Steve Furlong says he became an accountant because it was the only thing he could do well… besides drive an articulated truck. It’s a comment typical of his personable style and sense of humour, and if you listen to his clients, there’s some truth in it – he is a very good accountant.
During his 30 plus years as an accountant Steve has developed a keen interest in computing and has been involved in the development and implementation of systems in many different fields.
