We are proud of our personal and responsive approach, which we believe is the key to building successful relationships that enable our clients to achieve their business goals.  Whether your business needs a growth strategy, advice on acquisition or sales, guidance on the complexities of incorporation or flotation, compliance or tax, MHA MacIntyre Hudson can help you seize the initiative.

At MHA MacIntyre Hudson, we aim to combine our years of experience and knowledge with the right support and understanding for your business, helping to secure success both now, and tomorrow.

Mike Kay

Partner

Mike is a well known name amongst the professional community in Essex and beyond. Over 20 years’ experience has ranged from secondment to clients, dealing with day to day challenges, through to heading up our Corporate Finance team in London and the South East. He has been awarded the "CF" designation by the ICAEW recognising his M&A experience since 1995.

Mike’s reputation and client base extends beyond East Anglia to the South Coast and up to the Midlands. He is regularly recommended by other professionals and clients for his simple and straightforward advice led approach - which he believes greatly increases the ability to understand, deliver and succeed - and his extensive knowledge of many industry sectors including leisure and hospitality, manufacturing and logistics. He is frequently instructed by banks to act on their behalf when considering lending propositions.

Working with businesses of all sizes, Mike has a particular focus on entrepreneurial clients, with many planning for future acquisitions, exits, buy outs and finance raising, drawing on his extensive knowledge in this area. Mike is often asked to provide business valuations in connection with matrimonial disputes and corporate restructurings.

Away from the office Mike can usually be found watching a game of rugby, when not working on his house renovation project, or enjoying a few glasses of fine wine. Unfortunately all this has limited his ability to reduce his golfing handicap.
