The heart and soul of a business is its people and this has never been so true than with Charterhouse.
Since its foundation over 50 years ago, Micky Ackenson, the original founder was ever present. Loved by the staff, liked and respected by clients, Micky was the driving force behind the firm.
The way he dealt with personal challenges typified his approach to life and work and all those who knew him knew that he would not give up on a challenge, often to his client’s benefit. This was highlighted when, undergoing treatment at a London hospital, Micky advised some of the medical staff who had been treating him, helping them recover money from HMRC where they had expected to have to make payments instead.
Micky was ever present in the Charterhouse offices, never a closed door in sight and often wandering the floors of the office chatting and laughing with all the team. He always put people first, his family, friends, staff and clients and nothing was ever too much effort if someone needed help. This approach is one that has filtered down through the business and its staff.
