The Early Years

The principal partner gained his Honours degree in business and finance back in 1983 from Glasgow Caledonian University. Having then decided on accountancy he joined Coopers & Lybrand in 1984 to do his formal training.

While going through training, Derek managed to get his golf handicap down to a respectable number and picked up a few trophies along the way!

Derek still has a keen interest in golf although his handicap is creeping up, and also enjoys the occasional game of squash and badminton.

Insolvency Experience

At the time of qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1988 Derek was working in the insolvency department dealing with various types of businesses. These included retailers, hotels, restaurants and manufacturing companies and gave him a broad range of business skills and expertise.

A spell in industry followed after qualifying and experience was gained in manufacturing of plastics products and in the wholesaling of pharmaceuticals.

Fields & Co. CA is Born

The variety and excitement of businesses that Derek had been involved with was a key factor in his decision to start up his own accountancy practice and Fields & Co CA was born in 1992 and has gone from strength to strength.
