Full circle: from practice to industry, and back
Andrew Smith completed his ACCA professional qualification in the mid 1990’s at T Rawlinson & Co, a chartered accountancy practice in Grimsby. In 1999, he moved into industry as a finance director for a large, local fish-processing factory. He held this position for 11 years and during that time gained valuable experience in all aspects of running a business. He oversaw the company’s sale to an AIM listed PLC and worked in a PLC environment for 3 years before overseeing the company’s sale back into private ownership.
During his time in industry Andrew also ran his own part time accountancy practice, and in April 2010 decided to leave industry and pursue his ambition to run his own practice. In July 2012 Andrew acquired T Rawlinson & Co, the very company he started his journey at, and with a further acquisition of Mike Parr Accountancy Services in September 2017, A G Smith & Co has become one of the leading independent accountancy practices in the area.
