Lee Crispin

Business Services Operations Manager

My role of Business Services & Operations Manager provides me with the opportunity of working closely with the partners and team in the practice, whilst also having a portfolio of owner managed businesses.The role provides me with the opportunity to work with sole traders, partnerships, and limited companies in assisting with their day-to-day operations, as well as delivering advice when required using the experience I have gained over the past 20 years.

If you’re interested...

I started in practice in 2001 with a small firm in Litherland before moving on in 2005 to a practice in Crosby. I gained valuable experience whilst working in both of these practices before moving to SB&P in 2013 as an Audit and Accounts Senior. Whilst in my first year at SB&P, I gained my ACCA qualification. During the next few years, the partners provided me with the opportunity to develop my skills and offered their own experiences and assistance to help my progression within the firm, resulting in my appointment as manager in 2017. During 2022 and 2023 I decided to take a break from practice and move to industry within the insurance sector. I gained welcome experience during that period, but I missed working in practice and dealing with the clients on a daily basis. The opportunity to come back to SB&P and work with the exceptional staff and clients proved too strong and I returned in July 2023. 

What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?  
Racing super cars on a test track. I wanted to experience the thrill of racing cars without restrictions.

What is the most exciting thing on your bucket list? 
Sky dive. I want to feel the sensation of jumping from a plane and flying through the sky.

What one piece of advice would you give your 10-year-old self?
Don’t rush through life. Cherish your teenage years and those that you love.

Who inspires you? 
My family. We do everything together and we are very close. They make me want to be a better person.
