Cowgill Holloway appoints new Financial Outsourcing Director, David Holland
Leading accountants and business advisers, Cowgill Holloway LLP, are adding to their outsourcing department with the appointment of David Holland.
David has over fifteen years experience as a Finance Director working with SMEs at all stages of the business cycle (start-up, high growth, turnaround and exit) with a particular emphasis in the technology and consumer sectors.
Most notably he led the successful financial and operational turnaround of world leading art pottery manufacturer, W Moorcroft plc. In addition, as a Director at Grant Thornton, David headed the firm’s Entrepreneurial Advisory practice in Liverpool where he provided strategic, commercial and financial support services to entrepreneurial businesses to facilitate growth and maximise shareholder value.
Ian Johnson, Partner at Cowgill Holloway said: “Our clients look to us for commercial advice and solutions. David brings a strong SME background, which is complemented by his work in the professional services arena. We have added another outstanding person to our team. His depth and breadth of experience will be of significant benefit to help move Cowgill Holloway’s outsourcing solution forward. He will be a terrific asset to our team and our clients.”
David will be responsible for providing cost-effective, outsourced Financial Director services for clients and prospective clients. He will also lead Cowgill Holloway’s “Shareholder Review Service”. This service is built from a one day workshop which looks at shareholder objectives and their exit aspirations and provides potential solutions to bridge the valuation gap.
Commenting on his appointment, David said: “The role is a fantastic opportunity to be a driving force in developing Cowgill Holloway’s expanding financial outsourcing activities. We strongly believe that there is a real opportunity to provide high quality, pragmatic business and financial advice to ambitious entrepreneurs in the region – delivered on either a project basis or in a retained role akin to an outsourced FD.”
