Chris is an experienced audit director based in our Glasgow office. Chris works with a diverse range of corporate clients with a focus on technology, leisure, and property clients. Chris also specialises in the social housing and pensions sectors.

Chris joined RSM as a graduate in 2008 where he worked to attain his CA qualifications.  He forms part of our national pensions senior leadership team and contributes to the Family Forward group.

Chris builds rapport and strong relationships with clients, through communicating in an approachable style, and delivering consistent premium service. 

‘I fully believe in honesty and being open with people. I always try to treat others with respect, and I try to never ask anything from anyone that I would not expect of myself.’

Outside of work Chris is a dad of three and loves spending time with his children.  He also devotes time to the ICAS Foundation which helps support social mobility, ethnic diversity and gender diversity in students studying accountancy and finance at university. Chris has also coached his son’s football team for a few years now which has been an enjoyable experience too.
