As a “lifer”, Maureen has seen the Moore Kingston Smith’s development over the years - from joining in 1982 to becoming Partner in 1990.

In her role as Managing Partner (since 2016) Maureen now concentrates helping clients and employees reach their potential; as well as leading the firm’s growth strategy. She believes that people are at the core of the business and whether it be clients, partners or employees, it is all about relationships and nurturing those to empower people.

Maureen values the firm’s composition – diversity and inclusion has developed organically over the years and it shows - the firm’s Gender Pay Gap Report which shows figures significantly lower than those of the UK economy as a whole.  The firm celebrates this diverse workforce which enables innovation and blue sky thinking to come to the fore – and aligns people’s aspirations to the success of the firm.

To her clients, Maureen is their business partner, advocate and adviser. As a Chartered Accountant, adviser and audit practitioner with more than 30 years’ experience advising entrepreneurial businesses, she has guided owner-managers through all stages of development, from start-up to growth, through crisis management and on to their ultimate sale, or passing down to the next generation. Her expertise in helping clients to implement growth strategies in the UK and internationally, with her hands-on style, is a tremendous asset.

In her spare time, Maureen is also a school governor and a director of West London Business.
