Paul Woodman is Finance Director and COO at the Jersey Pottery and JP Restaurants Group. He is a Chartered Accountant of nearly 20 years’ experience and has practiced in Jersey for the last 10 years. A well-known figure within the industry, having delivered many seminars and training events, prior to his current role Mr Woodman spent 5 years as Director and Head of Tax at Deloitte Jersey and has also served on the tax and finance committee of the Jersey branch of the Institute of Directors.
Wendy Martin is Head of Tax at EY Channel Islands and has over 20 years of experience advising clients on a wide range of tax matters including international tax structuring in the private equity sector. She was previously Head of Tax Policy within Jersey Government, where she negotiated several intergovernmental agreements on behalf of Jersey with the US and the UK.

Paul Woodman commented: “I am very much looking forward to the challenges that come with the position of President of the JSCCA and to working with my colleagues on the Executive Committee. The business and wider economic environment, continues to change apace, and we aim to ensure support offered to accountants in Jersey is relevant, timely and accessible. We also aim to reach deeper into the accounting community and grow our membership amongst practitioners in smaller businesses and charities who we believe could greatly benefit for instance from our training programme which is accessible to all JSCCA members.”
