Meet the Crew

Darryl Keyte


Darryl understands freelance clients like you because he's a freelancer himself at heart. He got his start working at an accountancy practice in Johannesburg, South Africa. After qualifying as an accountant in 1999, he moved to the UK, where he's worked ever since.

While he's been with a top UK firm and set up two practices of a similar nature, his dream was always to "go it alone." The Accounting Crew is the culmination of three years of planning and a combined 26 years of experience between Darryl and Rowan.

Their aim? To do accounting differently, the way you wouldn't expect (and won't find anywhere else). Less of the stuffiness of traditional firms, more availability and approachability. Darryl's personal philosophy is to treat you like family, and to serve you as a trusted partner. He takes his work very seriously, but he also likes to have fun. It's about relationships, personal connections, and proactive advice to keep your business humming along smoothly and profitably.

When he's not taking care of clients, you'll most likely find Darryl spending time with his wife and two daughters. He's also a keen sports fan and an avid reader, especially of inspirational business books (which is probably how he got inspired to become "the Google of the accounting world").

Rowan Keyte


Rowan brings a wealth of experience in accounting and finance to The Accounting Crew, dating back to 2001. He's worked for two multinationals in the UK in the construction and travel industries, and for Ericsson AB in the telecommunications industry in South Africa.

For the past three years he headed up the business finance team for one of Ericsson's global customers, MTN, in Dubai. As a result, Rowan is known for his outside-the-box strategic thinking, and believes in going the extra mile for clients.

Outside of work, Rowan enjoys time with his wife, two daughters, and a son. He's also a passionate sports fan, and you might very well run into him at a football, cricket, or rugby match.

Chat directly to Rowan at 020 3755 5180, by email or Skype. He'd love to find out more about your business and let you know how The Accounting Crew can help.
