Sector dedication provides specialist charity accounting support

Our partners have decades of professional and personal commitment to the sector, and a determination to identify practical, real-world solutions for our clients.

Empowering and guiding clients

Gavin Davis

Partner

Gavin joined MHA MacIntyre Hudson in June 2018 and is the Partner who leads our Technology Advisory Services practice. He joined the firm from BDO LLP where he led the technology consultancy practice for more than five years. Gavin has more than 35 years of experience in the IT industry and, besides running his own IT consultancy business for ten years, has worked for some of the worlds largest IT companies including; Fujitsu, Dell, Capita, Ricoh and Atos.

As well as a formal training in Electronic Engineering, Gavin holds several industry qualifications including; MCSE, PRINCE2, ITIL and CISM. In previous roles Gavin has developed global IT consulting methodologies, delivered (and recovered) several large high-profile IT projects as well as managing large teams of consultants, engineers and project managers.

Technology Advisory Services provides a range of services to support business in the mid-market. In these businesses it is not uncommon to find the Finance Director (or other senior board member) responsible for IT. Gavin calls them “The Quasi IT Director” ® and typically they become reliant on junior IT staff or third-party IT support companies for strategic advice, which may not always be in the best interest of the company.

Gavin and his team are completely independent and can provide advice that is based around your business and specific requirements. Typical services include:

  • IT reviews to identify areas where IT might be causing issue around the business
  • Strategic IT advice, to help get the best out of your IT, both now and in the future
  • Application procurement support (specification and selection) and,
  • Outsource IT director services.

Gavin also supports the MHA MacIntyre Hudson Corporate Finance Mergers and Acquisitions teams by providing IT due diligence on both the buy and sell side.
