With 30 years’ specialist industry experience in the music and entertainment business plus expertise gained in retail and property, Graham’s broad spectrum of business knowledge and commercial awareness sets him apart from many of his counterparts. He’s lectured extensively to other Accountants across the UK demonstrating the respect he has within the industry. As a keen golfer and former professional musician Graham is particularly passionate about his involvement with clients in these fields.
Graham’s ‘motto’ is “people deal with people not the name above the door” and subsequently the culture at GM&Co is one full of personal and individual interaction with each and every client, unlike many accountancy firms who prefer the distant and infrequent contact approach. Graham’s personal approach means he is down to earth without all the jargon and can see things from his client’s point of view. Graham will always find time for a cuppa with clients… he’s a legend within GM&Co.
