Life at the Chelmsford office

 

Our office sits in the heart of Chelmsford’s vibrant city centre. With everything you need being just a 5-minute walk away, it’s an ideal office location for all ages. Chelmsford boasts three shopping centres and a bustling high-street with offerings from designer brands to market bargains. Lunchtimes can be spent indulging in some retail therapy or relaxing beside a lake in one of the many parks. Central Park is a short walk away and has many beautifully planted areas to explore and enjoy the local wildlife. 

Being in the city centre means that exciting social events are regularly held. Chelmsford is home to an excellent theatre, two cinemas, numerous festivals of the year, countless bars and an ever-growing number of dining spots – there is something for everyone!

Being one of the smaller offices at MHA MacIntyre Hudson with around 30 members of staff, our office is a friendly and welcoming environment where the whole team are approachable and regularly support each other. We are an open plan office with an open-door policy, making communication and teamwork one of our biggest strengths. The office atmosphere is fun and sociable, ensuring that new team members easily integrate and form strong friendships.

The Chelmsford office appreciates a regular flow of new clients from local businesses, schools and charities which strengthens our position in the local market and the not for profit sector. We specialise in the not for profit sector and as an office have an interest in helping to support local causes. We also work with a number of London based companies due to Chelmsford’s convenient location within the commuter belt, adding to the continued growth of our office. Increasingly we are getting involved with cross-office projects, working with our colleagues in London and more globally at Baker Tilly International.

We are looking to welcome new team members who are motivated and keen to overcome challenges, meet new clients and people, and want to help us grow the local business.

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.
