Bee Motion’s Founder and Chief Brew Maker
*** Stefan Barrett ***
Stefan is an accomplished and passionate accountant and entrepreneur who founded
Bee Motion in April 2015. He brings inclusivity to the forefront of the company's values,
making sure that every client is catered to according to their unique needs. With his innate
ability to understand the commercial aspects of various trades and his drive for perfection,
he quickly established Bee Motion as a trusted partner for businesses seeking financial
guidance. Within six months, the company had grown significantly, prompting Stefan to
transition it into a Limited company, fuelling his excitement for further growth and expansion.
What sets Bee Motion apart from other accounting firms is Stefan's unique approach to
understanding the commercial aspects of all trades. This enables Bee Motion to offer
tailored services that are inclusive and specifically designed to meet the individual needs
of each client. The company's growing reputation for exceptional service and reliable
financial guidance has built a loyal client base that continues to trust Bee Motion to support
their financial endeavours. Stefan's commitment to perfection, attention to detail, and
passion for helping businesses succeed have helped Bee Motion become a highly respected
and sought-after accounting firm.
Stefan's experience with the Apprentice Academy has made him a strong advocate of their training regime. He actively recruits apprentices within Bee Motion with the goal of promoting growth and development for both the business and the apprentices. Stefan believes that as Bee Motion expands, apprentices should grow with the business and eventually fill senior positions. By nurturing and mentoring these apprentices, he also aims to ensure that the core culture and working ethos of the business are maintained and passed on to future leaders within Bee Motion.
This approach to talent development can help build a strong and sustainable talent pipeline for the firm, ensuring that it has the skills and expertise necessary to thrive in the long term.
Stefan likes to keep active and enjoys scuba diving, snowboarding and working towards his private pilots licence in his spare time.

Introducing the one and only BIG Ralph, Bee Motion's Head of Client Experiences. Ralph is the financial expert you never knew you needed! He's got a nose for sniffing out the best solutions and a bark that can scare away any taxman.

But don't worry, he's got it all under control. He's so transparent, you'll be able to see straight through him (not that you would want to).
When he's not busy helping clients, Ralph loves to run in circles chasing his tail. He's the master of the art of distraction, but he always gets the job done in the end. And if you're lucky, he might even let you give him a belly rub!
So if you want to work with the financial genius that is BIG Ralph, come to Bee Motion and ask for him by name. Just make sure you bring plenty of treats - he can be a bit of a diva!
