Robin is thrilled with his new appointment, commenting: “I’m delighted to have been appointed as a Partner at MHA Carpenter Box. It’s been a great place to work both in terms of the people within the firm and the wide variety of client issues and opportunities that we deal with on a daily basis. There are always new challenges to face and I relish the prospect of being part of the partnership team to give my input into the strategic direction of the firm.”
Robin lives in Littlehampton, and is married with three children. Besides watching his sons play football and his daughter ride horses, he is a card-carrying Welshman, a keen fan of Brighton & Hove Albion and season ticket holder at the AMEX Stadium in Brighton.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
