Sufian

The word stalwart is often over used but it’s just right to describe Sufian Qazi who for more than ten years has been offering Centora clients sage and sound advice at the same time as helping to develop the team with a combination of tireless support and experience.

What is the best part of working at Centora? Working as part of a small but very efficient team, we share knowledge and have a common goal of helping clients. I also enjoy working with people from a diversity of industries and market sectors, every business has its own challenges and I love having an insight into different ways of working.

Who makes the best cup of tea in the office? A teabag (well, it made me laugh!)

What do you enjoy doing when you aren't working? Riding and competing in Dressage, I love horses and my answer to the favourite book/podcast/TV question would be anything to do with them.

What piece of advice would you give to a young person thinking about a career in finance? Finance drives everything, of course IT is an integral part of today’s modern and developing world but it is built on investment, without proper financial advice IT, like everything else, would struggle to progress. Personal or professional, finance really matters and it is a wonderful privilege to be at the heart of it.

Are there any sectors that you enjoy working in? I work mainly in retail and accountancy, my father worked for an international oil drilling company in Dubai for many years and I would love to work with an oil company…perhaps we should start drilling in the fields around the office! …and we will leave Sufian with the prize for the most unexpected answer of the day/

Do you have any pets? Not at the moment, but I did used to have a grouse that would accompany me on walks.
