About Us

‘’Since we started work together in 2005 they continue to have a genuine interest in our business and people, and provide clear advice and a service which we are delighted to endorse and recommend.”

VM, Surrey

As you would expect of any first class practice, here at Centora our team is comprised of well qualified, dedicated and talented individuals each playing a part in a well-established team.

We do not really do wacky, what we do is solid, dependable, hard-working and diligent but that is not to say that we lack personality, we are friendly, approachable and often told that we are easy to work with. Ours is not a profession which lends itself to frivolity but we always try to maintain an easy disposition and a welcoming smile.

Typical of this approach is Managing Director, Arnaud Westphal. Arnaud leads by example, instilling confidence in clients and colleagues with his easy charm and vast experience.

Years spent with Ford Motor Company, Morgan Stanley and Oracle Corp. have of course left a solid understanding of corporate procedures and systems whilst time building Centora has allowed an insight into the challenges facing business owners.

This combination of corporate governance and practical, hands-on management experience gives Arnaud a unique perspective that clients truly appreciate, a blend of sound, well established theory and practical, level-headed know how.

I have always been passionate about how businesses work, what makes them tick, how it relates to accounting and the fundamentals behind building a good sustainable enterprise.”
