Dannielle Stapleton – Director of Accounting Services
I’ve worked at Orange Genie for 9 years, starting out as an Accountant, I now focus my time on continuous improvement in customer service, processes, and software that we use to drive the team forward.
Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and children, we like getting lost on adventurous walks together, getting out for picnics, travelling together, and snuggling up at the end of a busy day with a movie and popcorn.
When I’m not busy running around after my team inside and outside of work, I like to cook a recipe out of one of my hundreds of cookbooks or read a Tim Weaver novel with a coffee or wine, depending on the time of day.

Benjamin Coleman – Client Accountant
I live to travel, but whenever I am not trekking through the Amazon Rainforest or witnessing the Great Migration in the Serengeti you might find me enjoying a wine at the theatre or rocking at a heavy metal gig. As a lover of history there’s nothing better than getting stuck into a Bernard Cornwell book, wondering around a museum, or enjoying an Art Gallery (despite my colour blindness).
Grant Hamill – Client Accountant
I am one of the Client Accountants here at Orange Genie, primarily working within our Small & Medium-sized Enterprises team.
After having spent two years with Orange Genie back in 2013, I decided to broaden my knowledge and skills with another local practice. My time there helped provide me with significant experience in client management, Tax Return, VAT and Statutory Accounts work for several clients across multiple sectors. Like a boomerang, I was thrilled to be able to re-join the Orange Genie team back in 2022.
I strive to provide the best service for my clients and help nurture their flourishing businesses, no question is off limits to me!
Outside of work, I am an avid film and games buff and love to cook (and eat!) and spend time with my family and two dogs.

Ilona Bednarska – Assistant Client Accountant
I am Ilona and I have been part of Orange Genie’s team for the past 7 years. I originally come from Poland but decided to stay in England after one of my summer holidays in 2012 because I was in love with the British weather!
I would describe myself as hard working and driven person who is not afraid to face new challenges. I’m passionate about my work and I know how to get the job done efficiently. I would describe myself as open and honest person who tries to be fair in everything I do. I believe that it is never too late to be what you might have been so I’m always looking for the opportunity to do better and achieve greatness.
There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books and romantic movies and I love to laugh. Normally I would enjoy summer holidays with my family in Portugal, but I am now approaching the end of my pregnancy and our second bundle of joy is due to be born in few weeks. We are very excited for our new little adventure as I won’t have to set an alarm for work anymore. I plan to return to work in few months’ time as apparently babies are the most expensive part of living!
