Jonathan began his career at a medium sized accountancy firm in West London which held a strong reputation as a practice for media and entertainment clients.  Here he trained as an ACA and gained a wealth of experience working with music, film, fashion and creative clients.

In 2010 Jonathan and Colin started Raedan.

Jonathan specialises in working along side Creative and Tech Companies and is often employed as a Virtual Finance Director, with a focus on using technology to improve accounting and general business understanding for the Directors.




Colin has over 35 years’ experience in general practice.  He trained with a large accountancy firm in the City of London and then, after qualifying, moved to a small firm of Chartered Accountants in London’s West End to become a partner. This firm acted for small/medium business and professional clients but had a particularly strong client base within the entertainment industry.  After some twelve years in partnership, Colin set up as a sole-practitioner in the West End and later moving to Docklands, building on his experience and contacts particularly within the entertainment and media sectors.

In 2010, Colin and Jonathan set up the new practice Raedan.
