Justin Smith – Managing Director


Key role at Kirk Newsholme:

Having previously worked for a Big 4 accountancy firm, Justin joined Kirk Newsholme in 2000 to lead the firm’s team of Tax Specialists, overseeing a wide range of tax affairs for his clients. These range from family businesses through to large organisations.

From 2023 Justin has taken over as Managing Director of the practice, leading a team of over 50 staff; all based at KN offices, Thorpe Park. Justin 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 we 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 used to be a chef (no jokes about cooking the books please!)

Also – my brother is married to my wife’s sister…well, I am from South Yorkshire!
