Tom Elsbury

Tom’s another veteran of the OC squad, having joined back in September 2012 fresh out of sixth form.

Reluctant to attend university just for the sake of it, he instead decided to put his natural numerical skills to good use here at Optimal Compliance.

In 2016, Tom took a year out to surf the waves of central and south America but, in the end, just couldn’t keep away from the intense, almost meth-like high of solving accountancy puzzles.

Since his return, he’s become our go-to for all matters relating to R&D (Research & Development) and is excited about the scalability of utilising this government scheme.

When he’s not gyming, surfing, or number-crunching, Tom can be found rolling around in his dressing gown with other blokes (Brazilian jiu-jitsu, apparently).
