Meet the Team

James Denton – James is FCCA Qualified, and originally gained his qualification with a firm in Oxford in 2002. James then moved to the Shropshire area in 2004, and went on to take over MGP Accountants in April 2008.

James has experience with a wide variety of clients from a range of backgrounds, and is therefore able to use his significant commercial awareness to offer practical help and advice on all key areas of Accountancy and Taxation.

James has four daughters and, when he can find spare time, he enjoys most sports. He particularly enjoys football and horse racing, especially when combined with a good drink and something to eat.

Outside of the office, Jo enjoys spending her spare time taking her dog for long walks and going on days out.


Sue O’Hanlon – Sue is another long-serving member of our team, having been here for almost twenty years. Sue takes care of PAYE and VAT Returns, making sure all clients are kept up to date with ever changing legislation.

In Sue’s spare time she enjoys going to the gym, going to nice restaurants and drinking the odd glass of wine.


Liz Lucas – Liz is our Trainee Accountant, and is currently finishing her final year of AAT before beginning the ACCA training course, which will enable her to become a fully qualified Accountant.

Away from work Liz is a keen runner having represented the Air Cadets in the past and winning a number of Competitions.
