The journey began at Chester Business School where Rhys gained a Business Degree before embarking on his Chartered Certified Accountant qualification through ACCA. Working full time, studying and bringing up a young family have meant that Rhys thrives on time management and fully understands the day to day pressures of running a business and juggling life!
Rhys has been an accountant for 12 years and has thoroughly enjoyed helping all kinds of local businesses, both large and small, to remain successful, to grow and to diversify, and ultimately to enable his clients to continue living their dream.
In his down time Rhys is a keen runner - mountains, roads, beaches - he’ll run anywhere! His greatest achievement so far is completing the New York Marathon in 3hrs 26mins and in the process raising over 4K for charity. He is always looking for a new challenge! Watch this space...
Always answering your calls and emails with a smile and making the tea when you drop by the office.

Originally from Manchester, Pete moved to Bontddu in 2007 and never looked back. These days, apart from work, Pete spends the majority of his time with his adorable son and Wife Catherine, or strolling on the beach in a vain attempt to exhaust Joe, his dog.
Ever since graduating from University he's always worked in Financial Services. Since the 1990's he has been a Financial Adviser, firstly with Halfax Plc and then switching to HSBC Plc in the move to Wales. In 2012 he became and Independent Financial Adviser and joined J.S. Jones IFA Ltd, based in Dolgellau. However, with many of his old clients following him he travels regularly across North Wales and beyond, often with Joe in hand.
He provides Independent Advice to both personal and business clients. This includes pension planning, auto-enrolment guidance, investments, life and critical illness cover, income protection, private health insurance, mortgage protection and inheritance tax planning.
All initial appointments are free of charge and at this meeting he will get to fully understand your finances and wider circumstances in order to ensure he can make the appropriate recommendations. Many of the fees for Pete's work are paid by the product providers themselves and in other cases when Pete does require a fee all will be pre-agreed so there's no reason not to come and see him to see if he can help you in any way.
