Andrew Carless MAAT MNAEA 

Partner, Head of Accounts | Poundbury - Burraton House

After studying at Bristol University, Andrew worked as a wine merchant in London and, briefly, Paris before returning to Dorset and joining Symonds & Sampson in 1992, having trained in accountancy and worked for a local food business in the interim. He is a Partner and Head of Accounts at our Poundbury, Burraton House office.

Andrew joined the Accounts department shortly after the creation of the current partnership, when there were only 4 offices, 2 computers and about 40 members of staff. As the business grew and became more complicated, he took on a wider role in compliance and operational matters, becoming a Partner in 2007. Andrew was involved in our conversion to an LLP and in the firm's significant expansion over the years, engaging with nearly every department along the way.

When he's not at work, you'll find Andrew playing tennis, golf or kitchen bridge (and skiing or sailing if time allows), alongside family life, gardening and (weather permitting) a sea swim at Burton Bradstock.
