A life long passion for science let me to graduate in Physics from Exeter University in 1992. Later completing a Masters degree in IT from the University of the West of England in 1995.  This is an OLD photo – I’m crustier than that now 🙂

As Company Director of Excel Frome, I hope to spread the benefits of my knowledge and experience.

James – Excel Developer & Guru.

Excel Developer - James


A hybrid of techy Excel geek and business-marketing strategist I started Tangerine in ’98 to focus on leveraging retailer loyalty data on behalf of consumer goods brands and delivering transactional data analysis and modelling solutions.

I asked Ben as a fellow Excel Developer to support me in 2007 to put some structure and automation around a series of integrated Excel, SPSS & MapInfo tools, collectively called the FMC-G-Model™, designed to forecast the store-level impact of FMCG marketing activity on the grocery trade and measure/maximise operational-effectiveness and ROI.

I am working with ExcelFrome to deliver Excel-centric applications for local businesses.


Keith – Accountant & Excel Developer

Excel Developer - Keith


I have been working with Excel since 1999 and have developed various Excel models and tools for the companies for which I have worked. These include annual trading budget templates for a well-known UK supermarket group, and creating a Fixed Asset reporting model for a large London-based housing association (gross assets of £1.5bn).

With one or two exceptions, I have worked in the Food Retail sector (best part of 20 years) and Social Housing sector (5 years) during my working life.

I am a qualified Chartered Management Accountant (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants – CIMA) and have worked within finance since 1999.

When creating solutions in Excel, I aim for user-friendliness and functionality.

I also speak and understand Brazilian Portuguese.


Rob – Excel Developer
For Ecommerce and Product based Business

My background is in managing my own and others small product based businesses in retail, wholesale and manufacture, in most cases employing less than 50 people. It was after discovering Excel and Office 95 that I switched to small business IT having first traded on-line in 1995.

The last 20 years has been an interesting journey always putting good business practice and profitability before the technical demands of an ever changing IT environment. While primarily working with VBA I’m also experienced in HTML, JavaScript, PHP & MYSQL. I have built a large library of work that I am constantly adding to and that can be adapted for use by other businesses.
