Who do the Thunderbirds call when they need an international e-commerce accountant?

Jamie Anderson and Thunderbird 2

That’s the million pound question. At least it was for Jamie Anderson, TV producer and son of Gerry Anderson - the creator of classic, and legendary, British science fiction series Thunderbirds. 

And the answer? Crunch of course! With our CEO and founder Darren Fell being an avid fan, it was a no Brain(s)er

Thunderbird saying "use Crunch"

That’s right, Crunch is now helping the Thunderbirds in their ongoing mission to save the world, from whatever perils may appear in each weekly episode. 

We’re supporting Brains at Thunderbirds HQ by bringing their financial administration into the 21st century. With bespoke cloud-based software and expert advice from Chartered accountants.

Jamie was seeking a capable e-commerce accountant for the official £1m+ e-commerce website, www.gerryanderson.com, that he manages in celebration of the work and legacy of his father’s work. 

Where they stock and sell all of the products and collectibles derived from the television productions Gerry Andrson created such as Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Joe90, Thunderbirds and others.

After spotting this intriguing lead coming in, Darren, slightly star-struck, asked the sales team if he could speak to Jamie himself. They had a long chat about all things science-fiction puppetry related, and even spoke a bit about accounting too : )

At the end of which, Jamie was persuaded that Crunch was the right company to handle all of his accounting. And decided to sign up to our Scale e-commerce package that offers all of the technology to handle the live feeds from their e-commerce system, all the other related software, and the specialist e-commerce team with a dedicated Senior Specialist Chartered Accountant running all of their accounting needs with expert advice, plus year end accounts and all UK tax requirements. 

So far Jamie is highly impressed with the technology that Crunch has provided and what it can do for his business. Dillis Qin, our Head of our Small and Growing Business section, is currently building the accounts for gerryanderson.com and then looking to add further services later.
