A Word From Sue

Hello! My name is Sue and I am the founder of Suzanne Lock Business Services.


These are a few words about my story.

I started my career shortly after leaving school working with HSBC. Gaining initial exposure to an industry in which I would discover My passion for accounting and business.


Starting my own enterprise in the form of the first Surf Shop in Colchester town when the industry was just before its peak (how times have changed!).

This first-hand entrepreneurial experience would prove to be an invaluable learning experience for me as I surfed the high and lows of business ownership. Handling all the day to day finances for the company, profits surged, taxes were paid and books were kept.

However, markets change and the surf scene went out of vogue. It was time to find a new way of providing for my family so I joined a small advertising agency as a part-time bookkeeper.


After ten years of hard work and study, I later found myself as head finance director for the company, doing my AAT & CIMA qualifications in my spare time.

After building my experience throughout my career, I took the step to launch my own accounting and bookkeeping practice in 2010 which has been prosperous enough to grow into a small family office hiring both my daughter Emma and son James as full-time employees. 

I continue to work in the company as the head accountant and director. 
Leading the day to day happenings and providing for my family as always.
