Rob Thomas

Senior Management Team Adviser

Rob is currently undertaking an advisory role to the Senior Management team.  During his many years with the firm he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in all administrative and operational matters.  He joined Wilsons in 1973 following a brief period working for the Midland Bank. He joined the Accounts department with the specific aim of taking over as head cashier on the retirement of the then current incumbent. As the firm developed through the 1980s and 1990s, Rob became responsible for a growing Accounts team necessary to support the business. In 1982 he also assumed the role of Practice Manager, responsible for all aspects of administration within the firm.  In 1990 Rob became Director of Finance, and after a brief turn in the London accountancy world in 2000,  he was appointed Wilsons' Director of Operations in 2006. 

In 2021 Rob stepped down from his role as Director of Operations as part of a planned wind down towards retirement.  He now works part-time which has provided him with the additional time to enjoy many more visits to the theatre, travel abroad, and devoting more time to his family.
