Sandy Gillespie

From a small family business background and with over 25 years of experience in the profession, Sandy is well versed in the challenges that face those running their own business.

A career in business and taxation consultancy, dealing with a diverse client base, forms the foundation of the experience he can bring to bear in dealing with clients’ affairs.

Sandy believes the cornerstone of providing support and advice to business is to understand what drives those who run the enterprise, as well as the sector it is operating in. As he says, “Only by investing time and effort into knowing the client, their business and their objectives, can an efficient strategy be developed, monitored and updated.”
