John joined William Duncan + Co straight from school and over the past 40 years he has worked his way through the business to become a qualified Chartered Accountant with ICAS, qualifying in 1987 and then becoming a partner in the practice in January 1990. He has a vast range of knowledge across a wide range of industries, ranging from retail, leisure and tourism, to manufacturing, construction and also within the professional sector. With a varied and extensive client portfolio under his management, John excels in providing a wide spectrum of advice regarding accountancy matters, tax compliance, and family tax planning advice, as well as providing corporate advisory advice as well as dealing with client’s audit assurance compliance matters.
A past chairman of Ayr & District Round Table, and also currently an active member of a local business club John also likes to spend quality time with his wife, Christine and his family. Although his three children have now ‘all flown the nest’, John and Christine like to keep very close contact with them all, and ‘occasionally’ you’ll catch John cooking the family Sunday dinners!
Sport has always played a big part in John’s life, though now you’ll find him on his i-pad watching his favourite football team these days rather than playing! The other place you might find him is in his garage looking after his old classic cars.
