Ian Brownjohn

Ian is affectionately known as Harry. It’s a tribute to his wizardry in financial accuracy and forecasting. With construction industry experience and as a fellow member of the Association of Chartered Certified accountants, he keeps our business financially stable and secure. He’s proactive, so not your traditional accountant. A family man with two children, two step children and three grandchildren, Ian now enjoys playing golf at the weekends (and as often as he can!) as his footballing days are sadly behind him, although we hear he now plays in goal at 5-a-side. He is a keen Spurs fan and still has high hopes that just one day they will lift a trophy!
