Arthur Kirk

I am a down to earth, values driven professional with extensive experience and capability in public practice succession planning and execution, due diligence, merger and acquisition.

My career commenced with KPMG and I’ve worked in professional services for over thirty five years.

As the Managing Director of Forsyths Chartered Accountants and Financial Advisers I was at the forefront of driving succession and retirement planning for the firm. Initially, this involved an extensive process of research, discussion and agreement to develop a thorough Owners Agreement to facilitate entry and exit arranagemets. During my last four years with Forsyths I had the lead role in the retirement process for eight owners including my own!
