Meet the Team

Donovan Atyeo was established In April 1999 by Chris Donovan and David Atyeo. The business started with just the two partners and a little admin support in a small office in Beaminster. Today Donovan Atyeo employ seven staff and occupy a lovely purpose built unit in a quiet corner of the North Mills Trading Estate. The expanding client base is due almost entirely to our clients' recommendations and referrals, which we are particularly proud of.

Chris Donovan (FMAAT)

Chris has worked in accountancy for many years, qualifying as a Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians in 1983. He met David Atyeo in 1991 at a firm of accountants in Bridport, where they worked closely together for eight years before deciding that they could do it on their own. He and David set up Donovan Atyeo in 1999 and have never looked back. Any spare time that Chris has is taken up almost entirely by football, his four daughters and a combination of both as two of his daughters are keen footballers.

David Atyeo (FMAAT)

It was evident from a very early age that David was good with numbers and it was easy for him to take the step into accountancy, qualifying in January 1995. Like Chris, setting up the partnership from scratch has given him a broad understanding of various aspects of running a business, enabling him to relate well to the needs of their clients. When he's not working he likes going with his partner, Jane, to famous restaurants around the country, then walking it all off with his dog afterwards.

Matt Lathey (MAAT)

Matt originally came to Donovan Atyeo on work experience, and eventually was taken on full time in July 2002. Since then he has attained Modern Apprenticeship and National Vocational Qualifications in accounting, and in 2006 he became a full Member of the AAT. Matt is a keen music fan and regularly attends gigs. In the last couple of years Matt has discovered the joys of travelling and so far has been to Australia and the States.

Vikki Moss

Vikki worked with Chris and David previously and when an opportunity came along for her to be part of the team, it was just too good to miss. Vikki has a wicked sense of humour and keeps us constantly entertained, but at the same time she is a very efficient and hard working member of Donovan Atyeo. She is kept busy outside work with her two daughters who are very active and she also has a business with her husband, Tony. Vikki is a keen darts player and an occasional Zumbaist.
