The historic market town of Bishop’s Stortford is located on the River Stort in rural Hertfordshire. It is a place full of character, with architecture dating back to the 16th century. The town’s history goes back much further and is well documented from the Norman era onwards.

It also boasts cultural hotspots such as the Rhodes Arts Centre and access to plenty of green spaces, such as Southern Country Park.

Meet Adam Aziz - Chartered Accountant Bishop’s Stortford
I founded Ascott Blake in 2016 after working in the city as Group Finance Director of the Ngage Recruitment Group (formerly Human Capital Investment Group). I initially trained and qualified with a major accountancy firm in London and started my commercial career heading up the finance function at TMF Group who are global outsourcers. I am a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
I wanted to set up a practice which was commercial and innovative to bring something new to clients rather than just a compliance service. I have focused on creating a service which makes us approachable and speaks in layman’s terms. I want to ensure my team takes control of our clients to really understand what they want to achieve so we can help them to achieve their dreams.
We have a range of clients from trades to large recruitment companies. My specialism is the recruitment sector however the team have a depth of experience across all industries and have gained valuable knowledge which we can pass to clients.
