Meet The Team
Victoria Sharp – Managing Director
I started work at the tender age of 13 and when I left school at 16 I could type 70 words a minute.
At 21 I started my first business and my second business Kudos won East Anglian Daily Times – Start Up Business of the Year 2000. Whilst running this, I also built up a small Property Management Company – Belvedere Property Consultants Ltd (something I always swore I would return to!). I sold both businesses to partners that had joined me.
In October 2003 I joined the family Accountancy practice Avanti. I took my Association Of Accounting Technicians (AAT) accounts and tax qualification and we grew the company from 3 directors to 9 staff, franchised the business and merged in 2020 with another practice.
So now I am the MD of Whitley Morgan and doing what I said I would – coming back to the property industry. Taking that experience both in property and business and new skills learned to bring our clients a valuable service looking after their investment.
I am also an Army Cadet Instructor, Foster Mum and workaholic. I also enjoy keeping fit with activities such as boxing, cycling and mucky race running. I like to keep busy!
Jan Fenn – Director
After starting my career as a secretary in the City of London, I rose to become the PA to the Managing Partner of one of London’s largest accountancy firms. After marriage I realised one of my goals and became a housewife and mother.
Following my husband’s injury on duty and medical retirement from the police force, I put my skills to good use and worked with my husband as administrative director in our financial services company. Upon expanding into an accountancy and tax practice, together with our daughter Victoria, I continued to manage all administrative and secretarial tasks until the company grew sufficiently to employ 11 staff.
Upon the merger of our accountancy companies with a London based Chartered Accountants, and the sale of our interests, I semi-retired and now currently live sunny Suffolk, assisting my husband and daughter providing services to clients through Whitley Morgan.
Steve Fenn – Director
After starting my working life in Telecommunications, I realised my main ambition in life and became a Police Officer with the Suffolk Constabulary. This dream was cut short after a very successful 10 years as a result of an injury on duty, that resulted in mandatory medical retirement and a spell of paralysis.
After two years of recuperation I studied and qualified as an Independent Financial Adviser, and with my wife Jan, managed several companies in the field of financial services. During this time we realised the symbiotic relationship clients had with their accountant, so we started an accountancy firm to satisfy the growing needs for assistance and plain speaking advice in matters of tax and tax planning. Our daughter Victoria joined the company in 2003 and our companies grew from strength to strength, culminating with the eventual merger with a London based accountancy firm of Chartered Accountants.
I have always enjoyed challenges of the mind and as a consequence successfully designed and programmed the software used in our accountancy firm, as well as providing both standard design and bespoke software to clients.
On the merger of the accountancy firm and the sale of our interests, I have semi-retired and live in sunny Suffolk. With my wife and daughter Victoria, we are looking forward to the future, helping Victoria provide services to clients though Whitley Morgan and its associated companies.
