Our
People

We are Galloways.
We are a group of great people helping even greater clients manage their financial affairs

Galloways is a full-service accounting firm based in Sussex. Operating from multiple offices across the county we look after small, medium and large businesses, charities and individuals. We have over 100 people with specialist expertise across all areas of accountancy, taxation, and financial planning. We run our firm like a business, just like our clients do. Yes, we are accountants, but we want to be successful, have great careers, enjoy our work and make money, and we make that happen by working with like-minded people.

Our firm has been in existence for a very long time (1870 we think). The only relevance our longevity has is that it has enabled us to build a fabulous client base in Sussex. We are pretty certain that we don’t have many clients that date back to our beginnings, but we have many family and business customers that we have been looking after for many generations, and you can be confident that we plan to continue to do the same for generations to come. In 2018 our firm received investment from Cow Corner — a local investment business with a long-term commitment to serving the Sussex business community.

Mark has worked across a wide range of sectors and at all stages of the life cycle of a business. After qualifying with a firm in Brighton and then moving to do a decade at a top-tier firm, Mark joined Galloways as a partner.


Mark is a client service partner and likes to keep it simple recognising there are two key things to do. “First, look after and develop the team, second, look after clients. I find if you do the first well, the second is easy as clients feel really understood by the team and have a great experience.”
