Kingston Smith, the top 20 firm of chartered accountants and business advisers with an office in Redhill, is pleased to announce the promotions of Ian Matthews and Guy Richardson to partner. Ian and Guy both started at Kingston Smith as ACA trainees in September 2005.
Over the last decade, Redhill-based Ian has advised owner-managed businesses across a wide range of sectors, using his expertise to help clients achieve their personal and professional aspirations. He works with clients in the property, technology and entrepreneurial business sectors, advising on tax structures, profit extraction and long-term strategies.
Ian said: “I’m delighted to become a partner and am looking forward to helping entrepreneurial businesses in the community to achieve their ambitions.”
Guy works with a broad range of SMEs, with a particular focus on the property and healthcare sectors. He is also experienced in helping UK businesses set-up and manage overseas operations, working with service providers from Kingston Smith’s international network, Morison KSi.
Paul Samrah, partner at Kingston Smith’s Redhill office, said: “Ian and Guy’s promotions recognise the value of their expertise and experience to the firm. It’s very rewarding to see homegrown talent flourish.”
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
