New head of not-for-profit at Kingston Smith

Neil Finlayson will head up top 20 Kingston Smith's NFP operation, having joined the firm in 2001

KINGSTON SMITH has confirmed the appointment of Neil Finlayson as its head of not-for-profit.

Finlayson (pictured) joined the firm in 2001, and has played a key role in its education group as well as the services it provides to international charities.

His appointment forms part of the Kingston Smith’s succession planning programme, and sees him take on the role from the outgoing Nick Brooks, who will now focus on the firm’s consultancy services to the sector and on sector commitments including the ICAEW and the Institute of Fundraising.

Kingston Smith senior partner Martin Muirhead said: “Nick is passing on the baton to Neil as part of our succession plan and to allow him to concentrate on his various other roles in the sector, particularly those for the ICAEW. He has been instrumental in developing our hugely successful not-for-profit team, leading it since the merger of Gane Jackson Scott in 1996 right through to the dynamic multi-disciplinary group it is today.”

Martin continues: “I am thrilled to welcome Neil to his new role as head of not-for-profit. His many years’ experience and evident passion for the sector fuel his vision to lead this key strategic group for the firm to further growth and success.”
