About Us

Founder Story.

Founder and Managing Director Adam Pritchard, ACCA, MA, BA. 

“I began my career in the creative industries working for film and theatre companies before taking a role as a management consultant in a small London consultancy firm.

It was clear to me that the advancements in technology and the democratisation of information, education and data meant that in order to stay relevant accountants needed to change.

My vision was to build  a practice that looked and felt more like a fintech company. Linford Grey is such a firm. An advisory led practice with an impressive tech stack that we leverage to add value for clients. A carefully crafted service offering that ensures everyone receives value and has access to the expertise they require, when they require them.”

Linford Grey Story.

Linford Grey started life, as most businesses do, and that is to say small and with an idea.

Being an advisory led practice, focussed on building an ecosystem of assets that we can leverage for the benefit of clients has allowed us to successfully scale client services whilst growing rapidly and organically servicing niches in the hospitality, e-commerce and turnaround sectors as well as the wider SME and startup market.

We are Xero Certified Gold Partners and in 2019/20 we were just one of three finalists for the Xero National Award, ‘Practitioner of the Year’. This is testament to the quality of our client services and the execution of and commitment to our own ambitions in the industry.

Our Culture.

Linford Grey considers life and business synonymous. We believe personal responsibility and hard work serve as the cornerstone of a philosophy that singularly and coherently delivers success and binds the community we create. 

This means that we deliver for our clients, we are motivated by the achievement of excellence and perhaps most importantly the result which is the most important part of our client relationships.

This manifests in a corporate culture that values enterprise and personal responsibility, where the goal of every member of the team is to pro-actively drive the agenda of our clients’ businesses as well as our own.

We want to work with like-minded individuals that are passionate about what they do. Committed to excellence and looking to build a relationship with us that goes beyond a set of year end accounts and a tax return.
