Meet our team

Pat Lewis
Tax Department Manager

I have led the Intellect team for almost 10 years now, having come from a career of over 4 decades in the accountancy profession.

I firmly believe that great customer service is the key to our success – each and every client is treated as our most valuable client and provided with the best technical advice and service we can offer.

My alternative dream career would have been in Air Traffic Control (yes really)… every time I pop on my headset to answer a call it brings a smile to my face!!

Jane Barrett
Business Development Manager

I have many years of experience in sales, marketing and in the education sector and I’m new to the Intellect Team in Business Development.

I’ve always been passionate about the customer experience and so currently, one of my projects is in supporting the brilliant Intellect team to gain their Customer Service Excellence award. We won’t have any trouble!

I’m a semi-professional shoe shopper and I do 80s disco and stage musical dance classes…not wearing the shoes!

Rachel Hurlston
Tax Advisor

I have been a Tax Advisor at Intellect for 3 years now but I also have over 20 years of benefits knowledge to offer from my time at DWP.

What I like about working for Intellect is the friendly interaction we have with our clients, helping them to get the right information / advice and of course, being part of the dream team! Out of work, I enjoy walking, reading and watching sport, any sport!

Most of all, I love spending time with my family and friends.

Charlie Days
Assistant Manager

I’m Assistant Manager of the tax team and have been with Intellect for nearly 5 years.

I spent 25 years working for DWP, HMRC and Jobcentre Plus and so I can add my specialism in self-assessment, PAYE and benefits to the team. The Intellect team are amazing, we are like family. We regard our clients as such too.

I love gardening in my spare time and its’ become a bit of an obsession!

Chloe Birkett
Tax Advisor

I have worked with Intellect since 2013. I have grown and developed along with the company and have enjoyed being a key part of that growth.

The best thing about being a Tax Advisor for Intellect is being able to help our clients and working with such an amazing team. Our motto is “team work makes the dream work“ without the team there would be no Intellect.

I would say, in my spare time I LOVE a nice fruity gin!

Liam Baynham
Tax Advisor

I’ve been a Tax Advisor at Intellect for 2 and a half years. From 9-5 I’m dedicated to provide help and advice to our clients.

After 5 o’clock I enjoy socialising with friends and I have a bit of wanderlust.

Intellect have supported me in the past with my travels to the Far East, I love an adventure, but it was still good to return to the Intellect team home.

Tina Hopkins
Tax Administrator

I’m the tax administrator at Intellect and I’ve been part of the team for nearly 5 years.

I’m often the first person our clients talk to and I also pride myself on the efficient managing of our clients data.
I love the fact that it feels like I’m working with family, not work colleagues at the office!

I also bring to the team the personal experience of being in a foster family myself, having been fostered from the age of 13.

Mollie Andrews
Junior Tax Advisor

I have just completed a degree in Business Accountancy at Birmingham City University and am new to the Intellect Team.

I already feel so happy to be part of the team.

In my spare time I enjoy going out with friends and keeping up to date with the Touring Car Championship. I also love a bit of retail therapy and can never say no to a new pair of shoes or a handbag!

Sumaiyah Hussain
Junior Tax Advisor

I am an accounting and finance graduate from Birmingham City University. I have recently joined the Intellect Business Services, which I am happy to be a part of.

I am currently in training to become a Junior Tax Advisor.

In my spare time I enjoy shopping and spending time with my family and friends.

Donna Coley
Administrative Assistant

I’m a new addition to the Intellect family. I’ve just returned to work after taking an extended career break to raise my young family.

I’m looking forward to re-joining the working world and supporting the team and our clients.

I’m a Mum of three, a coffee drinker, bookworm, (Bad singing) karaoke lover and an amateur runner…. all in my spare time!
