Taking Stock - Small Business Service - bringing people together.

Things are getting just a little bit too close for comfort at the Department of Trade’s Small Business Service. The body, which was launched in May and designed to ensure the interests of small businesses are catered for, is fast becoming a place for happy reunions. It began with the appointment of the SBS chairman David Irwin – the former project North East head – and continued with the promotion of Michael Snyder, senior partner at Kingston Smith, to the Council. The final addition is set to take place if and when Baker Tilly partner Theresa Graham is announced as a member of the SBS’s steering committee. For those who don’t know, the connection goes something like this: Irwin and Graham have known each other for 20 years, since they were in practice at PwC in Newcastle. Meanwhile, Graham and Synder have known each other since Graham was chairman of the London Society of Chartered Accountants and Snyder was chair of the London Practitioner’s Board at the beginning of the 90s. It’s amazing how people’s paths happen to cross in this way. Isn’t it?
