Andy Minifie

Regional Chairman

Haines Watts


I provide full time leadership and strategic advice to regional teams of Business Advisors and Accountants within the Haines Watts Group.

Haines Watts are the only top 20 firm of Chartered Accountants to be totally focused on Owner Managed Business.

My motivation for both the firm and myself to succeed comes from a driving belief in good quality commercial business advice, delivered by a top quality team, to help business owners achieve their goals.

My experience comes from working within Haines Watts for over 30 years, 16 of those as Group Managing Partner. During my time as Managing Partner I saw many changes in the way we worked both internally and with clients; I helped to guide the firm through these changes and saw our group compliance and advisory turnover grow from £20m to £80m. Much of my role involved developing Haines Watts from being a traditional accountancy business to being a wider based multi-disciplinary firm of business advisors.

I remains dedicated to leading the business from the front and am happiest when sharing my experience and helping to develop the next generation of young enthusiastic team members. If you are a driven professional with energy and talent; and you are looking for a new challenge or experience, then contact me and let’s consider working together. Together we can achieve so much more!

I am part of the leadership team for Haines Watts offices in Scotland, East of England, East Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, and the West Midlands; helping the directors and partners to develop and grow their business.

Prior to Haines Watts I worked with a Top 4 firm both in the UK and in the Far East.

Despite my Yorkshire upbringing, I live in the West Midlands with my wife Kathryn, and on the rare occasions when I’m not working I enjoy travelling and water sports
