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.”
"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."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"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. "
