Meet the team:

Bambi Harrison

Managing Director

A logical thinker and creative problem solver with a knack for numbers.

Bambi built her career in accountancy through her own proactive curiosity, refusing to shy away from the important questions. This curiosity has never left. After nearly two decades in the industry, and establishing a successful practice, she still approaches every opportunity as one for new learning and growth.

Her career as an accountant has been varied and taken her in a number of directions. Yet wherever she has been, the narrative remains; companies consistently falling into the same traps. Stuck in a rut with processes that don’t work but that they don’t know how to change.

Hence the set-up of BB Harrison, to bring new life and a fresh perspective to accountancy and reporting. As a holistic accountancy practice, to go beyond the numbers to decipher the bigger picture. That means not just look at what your company is doing now, but focusing on getting you where you want to be.

Alice Cater

Accounts Assistant & Bookkeeper

Alice started working in the accounts field in 2015, working mainly as part of the sales ledger team but also within purchase ledger and credit control. She regularly reported to the managing directors, providing them with decision making information.

During this time, she worked hard and studied for her AAT, reaching level 3. And she hasn’t finished yet!

Deciding that she wanted to work in a more mainstream accountancy domain she joined the team in November 2021.

Since joining she has worked with a wide selection of clients in different industries and expanded her knowledge of different accounting systems.

She has a warm customer service approach that helps with onboarding new clients and training them in their use of our cloud-based accounting solutions.

With a positive attitude to work, a willingness to learn and attention to detail, Alice is a most welcome and integral member of our team.

Wendy Ogilvie

Wendy Ogilvie

Senior Bookkeeper

Wendy spent many years as manager of an Accounts Department, developing her knowledge and experience in bookkeeping and accounts management.

During this time, she studied hard and became a qualified AAT. After a number of years, she decided that it was time to break away and took on bookkeeping services for other business owners.

Her work created opportunities to speak to small business owners and sole traders, leading to the conclusion that they all had the same constraints – that they were keen to find reliable freelance bookkeeping services.

These owners were passionate about their own business but wanting to hand over the accounts aspect to someone reliable and with an attention to detail upon which they could rely, leaving them the space and time to grow their businesses further.

Working as part of the team at BB Harrison allows for the opportunity to provide that service to a wider breadth of our clients’ businesses, who still need that dedication to detail.

As always, our services are all designed with the client business needs in mind.

Our social values:

We support local charities by donating our time and expertise.

Where we work:

We provide accountancy and taxation services for the Maldon, Tiptree, Witham, and Dunmow areas, as well as remotely.
