Testimonial

Ian and I have worked together for more than 25 years in various businesses, including a top FTSE company and innovative start-up ventures. I’ve always valued his loyalty and the clarity of his advice, together with the discipline and strategic thinking that he brings to the business. He is a highly experienced, commercially astute, affordable and dependable finance director. He is equally adept at ensuring good accounting systems and practice, through to handling key transactions such as, securing funding or negotiating a business purchase/sale. Ian is a great asset to any company and I could not recommend him more highly.
