Andrew Sims-1

Andrew joined Dodds as an accounts junior in May 2006 and commenced his Chartered Accountancy training, qualifying in 2009. Andrew is Dodd & Co’s 4th specialist farming partner.

Andrew says, “My passion for farming started early as I helped out on local farms, milking, silaging, lambing – wherever I was needed. I really enjoyed working with the local farmers and learning about the industry from them. It was therefore quite natural for me to specialise in farming once I had decided on a career in accountancy. It’s such an interesting, ever changing industry with great people. Making a difference to my clients’ lives and businesses is a fantastic feeling and very satisfying.”

The farming team at Dodd & Co has grown significantly over the last few years as farmers’ businesses need the technical, knowledgeable advice the firm can offer. Ian Brown, senior partner, comments “It’s not enough to offer only accounts and tax advice to our farming clients. Farming has had a pretty tough time over the last few years and farmers want a first class service; they want to know that their adviser knows what their worries and concerns are and what is going on in the industry – and we do that at Dodds.”

“We are delighted to welcome Andrew on board and excited to see what the future will bring”, Ian says.

Growing up in a Cumbrian village, Torpenhow (Andrew’s father was the local vicar), he attended Keswick School and after successfully completing his A levels went to Newcastle University to study Agriculture and Farm Business Management.

Andrew lives on the outskirts of Carlisle with his wife Sarah and their two young children.
