Graham Kirk – Managing Director
Key role at Kirk Newsholme:
Graham is the founding partner of Kirk Newsholme and is a straight talking Yorkshire man in his approach. In establishing the business in 1992 it was his aim to take the knowledge and expertise he had gained at a ‘Big Four’ international accountancy firm and deliver it to businesses in a highly personal and practical way that added real value. Above all else Graham believes in really looking after the firm’s clients and putting their best interests first by taking the time to understand all the issues before offering practical and effective solutions.
“From the very start we called ourselves ‘Business Advisors’ because that’s how I want our clients to see us. Put simply we just enjoy helping clients and every client has different problems and opportunities so our service is bespoke to each and every one.
I am immensely proud of the team and the culture here at KN and of the fantastic clients we have the privilege of working with.”
I am very much a family man and enjoy spending time with them. I also enjoy running and watching most sports. Being a keen Leeds United supporter I am forever optimistic that the good times will return!
There’s not a lot I don’t like. I enjoy going to concerts and have recently seen Ed Sheeran, Adele, Rod Stewart (twice) and more. My favourite live act is Bruce Springsteen.
I graduated in Civil Engineering but after mixing concrete for my late Dad’s greenhouse base we both decided I might be better suited to a career elsewhere!
