We caught up with Tony Mowles, who joined Anglia Innovation Partnership as Management Accountant in November 2023, to tell us a bit more about his role.

  1. What does your role involve?

I prepare the monthly management accounts for AIP as well as the Innovation Centre and QIP.  I also have a big role supporting the annual audit of the accounts and service charge figures.

  1. What is your favourite thing about your role?

Can I pick two? I like the fact that we are a small team so everyone is very interconnected with what everyone else is doing to help make the park run smoothly. Equally I like the fact that we can see so many organisations at different stages in their journey as they grow and develop from spin outs through to fully fledged businesses.

  1. What is challenging about your role?

I still have lots to learn whilst also keeping up with deadlines to ensure the various stakeholders are kept informed of where we are financially on a timely basis.

  1. Where have you worked before?

I have worked in accounts in lots of different industries including manufacturing, farming, wholesale and web based sales businesses so a pretty broad range although not a multi site, multi occupancy science park before.

  1. An interesting fact about yourself?

My first words to my future wife were ‘what time do you call this?’ – we have just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary so I think she has forgiven me.

  1. What do you like to do outside of work?

I am a keen sports fan and have coached both cricket and rugby in the past and now umpire cricket during the summer, I am a season ticket holder at King’s Lynn Town FC and also a keen (but slow) runner, helping out most weeks at my local Parkrun.  I also enjoy 80s music and get to as many gigs as I can.
