Tim Rush

Audit Partner, Gatwick

KPMG in the UK

Tim has over 20 years’ experience at KPMG of which the last 7 years have been in the Gatwick office. During his time at KPMG Tim has specialised working with private companies across PE Portfolio assets, Family businesses and Owner managed business. His role has been to work alongside management and the owners to future proof the group in readiness to an exit, whether that is a secondary buy-out, trade sale, succession planning or listing.

He is a qualified accountant where his client work has been supplemented with his experience on secondment to industry as Deputy FD at a FTSE 250, a four year secondment to KPMG New Zealand as well as working within KPMG in the UK’s Capitals Market Group. Tim currently is a board member of the Gatwick Diamond Initiative which is a private/public sector organisation focusing on improving the economic growth of the Gatwick diamond area.

Tim grew up and went to school in Dorking and now lives in the Surrey Hills in Woldingham. He has two children and is married to Becky. He enjoys playing tennis and golf as well as making the most of the stunning countryside that this area offers. In taking on the senior office role Tim notes the following:

“It is a great honour to lead the Gatwick office across a region I grew up in and know well. There is a wealth of opportunity for companies to grow and be successful within Surrey, Sussex and Kent where we are fortunate to have the privilege to work alongside them to help fulfil this potential. I have an excellent local team which is expanding to meet the needs of our clients and am looking forward to solving the new challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing landscape”.

"I work exclusively with private capital clients in Surrey, Sussex and Kent with the majority undertaking a growth trajectory to a potential exit event whether that be a sale or succession."

Tim has extensive experience of IFRS and is forward thinking in terms of the impact of new accounting standards bringing insight on commercial consequences and not just focusing on the accounting implications.
