Ian is our Head of Property and specialises in advising corporate clients, with a particular emphasis on owner managed and entrepreneurial businesses.
Ian joined haysmacintyre as a partner in 2011 and has a wide range of experience extending from the small to medium enterprise (SME) sector through to companies listed in the FTSE 250. After 24 years at a 'Group A' firm, twelve of which as a partner, Ian worked as an interim director of finance at a large family owned property group before joining us. His time away from the accounting profession gave invaluable exposure to being 'on the other side of the fence' which he brought back with him to the profession to assist clients.
He has particular experience in the property and retail sectors and in helping clients with their technical accounting issues, whether under UK GAAP or IFRS. Apart from being an FCA, Ian is also a Chartered Tax Adviser and combines advice on the commercial and accounting issues with their tax implications. He strongly believes in providing advice that is practical and pragmatic which complements the wider business drivers and in working in 'partnership' with clients.
Outside of work, Ian is a keen viewer of rugby union and supporter of Saracens. He also plays tennis and enjoys photography, walking, attending air shows and watching F1 racing.
