Our Team

Victoria Cooper

Victoria has enjoyed over twenty five years working in tax, accountancy and audit. She started as an apprentice in Liverpool in 1989 with a small firm In Liverpool and since then has enjoyed senior roles both within industry and practice, successfully continuing her professional studies from AAT through to ACCA. Victoria has a full practising license with the AAT which enables her to provide full professional technical services to the business community; assisting enterprises with their compliance obligations.

Victoria very much enjoys supporting time pressured business people; taking away the strain that HMRC compliance often brings and bringing clarity and transparency to the financials of everyday business transactions. She provides insight and advice when needed to give business owners and managers the information and tools they need to move their business forward.

In her spare time Victoria enjoys spending time with her teenage children and her RAF husband. The active Cooper family enjoy travelling, camping and adventurous sports. Victoria is a member of the Ely City Hockey Club and often has the bruises to prove it during match season. Victoria also helps out with local Scouting events which her family also support on a regular basis. Her big passion is reading – anything from Jane Austen to Jeffery Deaver especially with a glass of prosecco in hand.

Ryan Lane

Ryan studied Accounting and Finance at Nottingham Trent University. He has been working for Red Shoes for a few years now and is about to undertake a further qualification with the ATT. He is highly organised and very thorough which are good attributes for his tax and accountancy work.

Outside of work, Ryan plays football and is a bit health and fitness obsessed as you will find him in the gym every evening pumping iron. He also spends a lot of time improving his knowledge on training and nutrition and claims his body is a ‘temple’. If he’s not playing football or in the gym he likes to team up with his friends and challenge himself to a long muddy punishing obstacle course called Tough Mudder. When he’s not lecturing the rest of the team on their bad nutritional habits he enjoys a sneaky low-calorie vodka at the weekend with the ladzzz.

Lorraine Partridge

Lorraine has worked in practice since leaving school, qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1997 and has 25 years of experience within small accountancy firms. She enjoys interacting with clients and prefers a personable approach to her work.

In her own time she enjoys cooking and keeping fit and has taken up running and cycling again, but the majority of her time is taken up spending quality time with her young son and husband.

James Hayden

James attended Ely Sixth Form and completed a Business and Administration Diploma which has improved his organisation skills. He is currently on an AAT Accounting Apprenticeship at Red Shoes and is enjoying being part of a small supportive team.

James enjoys spending time with his friends, although this mainly ends up in them sitting around loudly enjoying shenanigans within the virtual world. James also has an interest in writing and often creates collaborative stories with his friends.

Brian Partridge

Brian works part-time as Business Manager, 2 days per week. He originally qualified as a Solicitor and has worked as a Director of 2 local authorities and subsequently ran his own consultancy business for 13 years. His qualifications include a Bachelor of Laws (LLB), a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and a Diploma in Management Consultancy.

Brian plays piano and tuba, enjoys running, cycling and kayaking as well as listening to music, reading and most racket sports. Brian is happily married to Lorraine and is a proud father of their young son.
