Andrew Matthews to lead MHA Moore and Smalley’s Liverpool office

MHA Moore and Smalley has appointed experienced management accountant Andrew Matthews to lead its Liverpool office.

Andrew joins us as a partner after three and half years as group finance director of fast-growing Merseyside-based manufacturer and exporter Inciner8 Ltd.

At Incincer8 he was part of the management team that oversaw significant growth and expansion of the incineration specialist.

Prior to this, Andrew spent over eight years at DSG Chartered Accountants in Liverpool as audit and corporate finance director.

Our firm has significantly expanded its presence in Merseyside since opening a permanent office at 20 Chapel Street in the city in 2018.

Andrew, who grew up in Liverpool and lives in Sefton, said:

“I’d already experienced life as a client of MHA Moore and Smalley during my last FD role in industry, and had been impressed with the wealth of knowledge in the firm and its commitment to helping clients plan for the future.

“It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to help the firm further grow its reach and client base across Merseyside, The Wirral, West Lancashire and North Wales. I’m particularly looking forward to renewing and developing relationships with the professional community and our clients.”

Danny Houghton, partner of MHA Moore and Smalley, said:

“Merseyside and its surrounding regions have been a key driver of growth for the firm and we’ve supported a wide range of owner-managed businesses, including manufacturers and exporters via our association with Baker Tilly International.

“Andrew’s time in both practice and industry have given him first-hand experience of advising a business and the challenges of growing one too. Coupled with his deep understanding and knowledge of the region, he was the perfect candidate to lead our Liverpool office.”

In addition to his management accounting, audit and corporate finance expertise, Andrew’s time as an FD has helped him develop specialisms in high-growth business planning and strategy, international trade, manufacturing operations, and shareholder tax planning.

Outside of work, Andrew is a trustee of Sefton Women and Children’s Aid a voluntary organisation providing frontline support to victims of domestic violence.

A trained classical violinist, Andrew also holds a motorcycle licence and a private pilot’s licence and has hundreds of hours of flying time under his belt.
