Stuart Adam

Non-Executive Director

Having decided whilst doing his ‘A’ levels that he wanted to become a Chartered Accountant, Stuart joined one of the top ten accounting firms where he qualified in 1986.

In 1990 Stuart joined an independent practice in Leeds and was appointed a partner in 1994.

Stuart joined his current practice Thomas Coombs & Son in 1998 where he still remains as a partner.

Stuart spent much of his early career looking after multi-national organisations but felt his strengths were better placed dealing with owner managed, family run businesses in the SME sector.  With nearly 23 years experience Stuart now works closely with many of his clients providing business advice, treasury management, financial controls and tax planning.

Stuart is one of four partners with Thomas Coombs & Son operating from offices in Leeds where the firm employs 30 staff providing a full range of services to their clients.
