Ian is a co-founder of Kings, always had a natural grasp of numbers so accountancy was an easy profession to enter and after qualifying in 1993 has loved helping business owners better understand their business, understand the numbers, help them look forward to the future and set their dreams and targets, helping to make them more profitable, advising on how they can keep the biggest share of those profits and ultimately how to maximise their return on exit. Ian is working towards advising clients on protecting their estates and passing down their greatest values, if that is what the client wishes to do. Not all do and why not enjoy the hard-earned spoils. Every day offers a different challenge, and Ian is always up with a spring in his step relishing the variety of both the tasks and the clients. Ian is very fortunate to be passionate about his profession and he gets great enjoyment working as an accountant. Best of all he has made many long terms friends throughout his career.
Away from the desk Ian is passionate about sport but watching at all levels rather than actively taking part nowadays and gets a lot of pleasure from his involvement in a Sunday football team. Ian also enjoys a good day at the races, horses or greyhounds, and to keep the numbers’ theme going he enjoys following the stock markets and dabble in forex trading. All wrapped with the odd drink or two and a film to wind up a busy day, or a theatre trip or music venue at the weekend to unwind along with spending time with his step-family and wonderful 1yr old twin grandchildren that keep him youthful.
