Angela Hackett

I have worked in accounts for over 20 years.  Before starting Emerald with Donna, I began my career as an Accounts Assistant straight from university and progressed to become the Financial Director of a SME Manufacturing Company in the heart of the Black Country.

I have always had a strong desire to support Sole Traders and Small Companies in growing their business by enabling them to have a better understanding of their financial position at any time.

Away from work, my 2 children keep me and my husband busy as a taxi service, and I greatly enjoy cheering my children on during their competition swims and trampolining. I love nothing more than curling up on the settee after a long day reading a good detective novel with my dogs close by. In January 2023 I satisfied a long held ambition and began learning the piano!

Donna Cotterill

I have nearly 30 years’ experience in Accounts, Bookkeeping, Payroll and HR working for a variety of companies ranging from Accountants to Manufacturing, using various accounting systems such as Sage, Quickbooks, TAS, and IRIS.

Some years ago, whilst studying for my AAT, I was asked if I would like to become a lecturer at Stourbridge College, teaching Sage and later OCR manual and computerised bookkeeping, I felt so proud when all my class passed their exams!

As a family we love travelling and holidays and are always planning the next one! We love all things Disney and have been several times, but also love our holidays in the UK where our Cocker Spaniel Buddy can join us. I enjoy crafting especially cross stitch. I love making lists and organising things – tidy desk tidy mind!
