Shotley Bridge Team

Pauline Henderson


Pauline is the Managing Director at Shotley Bridge and has been at its helm since we opened here back in 2007. Having previously built up her own business offering simple and straightforward accounting and business support services, Pauline then merged her practice with Butler & Gee's existing local clientel and the Shotley Bridge office opened its doors adopting the same core values and principles as Barnard Castle. From day one, Pauline's priority has been to offer a high standard of accountancy services while backing it up with a personal customer service that is second to none. Pauline has lived in the area all her life, knows the people and appreciates the hard working values that underpin the community.

Kate Stillwell

Kate joined the Shotley Bridge team in Spring 2014 and is fully AAT qualified. Having previously worked in the accounts department of a regional Hotel group, Kate is now developing her accountancy skills further by specialising in Accounts preparation and taxation for all our clients. Kate lives with her family very close to the office which means she has no excuses for being late on a morning!

Samantha Malone

Sam is already AAT part qualified and since early 2014 has been working with us in an Accounts preparation role. She is planning to sit her final AAT exams in due course and in the meantime is increasing her practical accountancy knowledge and experience working through accounts alongside Kate and Ian. Away from the office Sam enjoys a night out on the tiles and plenty of holidays in the sunshine!

Ian Taylor

Ian has been with us since 2009 having joined as a Trainee Accountant after gaining a degree in Business and Music. Ian then successfully studied for and passed his AAT exams and now works with clients preparing accounts and tax returns. In recent months Ian has become a link between our two offices and is now a regular at Shotley Bridge. Girlfriend and baby daughter aside, music continues to be Ian’s first love and away from the office he operates his own small record label.
