Meet the Team
We are a modern accountancy practise based in Fareham, Hampshire with a team that love working with a diverse range of clients.
Guy Robinson | BA FCA
Guy is the Founder/Managing Director of Xebra Accounting. He supports business owners achieve their personal and business objectives and specialises in strategic planning. Guy also has over 10 years experience with Xero Cloud Accounting - which also lead him to set up Xebra in the first place.
Guy is the owner of 2 St Bernard dogs, called Wilberforce & Barnaby (we call them the ponies). In his younger days, Guy would be found orienteering and even competed for England! Although he now opts for a more sedate walk with the dogs/ponies.
