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.”
"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."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"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 an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
