Meet the faces behind CHW

The team at CHW

The CHW team consists of over 35 highly-trained individuals who share a firm commitment to the success of our clients.

With the majority of the CHW personnel qualified accountants, the staff are well placed to assist the small and growing business market and we are well resourced to ensure that our clients are always provided with an unsurpassed level of guidance and advice.

Read below to discover what they can do for you and your business.

Ian Orgill

Ian has more than 20 years’ experience in accountancy, starting as an apprentice and building up a portfolio of SME clients. Ian is perfectly suited to helping small businesses – his mother owned a high street clothes shop and his father was a management accountant. One meeting with Ian and you’ll be glad he became an accountant as he doesn’t have an eye for fashion. He specialises in assisting start up and growing businesses.

In his spare time, when Ian isn’t enjoying young family life, he plays guitar for a local self styled band, supports his local football team and likes to read. Ian’s very well kept secret (until today), is that he and his wife learned to horse ride when they first met and still occasionally hack out when they can get a babysitter. Of course, Ian also enjoys “socialising with friends”.

Nicola Roby
Director

Nicola heads the provision of corporate services within our Business Solutions Department. Nicola joined Warings in 1995, soon taking on the role of audit manager and becoming a Partner of Warings, and a director of CHW when the business was formed.

Nicola has substantial experience in corporate services but also has responsibility for the implementation and management of computerised accounting systems for many of our clients.

In her spare time, she can often be seen taking her black Labrador (Max) for walks around Wigan. Very occasionally, Max can be found at the CHW offices as the office mascot.

Daniel Smith
Client Manager

Dan joined the firm as a trainee in 2009 working within outsourcing and went on to become ACCA qualified. He was quickly identified for his strengths and knowledge to work within the SME market, assisting with their accounting and back office functions, joining Ian’s team in 2012. Dan now assists Ian with running this area of the practice and is responsible for managing the team.

In Dan’s spare time he likes to follow any kind of sport, supporting Everton Football Club, and Wigan for the Rugby (“league of course”). He enjoys playing most sports, and attempts squash, plays golf (badly) and attends the occasional music gig (admittedly never one of Ian’s).
