“Why I became an accountant” - Michael C Hopper, FCA

Did I have a road to Damascus vision? Well actually no, much more mundane than that. Before leaving school, my parents gave me a choice, go into the bank or accountancy.

I chose accountancy and joined international firm Deloitte & Touche straight from school. Luckily, I enjoyed the work and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1973. I set up Hopper & Co in Ballyclare in 1984.
