Meet The Leadership Team

Individually we have gained considerable experience and expertise in all aspects of accountancy – but collectively we come together as an effective team to provide unified support in both long term planning and reacting quickly to day to day matters.

Kay Flanagan FCA CTA

Managing Director

Kay joined the practice in 1992 and subsequently became the major shareholder in 2016.

Kay qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Grant Thornton, then following success in the Institute of Taxation exams, she moved to Deloitte Touche for personal and trust tax experience. More experience in corporate tax followed at Ernst & Young – so prior to MacMahon Leggate, Kay worked for and gained experience from three out of the top six global Chartered Accountants.

Kay, amongst many other responsibilities, leads our personal tax (including inheritance) department.

Richard Robinson FCA BA (Hons)



Having trained and qualified locally with Ainsworths, then Cassons, Richard joined the practice in 2004 and was made partner in 2006.

Like Kay, Richard is Audit regulated, and alongside his other responsibilities, heads up our corporate tax team advising on tax efficient corporate structures.
