding your challenges, enhancing the support you require for your sustainable success and communication are very much my focus.

The 'innovative events and services' we have created which ‘goes above the provision of more routine accountancy services' together with our Travel Industry specialism have recently been recognised at the British Accountancy Awards 2011 (quotes from judges) But rest assured we will not rest on our laurels.

Summit Advisory - see above - is our latest service designed to help business owners build, buy or sell their businesses.

Out of work I am an 'empty nester' free from family responsibilities much to the envy of some of my colleagues, an avid skier, keen sailor and foreign film fanatic with a hankering to try my hand at politics one day to fight the cause of growing SMEs– though I remain as passionate about social justice as in my student politic days at Cambridge.
