Scott
Pheby

Scott has over 30 years experience in finance and business. He started out in the dairy business before going on to qualify as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1992 whilst working at Anglian Water. Following various senior financial roles in the distribution and  IT industries, where he managed a £13m takeover of a rival company, he became Finance Director of a Granada subsidiary supplying goods and services to the hotel and leisure industry. In 1998, he purchased a practice providing accountant, taxation and professional services to small and medium sized businesses. Over the past 17 years, he has helped numerous clients grow their businesses and maximise their profit potential. In recent years, Scott has developed a strong relationship with a nationwide retail franchise business providing franchisees with a whole range of services and advice to help them plan successfully for the future by using the latest cloud-based technology solutions. He is passionate about helping his clients maximise their potential and achieve their business and personal goals.

Scott has just celebrated his Silver Wedding Anniversary and has two wonderful children, both at university. His daughter is currently in Germany studying German and Business at Mannheim where Scott is keen to develop business opportunities supporting German companies. “One of our most successful exports is accountancy and financial services”, says Scott, “ I believe we can share our success in this country by helping our German friends utilise the technology available”.

Scott is a huge music fan and enjoys seeing live music whenever possible. He also enjoys all sports and works for a number of local charities near his home in Cambridgeshire. “Whilst we all try to succeed in business”, says Scott, “it is important that we always think of others not as fortunate as ourselves and try to make a difference in the world for the little time we have”.

Our Extended Team

The principle benefit for Fabulous Group customers is that fact that we are able to manage all aspects of the support and advisory services we offer to you, from our central team. This makes it easy for you – there is just a very small number of people who you need to deal with directly, in order to help you achieve your aims and goals.

We ourselves are able to tap into a broad and carefully selected group of Partners for specialist advice and support on your behalf; some of whom you may have seen on our Cloud Partners Page. Sometimes, we’ll introduce you to them as the need arises, often, we will simply utilise their expertise and apply it - to the benefit of your business.
