I am the lead partner for advisory services in the London office where I help clients to increase profits, reduce risk, drive business value and achieve aspirations, both personal & corporate. I advise businesses and their owners on their strategic planning, profit improvement, success and exit planning, outsourced accounting, taxation, HR and accounting system reviews.
I also head up the firm’s Business Services sector focusing on advertising & media, recruitment, legal and financial services clients. I engender long term thinking whilst building in shorter term goals to ensure progress is monitored against key milestones, and kept on target.
Prior to Menzies, I was the managing partner of an independent accounting practice which gave me direct experience of the unparalleled dynamics and challenges involved in running your own business. As well as being a Chartered Accountant, I am also a Chartered Tax Adviser, which gives me a unique breadth of knowledge as an adviser to SME’s.
Martin recently took up the ICAEW designation as a Business and Finance Professional in recognition of his work across the breadth of advisory, accounting and taxation services.
I have also been a judge of the British Accountancy Awards since 2014.
