We have a strong sense of family

Established in 1994, Mensis’ owner handed over the reins to Keith Sheppard in 2017 to take on the position of Managing Director. Since then, Keith has held a vision to help as many people as possible to achieve their personal and business dreams.

That vision extends to the dreams of his team members too.

Mensis has a strong sense of family where its mission is to bring people into the business who want to be a part of something more intimate where they can develop and grow without sacrificing their home and family life.

That’s important to Keith and the team. So important in fact that Keith’s wife, Chris, who owns Colmers HR, has become a trusted partner working with Mensis.

Values matter in a people business

Our values guide our activities at Mensis.  They mean something and they positively and directly impact our behaviours and interactions with our clients.

It’s personal.

We think about the person behind the business and how our work will impact them personally and professionally.

We want to make our clients lives better and that means being acutely aware of all angles.

Details matter.

Every detail matters.  Every month.

We deliver up to date advice and data that can be relied on to grow your business.

We care hugely.

Our services go beyond the numbers.  Sometimes it’s the conversation behind the service that matters which makes our client relationships more meaningful.

Our door is open.

We are always ready with a friendly welcome. It’s the small things that count.

Experience counts.

We believe that having outside business experience is important.  We are accountants who have seen life on the other side which means we offer real-life and practical solutions that are based on years of experience and learning.

Hands on.

By working monthly, we grapple with an ever-changing business landscape by rolling up our sleeves and immersing ourselves in our clients’ business.

There’s no “I” in team.

Our team is close knit and local, but our experience is broad reaching across the UK.  So, whether you want to work face to face or virtually, we can offer a detailed and personal service to suit you.

“For almost twenty years Mensis have always been my financial rock and at the end of the phone (in those early days no internet!).

We have only lasted in F1 for so long because our company foundations are strong, one of those supporting structures is Mensis.

There are two things I trust in this world.  My mums cooking and Mensis accountants.”
